One of the things I love most about the beach is taking walks down the shoreline. While walking yesterday with Emily it struck me –– in 7 years Emily will graduate from high school and leave our little nest. I only have 7 more summers that we may be able to take these walks. After then I can only hope that we are still cool enough to vacation with.
We found out last night that the boy in the house next to us "thinks Emily Jacobs is cute". Will she have summer romances like Sandy and Danny in Grease? Will this place be the place she has her first kiss? Sigh... she is just getting too old. Now I know what my parents meant when they said enjoy every minute. Life goes by too fast.
