Tonight's picture was taken in May of 2007. Mattie was headed to his first day of summer camp at his preschool. Mattie LOVED summer camp at Resurrection Children's Center, and I had to laugh because he would enter the camp each day clean, but I would pick him up wet and full of sand. He at times looked like a sandy meatball! Mattie loved running in the water and also playing in the sandbox. I am so glad he had these wonderful, happy, and fun times and adventures. For Mattie, life was too short, so whether we knew it or not, he really had to pack in a full life in only seven years!
Quote of the day: You must learn day by day, year by year, to broaden your horizon. The more things you love, the more you are interested in, the more you enjoy, the more you are indignant about, the more you have left when anything happens. ~ Ethel Barrymore
I am having a slow recovery, and in many ways my illness is a forced break for both Peter and I. We are learning to do very little and just try to take in fresh air, look at the ocean, and rest. I had a bad night of sleep, so I did not have a good start to the day.
