Not that I'm counting, though.
It's been a wonderful summer, spending so much time with my youngest child. We made lots of of precious memories together, and I adore her beyond words. She's growing up much too quickly, and sadly, the time is rapidly approaching when she will be off to college. It's been a privilege this summer to put aside my work, my writing, my interests, my chores, my women's Bible study group to drive her to practices, parties and friends' homes, to do extra laundry, to make more lunches, to empathize with her middle school angst.
