Sweet 16 and on the road soon
Something a little different on the Bus today.
Today is a big day at our house. Our youngest child, and only daughter, is sixteen years old today. We'll have a small celebration as both of her brothers are out of town and she has plans to celebrate with her friends later.
She's growing up. Our daughter has blossomed into an intelligent, caring young woman and I'm as proud as a dad can be.
For the past few months I've been teaching her to drive a car, just as I taught her to ride a bike many years ago. I miss our evening walks together, but I understand that a young lady doesn't want her dad around all of the time. Over the years, she and I have spent many a summer Sunday afternoons sitting in the rocking chairs on the back porch, just listening to music and talking. She's also my canoeing partner on days when the rivers are too low for whitewater and a peaceful paddle on a glassy lake are in order.
Whenever I hear these two Sam Bush songs, favorites of hers, I close my eyes and we are rocking in the cool shade once again.
