The tribe is once again scattered. Several long journeys across many states have taken place over the past few days as our families make their way back home. Leo and I came to the house this afternoon and began cleaning up and preparing for renters. I found a sillyband on the floor in the kids room. Leo found a few sippy-cup lids. Items of nostalgia, echoes of the tribe gathered. Full of fondness as I rewind my mind over tender, silly, delicious, exciting, precious moments this past week. So many voices and bodies filling the house with life and love. It was absolutely wonderful.
