Catching Up

Among the many things that have happened since our lives turned into an extended episode of Candid Camera was a visit from Nana (Paul’s Mom). That amazing Mom intuition must have been at work months ago, when she arranged her travel to arrive the morning after Paul’s appendectomy.Despite the work that greeted her (me with papers to grade and a fellowship to finish; Paul in the hospital — leaving two kids and a house in need of extra support) we managed to take a few moments outside. Nana also pitched in at school, spending a day with the kids (i.e.: providing us with translation for the cryptic activities Will describes when we ask him what he did at school that day).

It was wonderful to have the visit and we can’t wait for the next!
