Behold! Jane's beautiful mission photos!
I noticed a giant group of seagulls near the shore.
They'd get spooked occasionally, or something would happen,
fly away, circle the lake, and come right back.
It felt a little symbolic to me that Jane
(and Claire, and all my children, really)
They will fly away someday and stretch their wings, but they'll return home.
Then I practically made Jane run through the crowd of the noisy birds.
She was hesitant, but she did it!
It will be one of my core memories forever!
