I am waiting for my daughter Amanda today. She is coming in from Lansing, and we are going to make the drive to the family compound in Ohio today, returning tomorrow. Iíve spent most of the morning getting ready, thinking about her arrival. She will come through the new door I suppose. I wonít know she is here until she is coming up the stairs though. Each child has a different mode of arrival. Amanda is the stealthiest of the four. She will be leaving for Kansas August 7. This will be her last trip to Ohio for several years.
