“I’ll Follow the Sun” (Good Fridays!)
It was a bittersweet week. Anna, Luke’s nanny and the love of his young life, moved on with her bad self to Israel. She came to us at the end of our first year with diabetes. We were emotionally and physically raw from a grueling year, and she was raw from a car accident that kept her and her mother visiting doctors into the winter.
Somehow, all that rawness got knit up over the year. Anna’s favorite song is an old Beattles favorite, “I’ll Follow the Sun,” and we didn’t realize how apt that was going to be. (Note to self: do not tell new nanny how great it is to live abroad while you’re young.) Thanks for everything, Anna – you are a lovely, lovely human being. And BTW – Luke approves of the new boyfriend.
The week also included Mom’s (amazing-as-always) apple pie. Do not stick your hand into this group – it might get taken off.
And finally – I love living in an area where we can walk to everything, and we managed to hit many favorites one sunny day last weekend – a flea market in the Century Ballroom, ice cream at Molly Moon’s, and playground at Cal Anderson park. “You’re going to move to the east side [suburbs], right?” Mom had remarked when I was pregnant. Nope, not just yet…
