Vacation! For three days, then I'm home for a day before heading to Vienna for a conference for 10 days. Max and I went to the beach in Virginia. When we got there, it was raining. But we made the most of it. Because of the weather, the wind was perfect for flying a kite! The kite is from last summer, and the cross bar was missing. So Max, rather brilliantly, found a stick and used a knife to make it fit where the cross bar would go. And it worked (as is clearly evidenced by this photo)!
