|her 'I'm leaving for 6 weeks so can you make my favorite dessert" dessert the night before (cherry pie)|
|skyping with big bro|
|"ok mom, enough with the photos.. can we get to my cabin now? please?"|
|Will and I returned the next day to say one more goodbye. she was like, "really?"|
|one more squeeze before she ran off|
It's a done deal. She's there and we are here and like it or not, our little girl is growing up. She'll be back and we will celebrate her return and rest again in the sound of her laughter filling up those empty spaces in our home. But I know that it will only be for a time and then she will want to leave once again for someplace away from her daddy and me. And that is as it should be, but for now, here in this weird strange space without her, we miss her. So much. Have fun beautiful girl and see you in 6 weeks!!
