Life’s like this. The comings and goings as our children grow up and move on leaving us to embrace the present with a full heart even when they are off doing their own thing. I love having photos around to remind me of the fun we have when my daughter is home, so the day before she went back to college I asked her if she would once again give me just a few minutes outside with the dogs. After the usual running around we attempted to gather them together in one spot where I knew the light was good. Baxter was cooperative as he always associates my camera with cookies, but Miley is camera shy and it was quite a mess trying to get her to even look. Here are a few of those in-between moments that once again tell the real story!
