Back!

It was a fantastic summer -- we'll never forget it -- but man, it feels so nice to be home. We spent the last few days unpacking (a big job, since we packed away most of the stuff in the house before our sub-letters moved in), going through a mountain of mail, and getting back to our normal routine. We also made time for lazing in the Northern California sunshine, Harry Potter, and planting the garden for fall.

Some photos from the last few weeks in Paris
