Okay, so I did have the three days done, but I was away at children’s camp with The Eldest. So as a grand finale, we get FIVE days!!
Day 27: Goldfish
I love the movie Big Fish. And maybe it’s because I grew up in a small town that it resonated. But now that I got out of that small town and have children of my own, I find myself looking to shrink my world again.
Day 28: Baby
This was the day that my Eldest baby left home without me. I had to stay with the twins until the weekend when I joined her at camp. But I waved at her from the parking lot as the van left, carrying her and her Pooh she has had for ten years.
Every past year, we have taken a big vacation–either beach or mountain. This year, it won’t happen, but probably for the best since we needed a/c repair, plumbing repair, pest treatment, and we want to redo our bathroom. This is the summer of HOME. But the memories remain.
Day 30: Jellyfish
My least favorite part of the ocean is swimming with things, especially things that can hurt me or my babies. But I found this quote about jellyfish, and I have to agree. It’s magnificent, and even more so when I can watch it behind an aquarium glass.
Day 31: Fireworks
How exciting to finish a goal. How wonderful to accomplish these little milestones that have memories flooding them. And laughter along the way. Quite the journey.
And now I have quite a “portfolio”!
