I took Joanna on a three-day road trip through the Southwest last November for her twelfth birthday. We met up with some of Peter’s family in Zion, but for the most part it was just the two of us for endless miles of open road – listening to music, telling stories, basking in stretches of beautiful silence, and honestly just getting to know each other all over again in this new season of life. Parenting a pre-teen is both harder and more rewarding than I could have imagined. I love the way our friendship is changing and┬ádeveloping in new ways all the time… I hope this trip was something she’ll treasure forever; I know I will.
