I'm traveling North to the cottage with Jaelyn and Addison tomorrow morning -- leaving at 4 a.m..
We'll enjoy the cottage together for 24 hours before Grandpa & Grandma appear with three favorite cousins in their back seat. Annually they host a big Cousin Retreat sans parents.
Lynn is missing the whole trek because of grad school classes and her job; once the pantheon of cousins arrives, I'm hightailing it into the woods where I'll camp alone for three days.
Can I tell you how great that sounds? (!)
I'll be emerging only to write at the beach or the public library, or maybe for a bit of kayaking.
The blog will obviously be silent during these days -- tho lots of ruminations when I return!
