True silence is the rest of the mind; it is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment. ~William Penn
The girls went to camp yesterday and will be there until Friday. I do miss them, but right now I'm enjoying the peace and quiet. This is the first time (since I've been home from work) that they've been gone at the same time, so it's a new thing for me to be truly ALONE in my house for any length of time. It is also the longest either of them have been away from home... ever. Hannah was a little worried about leaving me yesterday, but when we dropped her off, she was excited about all the fun activities they will be able to do (horseback riding, archery, kayaks, canoes, water sports, etc.). I'm sure they will have a great time and have probably already forgotten all about me!
