I feel as though I just came back from a week at camp..which, in theory, I guess is true. I shed some tears over my not-so-thrilling Denny's dinner tonight, and felt blue most of the evening. that sort of "I don't want it to be over" feeling of loss overwhelming me somewhat. The last 5 days we have all spent together as a family clan...all my sibs and their significants, complete with 5 nephews total and my dad and and step mom in Red Lodge,Montana. beautiful little town, perfect weather, always enough going on, or little breaks to take, for it to be an incredible time of Clan connection. I guess i am just so very aware of how precious and rare this time is. I am so thankful for a family that can hang out at a KOA campground, and aside from the usual squabbles, genuinely love each other's company.

So here we sit in dimly lit "Days Inn" in the smack dab middle of Montana, Finn having finally sillied himself to sleep, and with real sadness, but gratitude, think the evening away
