Ohio Highlights

Dr. Gooch has a sister.  She's a one-and-only.  Laurie amazes me with her graceful, affectionate mothering.  Her joy, her drive, her smarts.  Her garden.  Her broiled salmon and her herbal iced tea.  She's a wonder.  And a saint for taking in the six of us: for we often lack the grace and affection (especially between a certain four rascals) that fills her home.  Thank you for a perfect Ohio adventure.

Added to the rascal wish list: trampoline

A day away at Cedar Point,

A special thanks to Tim, for the fireside owl call, the ballgame, and for marrying Laurie Sue--oh, and the special Bob Dylan serenade via Rock Band.  Unforgettable.
