hello there, friend,

you wrote about the passage of time yesterday in some ways... how you are able to communicate more with your daughter, how she is entering a new stage...

transitions remind me of the same thing... this morning, my kids got on the bus for the last time as two sixth graders and an eighth grader. the next time they get on the bus, one of them will be starting high school. there are moments when i count how many summers they have left at home with us and something catches in my heart and throat both...

i love having the summer with my kids... i love making memories and being intentional about our time off. we make lists of things we want to do, what we want to learn, what we want to create, what we want to read, where we want to go...

i want to make the most of each moment, want to pay attention, to hear them, to know them, to hold them close while i can.

xo,
b
