these past few days we've spent a lot of time being summer
the children have woken later than usual
some of us have stayed in pajamas until lunchtime
board games played and forts built
fresh, local food collected from the farmers market
squash blossoms, uh-huh
we've hit the pool every day for an afternoon cool down
there are some of us, okay all of us, who had frozen yogurt before lunch...a few times
tomatoes plants watered and smiled at
flip flops worn and discarded by the door all day
new and old books read
knitting, though it happens less these days, did include some casting on for a new project
we officially started our summer fun which I'll tell you about soon
laughter, squabbles and a few naps have been thrown in for good measure
yes, we're being summer, and it feels pretty good!
what about you?
