The garden grew some more...
And our Shayla grew up and got ready to leave home.
We are in the waning stages of child-rearing. We will soon be down to the last two. Shayla got her driver's license and Sam got his permit so I have spent a lot of time in the car lately pressing down on that imaginary brake in the passenger seat
(I'm too old for this!)
They are both good drivers, it just takes practice to get there.
Andy also ordained Sam a priest while he was here. He blessed the Sacrament for the first time on Easter Sunday. It was a sweet mama moment to hear my boy (in the deep, bass Gale man-voice) say the solemn, sacred words of our weekly renewal ordinance.
I find myself saying a little wistfully:
"One more to go"
One more Priest.
One more Eagle Scout.
One more driver's license.
Wow. Where did the time go?
