Celebrating with Ruth Ayres at Discover Play Build. and connecting with others who share their celebrations, too. It's a joy to read everyone's words of celebration.
I planned to write last Sunday (my first day at home) about our family trip to Captiva, but I rose on Sunday to the anguish of Orlando. I didn't write this week except posting book reviews until Friday brought a gift from a friend, and I realized that more than ever we must hold dear the ordinary things that make our lives extraordinary. Here are pictures from our wonderful time together. The days filled with sand and sea, storms and play, loving family.
