Yes, the homeland beckons. Melissa and the girls and I will be leaving tomorrow for a two week stay in Washington state, culminating in a big family reunion in Spokane over the 4th of July weekend. It's my parents' 40th wedding anniversary this summer--technically not until August, but the holiday weekend was the only time the schedules of all nine children, eight spouses, one fiancee, and 29 living grandchildren overlapped, so that's when we're doing it. Should be fun; certainly the girls are looking forward to it, as it's a chance to spend time with cousins they see very rarely, if ever. I may blog about one or two things, if the time and inclination to do so coincide, but otherwise, I'll be back in July. Enjoy the rest of June!
