I love hearing about everybody's week, even little things like the dog church updates! Was that the first time he saw John there? Did Dad go down when the dog hit him? I wish I could have been there to see that! I saw a lady playing fetch in a field with a chuck-it stick and her big dog, and then there was another little dog just sniffing around, showing absolutely no interest in the ball. It brought back some very precious memories. I fear that Toby won't be the same dog when I get back, and he will have slowed down a lot over two years. Please tell me that won't be the case!?! Em, send me some pictures when you get back! Glad Tom is staying busy and making money so that he can take lots of girls out on dates. Mother, I wish you safe travels and a good time!

So we have plans to go there at least once a week now, if not twice.
I have two questions of my own:
