Amy and Kennedy Anne are back home safely in chilly West Michigan. They left Friday evening and got back to Michigan in the wee hours of Saturday morning.
It was a great visit with them. I don't know about Elaine but I've forgotten how much work it is to have a baby in the house. (It's been more than 20 years since there was a baby in house - until Kennedy.) She is a sweet, beautiful, smart, adorable, baby. And her mom's pretty darn wonderful, too.
Now we're getting ready for more visitors from the States. Our friend Erin is coming for her second visit and Mike and his wife Tracy and Dan and his daughter Alison are coming to fly kites with us next weekend.
Our plan is to have a fully fledged festival on the beach next March. Next weekend is a preview for local residents and potential sponsors of what we can do with sport kites and what a festival on the beach might look like. More about that as it happens.
