This morning my daughter left for Girl Scout camp. It occurred to me as she left that there probably has not been a day in her 11 years in which I have not spoken to her. Now I have to do 5. Whew!
She has been completely ecstatic about going. They will be up in the mountains with lakes and horses. Her usual hesitation about lions and moose in the mountains was not even broached. When her ride came, she jumped in the car and instantly started giggling with her friend. We are blessed.
