Welcome Back Jordan!

Jordan is, at least for now, stateside again. Hooray!
By all accounts, he is great. I know that you guys, just like me, are dying to see him, so I am posting some of the pictures that Margot took when they met Jordan in North Carolina this past weekend.

Mom and Luis, White Plantation, circa 1957

I wanted to post an old picture of Uncle Luis on Thursday but didn't have any.
Mom found this one over the weekend and I couldn't resist posting it.

Happy Birthday Catherine and Uncle Luis and More Good Stuff

If I have my dates correct Neets' birthday is tomorrow, and Uncle Luis' birthday is on Sunday. Happy Birthday! I hope you both have a wonderful day and know that we will all be thinking about you.

Here is a cute picture from way back when that I found a bit ago while digging through my scrapbook. It looks like Catherine must've been either 1.5 or 2.5.

Please send me any pictures you would like to post and any exciting news. Here's a wrap-up of new stuff that is going on that I know about:

1. Molly started working on a new show recently and is really enjoying it. The name of the show is "Tings Dey Happen" and it looks like one I would enjoy. I am kind of bummed I can't make it to NYC while it is running. She just emailed me the link to a wonderful NYTs review and, if I can figure it out, I will post the link so you can check it out.

2. Mom starts her new job working as an aid and tutor at Abrahmson, a charter school based on the renown Harmony model. The school has a website and it is definitely worth checking out. It really looks like it is going to be awesome. If I can figure out how to make it work I will post the link.

3. Lucy is going to start the toddler program at ASH next Monday. It is hard to believe, but another generation of our family is starting up at ASH. Pretty incredible.

4. We are going to be out at Thib for Labor Day - anyone else? I know Baby Edward will be there because Lucy can't stop talking about it.

I hope everyone is well and that those of you who are gearing back up for school (Laura, Baker, Molly, Richmond, Catherine - well technically you have been back, right?-) are well-reseted and ready to go.

I miss all of you far away and send my love!

Friday Night At Galatoire's

Josh and Erika are in town for the weekend so we celebrated Josh's be-lated birthday at Galatoire's tonight.
It was loud, bustling and delicious. We had an excellent time.
