From an email from home:
Thor's doing fine, aside from his continued lack of respect for personal space and sensitive body parts. We've been playing hard core tug of war (um... on a related topic, you now have a one-armed snowman plush toy). Loki even joined in at one point. Had one toy/dog for each hand and Thor spun all of us around for a few minutes. Then we collapsed in the grass and watched the fireflies start to come out.
