My sister is at the beach with her kids, first time they have ever been. Magic. I remember the first time each of mine saw the majesty of the ocean, my favorite memories of all times . We will be going in a couple of days, and I am no less excited now that they are 14, 12 , and 10. I love the idea of wrapping myself in them like a blanket, letting their banter cover me, and their laughter feed me. At least for a little while, and then someone will hit someone, someone will scream….and I will be ready for time apart from them. The ebb and flow of life as a parent.
Man child got his passport in the mail. What ? two weeks in Germany with his grandparents. Oh my.
That is all, an update about what goes on.
