Looking Back

As I'm nearly done with my time here in San Diego, I thought I'd do a little "document dump." Below are some photos that for one reason or another I didn't post over the last half-year.

Bye Bye, Jen

Last night was Henry's final one with Jen, our primary SD babysitter for the past two summers. Tomorrow, the little guy heads home for good after our five-and-a-half month adventure in SD. Jen was such a gem. It seemed Henry was always happy after spending time with her.

I took him to the store before she arrived and told him to pick out a gift. Not sure exactly how much he understood about what was going on, but he ended up choosing a couple bars of soap and a souvenir "Coronado" deck of cards. You can see them sitting on top of our thank you card in the corner of the photo below.

Any way you slice it, he was bummed to see her go. Jen told me he had a little meltdown when she went to put him down for the night. Then this morning he asked about her over and over. After a while, in fact, I started spelling her name as I talked to KG on the phone, just to keep from depressing him all over again.

The whole family's going to miss her very, very much. All the best, Jen. Thanks for everything!

Our First Breakfast Alone

KG went home last night.
