We Made It This Far

We Made It This Far

My son graduated from high school one week ago and I am remain awestruck by the passage of time, the morphing of our family dynamics, the possibilities that lie ahead of him. We all say it: Where did the time go? It doesn’t seem like twelve years since I snapped this photo of him, standing…

Graduation

Our little trio is growing up.

What is the point?

What is the point?

Since losing most of my blog, it’s set me to thinking about the whole idea of blogging. What is the point?
