Sunny just got admitted to the college of her dreams, and will be leaving us in the fall. Basketball Girl is about to graduate from eighth grade and go on to high school. I was looking through my photo files to gather some old photos of Basketball Girl to use for her eighth grade graduation project when I came across this happy scene at our favorite tea shop (really should be “shoppe”, because that’s the kind of place it is) in San Francisco. The friends in the photo are the ones Sunny will be seeing a lot of when she moves to Portland, Oregon for college — her family away from home.
This tea party was just two years ago, but it feels like time is speeding up and the girls’ childhood is already receding into distant memory.
