Things change. Kids grow up and are given permission to go on their own. The girls will often bike down the road to see who is around swimming. Sometimes little guy and I go to the park alone, but soon some of our friends will show up and join us. We watch for Dad to row around the river mouth at the end of his fishing trip. He can see and hear us from there and comes down to join us. It's hard to remember those winter days with 5' of snow and 9 degrees! What a wonderful life here in Stehekin.
