No Regrets

Our postcard home...wish you were here!

And so our vacation comes to a close, a week of no regrets. I asked everyone over breakfast this morning to give me their top three highlights for the week and this is what I got. As I listened to Chris, Luke, and Tristan, I realized I was lucky to get more than a grunt…its just where they are right now.  And where they are has been a treasure to me and to John, their humor, the way they interact as friends, the way they are finding their places in the world. It has been a week I will always remember, perhaps as the best vacation ever. But then, John reminded me that always say that after a week on the Vineyard.

So here goes with the top threefrom each of us:

Luke

  1. Catching the big fish
  2. The bike ride to Vineyard Haven the first time
  3. Watching Donny Darko

Tristan

  1. Watching Donny Darko
  2. Swimming across the pond with John
  3. Blocking the girls in the parade

Chris

  1. Sleeping
  2. Getting a bigger piece of pie than Tristan
  3. Never riding shaft seat in the truck

John

  1. Watching the boys walking down the beach together
  2. Luke’s face after he caught the fish
  3. Fishing off the jetty in Menemsha in the morning

Tracey

  1. Reading on the beach
  2. Slowing down and being with my family
  3. Watching Tristan, Luke and Chris together

It is hard to capture the week in words. We have been blessed. A couple of parting photos and that will bring this blog to a close…until next year!
