Labor Day Weekend

The 1st September is here and although it’s over 94F (36C) outside, there are a few signs that summer is coming to an end. The mornings are starting to get a little darker and a little more brisk, Anja and Isabel are back to school and of course, Labor Day, the traditional US celebration to end Summer is this coming weekend. Last big grilling day of the year.

Anja has been a little ill this last week, nothing really bad, if you don’t count vomiting as a major illness. She has missed three days of school already. Isabel is perfectly healthy and injury free, which is always welcome. Connor is his normal destructive self.

Lynne is also well, albeit busy at work. This semester she is also back to school since she is taking two classes. It’s a Purdue initiative to allow faculty time off from administration duties to allow study in a second discipline. I think she's enjoying it.

My marathon training is at a peak at the moment, running about 45 miles a week. I’m still injury free and on-track for Chicago, keep your fingers crossed. Its about 5 week away.

Shown below are a few photos of the kids from this last month but also two that my Mum sent over from a recent wedding they attended. She is shown pictured with my uncle Michael (her brother) and aunt Cepta and in the other with Paul and Gertie, our neighbors in Ireland.

Hope you all have a great Labor Day.
