I awoke between two kids this morning. Gray explained that he knows if he's near me he won't have bad dreams. Later we said goodbye to our closest friends as they take off for the summer and our schedules disconnect. I think on our travels we'll be able to see them in passing and maybe we'll even work in an overnight or two. We were able to sneak in one last lunch together outside in Old Town for an exceptionally sunny and warm afternoon. Summer is really here and now we are on our own.
