It also gave us time by ourselves to rediscover the magic that is there for the two of us, and has been all along. This little girl, who now 11 and might object to that description, is now 5'2" tall and about as big around as a stick. She's all personality, all smile, all dimples and an incredible joy to be around.
We, of course, took some photos and Maddie is getting better with the camera--yes, a real camera, not a phone--each time I see her. I fully expect she'll be quite accomplished in short order. Here's some of what we shot. At the top is one of my favorite portraits of her, taken at the waterfall at Roaring Run.
