Usually I don't love how fast Grace is growing up. But today I LOVED 8 years old! At eight, an adult only needs to be present at the waterpark (as opposed to within arm's reach, in the water). Since Grace and McKenna are both strong swimmers - and they promised to stay together and check in with me - I let them do their thing and I got to actually READ A BOOK!
I have a feeling we will be inviting friends to join us many times this summer!
