On a cheerier note, as I head out at the crack of dawn to hang out with lots and lots of Presbyterians:
The news a few minutes ago included a weather report (the heat!) from Atlanta. "Look!" I said to my husband. "Those kids are playing in the Olympic circles fountain, where Josh is standing in that photo we have!"
I remember the Olympic summer; as we were dropping kids off at camp in North Carolina, many of the counselors, half of whom are international, were talking about plans for going to the competitions on week-ends off. The photo, which just happens to be in my sidebar, was taken several years later, when Josh himself was a counselor spending a week-end in Atlanta.
It gave me a lot of pleasure tonight, thinking about the good times he had during those North Carolina summers.
