Jeanne is now here!

Jeanne arrived by train last night about 8:30pm. Once we got home, my son monopolized her time for a few minutes before bed - he couldn't wait to show her the Big Wheel from Price is Right that his uncle is making for him. She was a trooper and spun the wheel with him.

Her train was about 30 minutes late because of a fire on the tracks at Nisqually, south of Seattle. That was okay. It was a nice evening so my son and I didn't mind the wait.

Of course, we stayed up too late. We were up until about 12:30pm and then I had to get up about 7am to get my son ready for school.

Jeanne's talks are as follows:

I wish I could be there to hear Jeanne's talks and see both of you.

Hi Carver,
We would've loved having you at the talks . . . as well as hanging out with us doing the more informal talks. It's been fun so far - we had a sorta small but lively discussion today. But we're both starting to wind down and my son is being quite active - his energy is making me a bit more tired!!
