Welcome to WebmasterWorld.
Google typically begins its update "dance" around the 23rd, give or take a couple days. Probably your sites will be included in the new update, but they may not show PageRank. If not, that will be forthcoming the following update.
Be cautious about extensive interlinking of sites to the virtual exclusion of inbound links from outside sites, that can get you in trouble. If you're not up to date on that, do a search (link at top of page) for "cross linking."

Hi RaraAvis and welcome to WebmasterWorld
|Is there a "normal" date that Google updates it's database |
Not really but past performances are listed here.
Google's Past Updates [webmasterworld.com]
|what should I make of what I have read in different strings about pages being ranked/listed from "past googlebot visits"? |
hmmm... recommend not reading anything into other members SERP's, they are unlikely to reflect any true conditions of your site. Each site is very unique, in general though results are interpreted, and only with an indepth understanding of a specific web site's infrastructure can one be even close to accurate (50% of the time).

This client is dying because he has access to his site logs and sees "googlebot" but doesn't come up yet in Google. I keep telling him to be patient...be glad he's SMOKIN' everywhere else and give it some time. :)
I had to get up at 3am w/ my son and have been reading these forums for about an hour and a half. I really appreciate your feedback.

No problem, that's why we are here. (to learn and learn again.)

RaraAvis you may want to check www2.google.com and www3.google.com for an advance look at the possible results. After the crawl google results will show here first.
The "Google dance" referenced here often is a switch of databases... 1 of these two with www.google.com.
You can prepare yourself to give the client good news or bad depending on which applies?
