Anna is off to California for the summer. Sigh. She leaves tomorrow afternoon. It was nice to have her here for a few weeks and now I am in denial that I probably won't see her till mid-August. The telephone is just not the same. I have no doubt she will have an awesome time there and be adopted by various people. I know it will be a good experience for her too. Sigh. No doubt it will be a good experience for me too. Do I *have* to have good experiences????
