My family’s annual July 4 week at the lake has come and gone, but Joshua and I have remained behind at the lake for at least another week, perhaps two. Everyone else—including the dog—returned home late yesterday afternoon.
It is peaceful and quiet here, and Josh can study, undisturbed, for his bar exams. I can take care of some things around the house and yard while Josh studies. When Josh needs a break, he and I can walk in the woods or swim.
