I just wanted to say this: I haven't talked to Adam in a couple of weeks. But it was so nice, I saw him four times in less than two months. He came home for Mother's Day which was really sweet. He didn't get to the mall (his lament) before he came, so when I went down to Springfield to see him over Memorial Day, he took me to the mall to get supplied with tea from Teavana, the elegant tea store. Then he took me out to eat at the Chesapeake (very nice restaurant) and insisted on paying. We were supposed to grill out, but the weather was pretty ugly. June 11 he came home for his birthday, and he also made an appearance July 1-2 when Betsy and Chris were here. Don't think we have had this much visits in- ever. While none of my kids are particularly a-ttached, Adam is the most detached so it has made me happy to have this contact with him.
Okay, so Cal cracked me up yesterday. He was hanging around and took an unposed picture of me. See below. He goes, "This isn't bad. Look at your luscious hair!"
