Landing at the lake

Believe it or not, I’m in the parking lot of the town hall near the lake using the free wi-fi. A dear friend is visiting for the afternoon so I am stealing this moment to let you know how well the family is doing.  So many of you have been so generous in your check ins, comments, and thoughts.  Yes, there were moments when I felt deep pangs of loss that I was not in a hotel pool splashing around with Sam’s birth family across the country.  But those have been few and far between. Sam hasn’t mentioned it once. So, I am letting it be, for now. I suppose it is as simple as noticing that this is where we are now, in every sense of the word. And, it is exactly where we need to be.  See for yourself.

Morning at the lake
Sam in his kayak, looking at the lilies.
Naps wherever they need to be
On the count of 3! Or is that 4? 5?
A little shut eye for Mama
Nothing like a boat ride with Uncle!
Just one photo please!
