I counted today and there are 25 days left of my summer.
I go back to work on August 6th.
By then I will be ready, but just now I crave 25 more days just like the ones I've enjoyed so far.
I've been spending my days with a girl who most often smiles just like that.^
We swim and play volleyball.
We read and write and have lots and lots of playdates.
We laugh and chat and cook and watch old episodes of Chopped.
Sloane has grown up a lot this summer.
Our time together is often more like two girlfriends than parent and child.
She's not a teenager yet, but I can see it from here.
And, you know what?
It's going to be great!
