grandma's here

last night, it was a joy to pick up kath (geoff's mum) from the lexington airport.  isaac spent weeks counting down her arrival and yesterday he went from hour to hour asking "how much longer till grandma arrives?".  she had safe, uneventful flights that took her through new zealand, los angeles and chigaco, before getting to us.  she will be with us until the end of july.  after almost 10 years of a cross-cultural marriage, geoff and i, and the rest of our family, are becoming very adept at savoring every moment and relishing the memories formed quickly that have to sustain us for the long drought in between visits.  we have lots of plans for our time with kath and we are glad to wake into the first day of her visit.
