Trips, Tests, and Temperatures

We greeted Bob at the airport this morning, home from a short business trip to Mexico. Then Eric spent the afternoon taking the LEAP test. Not exactly sure what that stands for, but it's a required standardized test in Louisiana for 8th graders to take and pass in order to graduate to 9th grade. That's the only thing the school district is having Eric make up.
Geesh, it's hot here. Even native Louisianians are complaining about it. The weathercasters talk of near record-breaking highs (ie 102 degrees), which might not sound all that high even to Pittsburgers, but when you consider the "humidity factor," it's HOT! It rained a little in Lake Charles yesterday, but it hasn't rained here in Moss Bluff for weeks.
Keep cool!

Looks like the Lake Charles airport is as bustling as ever!! Stay cool--wish I still had my house with the pool to have you over. Hope all continues to go well. love, Jennifer

Yesterday it reached 88 degrees here. The paper used the word "sizzling" to describe it, but I thought that was unfair when I read about your 102. We want to know if you can really fry an egg on the sidewalk when it's that hot, but wouldn't want to waste an egg.
