A Real Summer

Our eldest daughter has played competitive soccer for years, which has involved indoor training throughout the winter and summers devoted to team practices, games, and tournaments. Since she starts high school in the fall, she wanted to take this summer off, and our family couldn't be happier about her decision. We actually have time now to do things together, like . . .

. . . skip rocks, and . . .


. . . wade across the river, and . . .


. . . drag sticks along the boardwalk, and . . . 


. . . blow bubbles, and . . .


. . . just hang out.


This is going to be the best summer ever!




Dinner last night: chicken enchiladas, refried beans, corn

Have fun with her. Sounds like a great summer. She'll be grown up before you know it.
