Nice to Be Missed

This is a good example of what cat ownership is generally like, but it's turned up considerably whenever we've been away.  Poor Maia.  She's just getting used to our being back, and we leave tonight for two weeks in France, after which time I cringe to think of the damage she'll do to our legs and couches.

I have some teacher-related posts lined up while we're gone, but I might surprise you with a photo or two, so stay tuned -- and please pray for safe travels and easygoing, responsible students!
