Okay, so what is it in the summer that closes my eyes at 9 p.m. Is it summertime or over-sixty-syndrome!!! But I do get up early – so that counts, right? Yesterday morning it was 3 a.m. Today I slept in…5 a.m. Five is the magic number on Friday’s because it’s FIVE MINUTE FRIDAY with Kate. Let’s TRY this. O! Wait! that’s the word prompt…
This is a scanned page from Hannah’s scrapbook – taken probably eight or nine years ago at a street festival we went to every summer when she was growing up. You see Hannah’s parents drove her up here every summer since she was 5 – 1/2 years old. The first summer she stayed 3 weeks and as she grew her weeks here grew. Until she would stay the entire months of June and July. When she was little, that meant day camp while I worked –
Our summers were the best. But, Hannah began her life afraid – she was scared to try new things. Enter Mimi…
Just do it afraid.
Try it Han – you might like it.
Com’on you don’t know unless you TRY.
Every.single.time. She would try it and she would accomplish it. She rappelled walls. She read books. She tubed rivers. She dove off diving boards. She jumped from boats. She was pulled by a tow rope on the back of a boat. She kayaked. She hiked. She bicycled.
She always tries.
She always makes it.
Hannah has taken this characteristic into college. She has done HARD THINGS. But…
She keeps TRYing.
And she keeps accomplishing.
We couldn’t be more proud of her if we TRIED!
This was so easy to write and the time flew by – it brought back so many happy, sometimes TRYing times – but oh so worth it! By the way, Hannah will be 21 January 2018!
