We had to leave earlier than we might have, because I had to get to a Capricon meeting. While I was there, Gretchen, Katie, and Julie went to the airport to pick up sibylle who had a substantial layover at O'Hare on her way back to Germany. By the time I got home, Gretchen and Sib were sitting in the backyard, filling the new wading pool for the girls.
We had some nice conversation, then took Sib over to T-Bob's to introduce her to BBQ beef brisket. Then it was time to drop her back at the airport for her flight home.
It was a good way to spend the day.
