There She Goes

On the Bus again
Originally uploaded by Darrell
It seems like my 16-year-old is never home. Among school, community theater, work and social obligations we hardly see her. She's also a veteran of the bus. This photo was taken a couple of years ago as she was on her way to Atlanta for a musical theater competition.
Saturday, she strapped in for a 16-hour bus ride to Colorado for a week at church camp. She is surrounded by friends but that's still a long, long way.
Her brother, a recent high school graduate is staying close to home for college. I suspect we may actually see more of him than her in the months ahead.
Two years from now, I'm guessing she'll be long gone.

You sound kind of wistful...I guess it's hard to make the transition to empty nesters. Hang in there!

My affection for my daughter and her freinds is no secret. They bring a lot of life to this house.

Hi there, I'm interested in purchasing a print of the photo you have of the cable bridge at night. Is that a possibility?
