21~ Snow In Mammoth

They're off to see the snow in Mammoth! In July! Practically the end of July, and they may be skiing.

Alex texted me from the road, "Lots of bats in the high desert." I love it when my children have their own adventures, travel, build things, explore... and I love it when they report back to the Bird House, share something of their impressions, and experiences. A success of parenting is seeing my children grow, develop their views, make their way, but it's hard, too. I don't need to cling to them, or hold anyone back. I think I've described it before... they're like the best novels, and all I want is to go on following the story, appreciating the characters, plot developments, scenery. I can't put their stories down!

With Infinity More Monkeys, a picture a day.

Oh yes yes yes yes! The bit of nervousness that's simply always there -- not because they can't, not because they shouldn't, but just because we love them so much. And then that joyful mix of satisfaction -- they want to do this! they CAN do this! they know that there are ever-eager ears and eyes for their stories and so they share generously (even just the *made it!* messages that we know and love). Deep, happy sigh.
