i found a little window time today where i was able to just sit & think.
i don't know about you, but i find it ironic, each & every single summer,
that i really have very little time to just sit & think.
when the girlies are all in school, i have my routine.
after they're all out of the house, i will spend a little time reading & catching up before heading out to run or heading over to the gym.
but for some reason, i always feel guilty just sitting & reading on blogger of all places, while they're at home.
surely it looks more spiritual if they saw me reading my bible or 700 page classic.
at the risk of sounding cliche (caroline's new word)
this summer has absolutely flown by.
in 3 weeks, the girls go back to school
in 3 weeks plus 1 day, we move savannah into her dorm room at UGA.
heaven help me on that day.
in 4 weeks she will walk into her first class
in COLLEGE for crying out loud.
i'm really not old enough for this yet.
i have made a mental list of songs NOT to listen to that day as we drive off into the sunset.
including but not limited to:
wide open space by the dixie chicks
brown eyed girl, van morrison
your song, elton john
don't you ever grow up by taylor swift
& the clencher...
landslide by stevie nicks
one headlight by the wallflowers came on the other day
& she was telling trevor how much she liked that song.
i reminded her that i played it all the time
( it was big right after gregg passed away)
& she called it "turn the engine but the engine doesn't turn".
i'll add that one to the list too.
i posted earlier about dan & savannah's yolo board adventure.
later that day they were also able to get up on one
in the ocean too.
i'm still working through our vacation photos but here are a few from that day.
