A Pace By Any Other Name...

"Do you have your W2P?" I ask from the driver's seat as kiddo jumps onto the curb.

"Water, watch, phone...yup, I have them!" he assures me, flicking his wrist, patting his side and then turning around to show me the water bottle in his backpack pocket.

"Okay, have a good class! I'll be waiting in the parking lot when you're done."

We briefly touch fingers in goodbye before he shuts the minivan door, and I watch him walk up to the Physical Sciences building, shoulders slightly hunched from the weight of his backpack, but steps springy and confident. He likes where he is going to and it shows.

Although he has been doing this for two semesters now, I still smile wistfully at my 12-year-old's receding back before turning into the parking lot to find a spot where I will spend the next 90 minutes reading a novel, answering emails, researching new books and/or planning what to cook for dinner while he attends his engineering physics lecture at the community college.

Why, Hello 2015!

You sort of snuck up on me didn't you? 2014 was such a bittersweet year. Worldwide, there was so much sadness and fear and tragedy, but also little pockets of joy and recovery. For us personally, 2014 was a year of growth for kiddo, a year of shedding skin for me, and general mayhem and mischief overall. :)

I've been planning to write an update of our journey but just haven't found the mood (time was not the issue). Hopefully, soon. Till then...my thanks to everyone who comes here to read my few posts. I wish you all the very best life has to offer in the new year!
