Lots of activity this summer. Ross went to Romania and Belgium for soccer, while Ariana stayed out in LA to do a couple of internships. Both came back for some time in August -- Ross from July 18 - Aug 21, Ariana from the Aug 13 - 24. We had visits from Ross's friends Peter and Molly, and from my college roommate, Mike Foote, and his family. The weather was terribly hot and humid, but never any rain (less than an inch total from our arrival July 5 to date). This was great for vacating, less so for the farmers. Links below chronicle some of the doings.
