I am happy to report that the family has survived two graduations and other end-of-school-year festivities (and stresses). Boys #1 and #2 are gainfully employed for the summer. Boy #3 is hanging with friends and teaching himself to play the guitar (no, I haven't asked him if it's part of some plan to get girls). Boy #4 starts basketball camp next week with his bestie. And I've just become part of the MOST amazing, tiny, heart-filling critique group.
So there's the update along with an apology for my continued sporadic blogging in the coming weeks as I try to finish writing this novel.
Best wishes to you for a summer of sun, fun & beautiful words!
