Okay, back from vacation and out from under the backlog.

On the Jackson front: Jack can take a step or two. He did great on the airplane. (Even though a tragedy of errors led to almost missing our flight up to Pennsylvania, and our luggage arrived a day after we did.) He didn't like people singing Happy Birthday to him, but he had fun mashing up the cake and rubbing frosting in his hair. Soon after that, he got to take a bath in a plastic tub that I once took a bath in when I was a wee lad. He did great at his one-year checkup (and Daddy survived the sobbing from the 4 shots he got).

Heather's job is going well, and we got a last-minute hitch in child care worked out (thank goodness).

Rick is busy with work, but he's proud as punch that one of the writing projects he worked on, Adventure! won the 2001 Origins Award for Best Role-Playing Game.
