Sorry for the lack of posts. Lots of life intervening.
Rachel's junior year of college ended this week and she's now home for three days before returning for a summer theater job. This will be her first summer away from home.
Ben has now taken the SAT and ACT and passed his driver's ed class. Now he just needs 56 more hours behind the wheel before he can take his driving test. This is easily the busiest time in Ben's life so far.
On Friday Carol and I saw the DC flyover and took video. I'll post that once I've edited it.
We saw Avengers: Age of Ultron for the second time tonight. It's a good, but not great, superhero movie. The huge weight of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is complicating the storylines and the sheer number of characters is getting cumbersome. This was inevitable, I suppose. Worse, though, while the action in the first Avengers movie was very clean and easy to follow, the editing in this movie was very choppy and the action was difficult to follow at times. It was still a fun ride, but not as good as the first one.
And finally, Happy Mother's Day! (Especially you, Mom).
