Today Ariel is back to school for a couple more weeks before her winter break begins. Peter is off on a business trip for a couple of days. Right now I sent Peter and the girls out to have a breakfast at our favorite breakfast place and give the girls some time to be with just their dad. Peter and I are firm believers in giving our children time with a parent without the other one around all the time. It builds the relationship and there is less of a freak out when one parent does go away for a bit.
Today for me is finishing up a commissioned piece and packing up another to its new owners. Then it is onto the next thing that I need to do.
The parade was nice to walk in all be it a little on the windy side. It was only when the wind was blowing that we really felt the cold. Caroline had a great time marching with her fellow girl scouts. And they got to carry their troop banner, which has the names of the girls on it and faces that they made to look like themselves.
Caroline’s birthday party is in a week. We need to get a final head count on that. She is looking forward to it. Then in a week and a half she turns 10. Hard as it is for me to wrap my brain around that concept, it will be happening. As Caroline puts it, these are her last days of being in single digits. And all I can think is where has the time gone?
I am grateful for all the time I have spent with my daughter so far.
