Summer under the walnut tree

Summer is nearly over, and I'm having a hard time with it.

It went too fast.

Soon we'll switch from the hectic (fun) of daily play dates to the hectic (work) of deadlines and homework. I'm trying to have a good attitude about it.

We never picnicked or read books once under the walnut tree this summer. Until today.

under the walnut tree


she's almost eleven

suddenly this blanket seems too small; they grow so fast

camera shy

that girl

fence climbing

this sky

feels like fall

this is the life

Slowing down to savor every last breath of fun this summer ...
