Teenage boy, part 1

It's that time of year again--when my stepson comes to stay with us.

I've laid in a supply of kid-friendly foods I don't normally buy: sandwich bread, lunch meat, mild cheddar cheese, yellow mustard, ranch dressing. To keep such costs to a minimum, I didn't buy cereal, juice, chips, or grape jelly.

I made batches of vanilla ice cream, chocolate chip cookies, and tomato sauce. We've got a week of Seattle-area sightseeing planned, including (I hope) trips to Olympic National Park and Snoqualmie Falls. Let's hope having a teenage boy around the house doesn't drive the both of us to distraction.
