I could scarcely muster a smile this morning though, and as I left, I wished the walk from Laura's front door to the driveway would never end. We've been all over the world this year, but we always had one another to come home to.
The tears probably did nothing to ameliorate my stye, and even the hot pink rain boots I dragged to the counter at Target did not serve to make my day less grey. I devoured a Caesar salad at Wendy's before hiding in my bed for a few hours in the afternoon.
We woke up to Latin! Priya and I learned participles, infinitives, subjunctive forms, and two new subjunctive uses this evening. Priya says "I love Latin" at least once a day -- what a Gill. For the first time, she's had "enough Latin for one day," so she's abandoned the story I assigned her to translate, and we're figuring out what to do for dinner.
May the world bless you, Laura Kambourian, with the most beautiful next stage of your life imaginable. Te quiero, chica.
