Fun and Family!
I got back from visiting family in South Dakota. It was great to see people and awesome to spend time with everyone. We didn’t do anything particularly touristy or super-exciting sounding, but I enjoyed the little things like playing board games and walking in the park. My nieces frequently ganged up to tickle me, but I gave as good as I got.
It wasn’t all fun and games. With my mom being out of her routine, it was painfully obvious how her physical health and memory have declined. My sister and I are trying to figure out what’s best.
So try to be good to the people in your life. Also, change happens, but change isn’t bad. I went with one niece to tour a local college… she’s going to be applying to several this fall. One part of her life is ending, but new adventures will begin.
