I'm way behind in keeping up with birthdays and this blog! The gang visited me the weekend before last... time is just flying, I wish it could slow down a bit! The kids were very excited and puzzled by the apartment. Tala asked "Where's the upstairs?" many times, and Moody kept asking about the basement. It eventually sunk in that there was no upstairs and no basement.
This past weekend I drove to Columbus and "chilled" out with them... but not enough. I still cry every time I leave or they leave! Damn, it's not easy! To add to this, Sol and I are not on the same page... come the weekend and I want to do all the things I missed with the family, while he wants a break from all the handling and the hustle and the bustle of the week. At least, we both see that and recognize it. Hopefully we'll figure the point to meet in the middle before we go nuts, or nutter should I say!
Next weekend is a long one, extended till the 4th of July. The gang is coming to Ft. Wayne on Fri. and we're heading to Chicago! Chicago has been on our list for a while, since the Sharks moved there... Well, here we come! We all can't wait... Sol and I are looking forward to the wonderful company Meem and T offer; the kids, who knows what the real reason is... Moody confuses khwaila Meem with the Toothfairy... lol. Is it because she's his Godmother or because of the gifts she sends him by mail?

Shadda, Lui's sister, graduated from middle school (an important milestone in the Libyan education system) with an impressive score of 90.08%. Here she is, page 6, ID 264. Way to go Shushu!

Today is Father's Day in the US. We celebrated it, kind of, in the dead town of Fort Wayne. We got Sol two books, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, The First American: The Life and Times of Benjamin Franklin by H. W. Brands; and a book that's pertinent to our current times, >American Gospel: God, the Founding Fathers, and the Making of a Nation by Jon Meacham (the managing editor of Newsweek.)

Now, the exchange...
Dr. Donaldson: "So, what are you going to see in Indiana, Moody?"
I bet he thinks Mom's coworkers ride on horses and wear feathered head dress! I am not going to say anything, just to see how far we'll drive into Indiana tomorrow before he asks,"Where are all the Indians?"
