Short memo from a summer vacation.

Remember to just enjoy it--the five children playing with blocks and hiding and emerging and explaining MineCraft to each other and laughing. It's figuring out what's for dinner in the midst of it. It's meeting at the In-N-Out a half a mile away, and drinking a chocolate shake and sharing the french fries. And reading all The Stupids books before bedtime, and watching an episode of Shaun the Sheep.

It's singing all the songs to two grandsons that you used to sing to your own children.

It's listening to their breathing as it evens and slows.

It's thinking about tomorrow's moments, tomorrow's dinner, tomorrow's swimming expedition. Tomorrow's breakfast and library and lunch.

And when it's time for bed, just fall into it. Just fall into it, and just enjoy it again tomorrow.
