Work Begins

So just like that, two days after graduation, we started clearing out the library for the move to Trumau. I'm used to working during the Summer, but I don't think I've ever transitioned from studying to working quite so suddenly before. It's a nice change of pace, though. 

We celebrated Maria's birthday a little bit this evening for Katie's benefit, since she is leaving early tomorrow morning. Maria requested mashed potatoes with "onions" [leeks] in them, just like Rob makes them.
