2010 U.S. Tour!

We made a trip back to the States to visit family and friends.  Kate saw all sorts of interesting people… (this is just a sampling- too many more not listed here!)

She saw her grandmother:

and finally, she went swimming for the first time and thought it was hilarious.

It was an enjoyable trip, although the near-nonstop travel and visiting were exhausting!

We’re back home in Scotland, but leave for Paris in just a few short days.  We have a fully-funded month in France courtesy of some obscure foundation, and I will be taking some French language classes.  More details from France soon!
