Southern California serving hot Santa Ana winds for Thanksgiving weekend.
Our first Thanksgiving in Santa Ana, and we got to spend it with our family.

On the other side (the side I was) I saw a group of other older kids with a young woman (almost 13, I guess…no way I was older than her).
I said to her, “Is this how you feel when you’re with older children?”
Her reply was, “I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve tried to teach them how to be grown
