Monday night I picked up my son from baseball practice, sweat pouring down his face, and took him to Sonic for a small half-price shake. We drove home past wheat fields being harvested and down the back roads, where we saw a deer and the almost-full moon up before it was even dark. We got home, discovered one of our mama cats had given birth when she came up to us skinny and very eager to eat, which means we have more kittens somewhere in our garage. Walked into the house and saw 19 yo A playing Yahtzee with the younger kids. Just love and joy and peace everywhere.
I think this is the absolutely last flower that is going to bloom this year. Anything else will be a surprise to me. I'll be watching for wildflowers, I guess.
This week, my 18 year old daughter is moving into her own apartment. Which means the 16 year old is chomping at the bit to move into the 18 year olds' bedroom, after sharing a bedroom her whole life. My house is a wreck between that, and being gone for the reunion. I have some work to do.
Enjoy your summer!
