The Post That Couldn't Possibly Cover The Last Few Weeks And Involves a Lot of Pictures...
We couldn't have been more excited or happy for her. My only wish was to be a ride-along, but that's just wrong and gross and weird. I AM the mom, after all.
I had to leave her back at the Vineyard Church with her sore arm, and grandma mitts and slippers. They rounded out her nature sweater just perfectly.
She was happier than the allowable legal limit, so it wasn't too hard to let her back to her all grown-up life.
Since the basement had recently been carpeted, we decided against jacking up the house and putting it on wheels, and borrowed this teensey weensey little motorhome for the weekend instead.
Our destination? Clearwater, Manitoba. Population: 54, home of the 11th annual Harvest Moon Festival. If there are moments in life during which I am sorely tempted to throw back my head and yell; "I WAS BORN FOR THIS!" its certainly how I felt in Clearwater.
Life. So full and rich, and ever becoming what we make of it.
Go ahead. Get out there and live your awesome life.
