I am so tired, I don't think I can make a summary post right now, but I did manage to get pictures put online.
In short, the presentation at the conference went well. The rest of the conference was very enjoyable. I met some great people from U of Texas @ Austin, Concordia, Clemson, etc. Jack had a great time with Gma Rose. He went from mostly scared of the water to swimming on his own. We saw Old Montreal a lot. We took the Metro around to see other sites like the Botanical Gardens and the Olympic Park from 1976.
Traveling was not that bad. Customs was odd, but not painful. The cats were slightly neurotic when we got home, but they are settling back down. There were some big black ants (carpenter ants?) in the kitchen yesterday, but I think I got them all. Why on earth they had to show up while we were gone, I don't know.
Jack met a French-Canadian girl named Kelly who was on her way to Italy with her family. He gave her his email address, lol. I forgot to try to look up the Cunninghams who had been in Mexico with us for the summer program before. Oh well.
Now I am trying to get back into work and marathon training. That's all for now!
