Emily Hart, Large And In Charge

EMILY IS SPENDING the next three weeks in Germany in charge of a Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp group. She's been on two European tours as a Blue Lake student, and now she's been hired to be a group leader.

Leaving on a Jet Plane.
She called me from Detroit on Sunday, where the band was going through airport customs and security and generally creating havoc as they got ready to fly to Paris.

"Dad," she said, her voice barely audible above the background din, "I'm getting them through security. I am in charge!"

Well. She's always been in charge, whether it's making up the rules of the sock football game on the front lawn or figuring out what to do after getting her master's degree. In the case of the latter, she's decided do a year-long fellowship with the Royal Conservatory in Toronto.

Geesh, are we jealous. Sheryl went as far as sending me a job opening link from the Toronto Star newspaper. Wouldn't it be great to live with your old man in Toronto?

Nah. She'll be fine on her own. After all, she's large and in charge!
