sing song swing of summer


details are subtle. lawnmower outside. plants need watering. music from the oldest's stereo. exhausted, the middle is up, yawning, waking from a mid-day nap. the youngest, hiding out playing games in his makeshift fort.

it could be a saturday anywhere, but it is a wednesday, entering into august, the sing song swing of summer.


 and the soft melodious song of imagined knights and dragons, dancing in and out of their dreams, helping us cling to these last few weeks before school starts again.


.....i feel like i have been overly absent from this space. but trips are winding down, and there are schedules to begin anew.


but as you know, life starts, and restarts again and again.

  4. Wonderful pictures. The little pieces of summer, to be remembered. Blueberries here too. And long sunny days. Off to the pool this afternoon to cool off. Hope you have a lovely weekend Rebecca.

  5. Perfect timing, we arrived in Denver very late and you have returned. Your photos match your words so perfectly. I love how you have captured the "little" things that make up our days. I could do with a BIG bowl of blueberries today.
    Enjoy these last few weeks!!!!!
