These pictures, I think, summarize my world these days. There is ballet (always), and new additions to the farm (kittens!), and flowers - oh so many flowers. Gladiolas and sunflowers and calendula and zinnias and oh my goodness, did you see that the tansy is blooming? Right outside my kitchen door. It's my favorite.
This weekend I put together our fall schedule of classes and activities. It's a full schedule, as seems impossible to avoid these days. As they grow, so do their passions and the time needed to commit to those passions. It's all good - a pleasure, really - to watch it all unfold, to watch them become more of themselves with each passing year. But the days and nights will be full, and I'm not quite ready for that. There is a whole lot more summer to be had. With the last weeks of this season upon us, we are all diving into summer as best we can. Summer camps continue, backyard summer fun is the agenda for each day, and I have vowed to say yes to the lake and the ocean whenever it's even remotely possible. We are all truly loving every moment of these August days.
I wish you a lovely start to your week, friends!
