Keeping up with the kids is a full time job! Jill and Michael just returned from Ohio, Catherine is now in Africa, and Carl has been diving at Salt Creek. We've been doing our usual things, including a walk yesterday in the pouring rain. This afternoon we went to a piano concert and had dinner with friends, all fun but not nearly as exciting as their adventures.

Here's Catherine on top of the world somewhere in India.

Sophia had great fun at the farm in Ohio. David is learning about insects, and Daniel changes a little bit every day. (Photos courtesy of Jill and Michael)

Carl sent me an interesting video of his last dive where he saw a kelp forest, lots of herring and some deep diving sealions.

Meanwhile, I finished a hat for Daniel and am caught up on week 3 of my socks.

And I finally remembered to do this month's TUSAL report. You can see the snippets of yarn from my recent projects. Looks like a new jar is in order, don't you think?

With that. we're off for an adventure of our own: a few days in Chicago, visiting the grandkids in person. See you in a week or so.

Sea lions !! Amazing footage of the dive. And that is one very happy baby - we'll need to see a picture of him in that very cute hat.

Great progress on your TUSAL! Great pics and love the Christmas tree cap! Too cute.

Just mash it down ---- you can fit another six or seven projects in there. LOL

My jar --- sadly empty. It got dumped on vacation. :-( It wasn't MY fault.

The kids (and grands) look great. Love the smilin' baby! Have a good time in Chicago.

You certainly have a busy and adventurous family. Your grandson is gorgeous, what a beautiful smile he has.

Love your knitting, and that sealion video is amazing! I did get a giggle out of the text just before the sealions make their appearance. LOL
