The Bingo-Loving Babe that Ran Away

Well... it happened. She ran away for the first time. 7 years old, and not so sure it will be the last. Our little bingo-playing gal just wasn't ready to miss out on this week's big-time affair at the Legion. 

My heart aches for her, but I know she’s learning about life, disappointment, joy, struggle, about others and most importantly, about herself. She is headstrong, funny, beautiful, creative, stubborn. And oh my goodness, how the love flows out of her in exuberant ways! We spoil her with freedom, but how can you harness a free spirit -- and why would you want to?!
