cast of characters

Lani and Ann are the Weaver sisters!

Lani's household consists of Steve, the long-suffering coding genius and computer security guru; Jim, Lani's tall, red-headed and handsome son, currently finishing his second year of college; Hunter, Jasmine, Himari, Chenault, the miraculous Onyx and the even more miraculous Resk, undisputed feline rulers of the house; and Jesse, the man-hating green-cheeked conure.

Ann's household consists of Don, who is not just a computer genius but a pilot, a builder, and a damn good father; their son Steve, the marathon-running, college-bound, funniest teenager I know; and wonder dog Tater.

Other family members are Laurie, Lani's beautiful daughter who teaches at elementary levels; her handsome son Alex, aka Alexander the Great; Mary and Bo, a/k/a Mom and Dad, and Bud and Ann, Steve's patient and wonderful parents.

Lots of updates (posted by Ann)

As you might imagine, in over a month a lot has happened! I'll start with Steve.

When we dropped Steve off at school, Don arranged with Steve that morning so that when Steve was ready for us to leave, he could give Don a signal. I didn't know he was doing it, but it worked beautifully. Instead of Steve being irritated because I was having a hard time leaving, (imagine that!) he gave Don the signal and when we left he was happy and excited. Good job, Don! Here are he and Don as we are leaving.

He seems to be doing great, he told me that if he had known it was going to be like this that he would have wanted to go in 9th grade. I'm going this week to see him, it's Family Weekend so I'll fly tomorrow night and spend the day at the school on Friday going to class with him and attending parent teacher conferences. That night they have a dinner at the school, and then we both fly home on Saturday. He'll return to school on Wednesday, so we have a few days to visit.

This past month, we went to visit one of Don's best friends, Mike, and his wife Michelle. We really enjoyed the visit, and they had just gotten a new dog, Missy. Look at this face - isn't she a doll? I fell in love!

I visited with Mom and Dad this weekend, and found a few pictures on Mom's camera from Steve's visit to them late this summer. Here is my favorite of Steve and Alex, and also one of Dad, Laura and Alex.

Well, if I have to condense a month into a few words, that's about it. What's up at the top of the mountain?
