Finally, this girl is back in school today: 3rd grade! I think this goes on record as the Longest. Summer. Ever. We've traveled quite a bit since the first week of June when summer break began for her and have been blessed to share experiences with people we hold dear. On her first day back she was tasked with the "Draw a picture about a favorite part of the summer"assignment that is popular the world over.
It's a gentle reminder for me to keep the focus where it needs to be and keep it simple, a goal for this new year, and a bit of a nudge to remember that this is her life story with her memories filled with her details.
