It took us until mid-September, but we finally had an actual beach day. It was lovely.
Kurt made us chase him around the sand and the ocean and never showed any signs of wanting to stop. Maria lasted maybe ten minutes in the ocean before she began to shiver violently. Maria 's utter lack of body fat is a major obstacle to her goal of becoming a mermaid. Anyway, after that she mostly played in the sand next me as I reclined beneath the Umbrella of Awesomeness (my birthday gift from Jeff's parents).
Plenty has been going on these days and I almost certainly owe you an email, message, call or Skype, but I appear to be even more disorganized and incapacitated than usual, so please stand by whilst I get my crap together in the next week or so.
