p. and i have been running around all day getting ready to leave tomorrow for the family holiday trip. he took part in an assembly at school this morning where his class sang and played music on flutes, after which we spent the rest of the afternoon shopping, organizing, cleaning, etc.
i'll have my laptop with me on the trip but will be in very spotty communication (if at all) with the rest of the world until i return on the 28th. so if you can't get a hold of me, you'll know why. =)
