He knows more random facts about unique animals, or strange places, then anyone I have ever known. He has a love for life, and a thirst for knowing all about how the planet we live on works. He amazes me with his memory, and I want him to fill it up with good things.
She also did my laundry for me all summer. When someone does your laundry, as a mom you feel like you are on vacation. Well, back to the laundry for me, and back to school for you sweetie, back to books, boys, wood shop,(?) and health science. Just smile baby, you'll be fine.
Here is my world traveler, my Mona Lisa, which she saw in person this summer, by the way. She has worked full time this summer to pay for her next trip, next summer to England and Ireland she goes.
She keeps me stable, and calm, when she is around I feel grounded, and that life is going as planned. Her senior year holds great promise for her. I hope her future includes many, many more trips, beautiful old buildings, gorgeous photos, original paintings, graceful dancing, and the stars, the stars honey, you know they are within your reach!
Yes, my oldest is still running faster then I can catch up too! I think she started this as soon as she could walk. I tried to hold her down, but I have to say I have never succeeded. She is a junior at college this year, says she wants to be an English teacher, and I am sure she could teach me a thing or two. She is an explorer, always off and discovering things I can't teach her.
I love to watch her, tackling a new challenge, and coming out on top. She always comes out on top! I am so happy for the beautiful adult daughter she is, and I am glad she is my friend, one of my favorite people in the world!
Yes, after the last one leaves the house this is what I do, sit, meditate, dream of waterfalls, and Hawaii! peace, Peace, PEACE! Shanti! Shanti! SHANTI!
Well not this year - in case you missed the big announcement,
