Hey guys! The 8-Year-Old and I are in a roadside hotel in Buellton, CA. We’ve been sucking the marrow out of this trip.Words can’t really capture how I feel right now. It’s been amazing!
Don’t get me wrong, we’ve had our share of annoying 8-Year-Old moments and I had to go in what I call, “Mom mode” but overall this trip is going exactly how I planned.
I was almost brought to tears a few times watching him experiencing things and even now, while he showers, I feel overwhelmed with emotions.
That was us, Easter weekend 2006. We have both changed so much over the past 8 years. He’s growing up into a funny, smart, kind young man and as I’ve gotten older I’m even more motivated to live a conscious, active, accomplished life.
