Day 7: Pool. Party!

Aug 4, 2015 | 30 Days of Fun, thirty-days projects | 4 comments

I was already excited. Any minute now, and for the first time since Easter weekend, my sweet Eliza would be pulling her little black car into our driveway and parking it.

She’s been a long time gone, you see, due to senior year activities and an intense, 14-week internship at Camp Twin Lakes in Rutledge, Georgia. Her camp experience complete, this Friday she’ll receive a bachelor of science degree in Recreation Therapy and will officially be a graduate of Clemson University.

So I was pacing just a little bit, finding one excuse after another to pass by the big glass doors to look out toward the driveway.

Then came this little gem on my trusty iPhone from my friend and neighbor, the fabulous T. Coles.

Then there was this.



“out back drinking margs!” the caption said


A few minutes passed. Then a few more. Then finally. Finally. FINALLY E landed!

Up for a late afternoon swim at the Coles? I asked.

Sure, she said, her feet barely in the door.

And off we went.

Max in charge.
