It's been so long since the last post, there are a few milestones I just wanted to list:
1. Johann finished the last class of his undergraduate education this August! Now we're just waiting for all the paper work concerning a waived class to come through to make the graduation official! Henry and I are so proud!
2. Henry is now a roller! On July 16th at 8:22pm he rolled for the first time from his tummy to his back and on August 13th at 11:41am he rolled from his back to his tummy-his now favorite past time. Now he's always trying to sit up and crawl, though he's only managed to crawl any real distance backwards...hopefully he'll figure that one out and start going in the right direction :) He's an awfully determined baby!
3. During the summer term I worked on a critical volume of Pierre Corneille's Andromeda, a 17th century French play, with some French and humanities students. After a lot of extended nights we finally completed the project by sending it in for publishing. I worked as the primary writer of the critical introduction to the play and though it was at times tedious and I'm still not sure I consider it 'done', I am overall pleased with what was done in so short a time.
Well, there you have it--what the Simonds have been up to this summer. I'm sure as we move into Fall I'll have more news to report!
