Perhaps you remember that Swim Girl left the nest again last November to volunteer with Americorps/Vista. We have missed her, but since she is fairly close we have been able to connect several times.
Now it is Alaska Girl's turn to attempt another flight. She is headed out west. In fact, she and her dad are on their way as I write this. She has a new gig as a cellarer (cellarist?) at a brewery near Big Sky Country. That's about 18 hours by car.
I know that you will find this hard to believe, but I didn't have to help with this one. I didn't help load the car and I'm not driving anybody anywhere. In fact, the only thing I did do is pick up a bicycle from her apartment. I almost feel guilty. Almost.

We will miss the Little Dude. Rach is going with her.

So, to my daughter..." I wish all possible success. You deserve it. Work hard, play hard and do your best. I hope you love it so that we can come out for vacation next summer. Now, I have to go clean your room."
And just in case you all were feeling sorry for me not getting to help her move, don't worry. Swim Girl is moving back in a couple of weeks. I know I can't get out of that one.
|Not the best of Alaska Girl, but you gotta love Rach.|

|Obviously he is thrilled with the accommodations.|
