summertime

It's that fireweed time of year, the time I first realize that summer is slipping by, the days are only going to get shorter. Best to savor every moment.





I think this photo is absolutely priceless. Calvin, on the right, is giving me the "okay Mom, I see you but I'm not supposed to look like I do" look. His two flag bearing friends in the middle had some 12 year old goofy look thing going on. And Floridacracker, this photo does not show it very well, but the flag at the right is indeed the banner of Florida. I guess because the band has played at Disney World, they earned it. :)

Gee, Deb...I swear I can hear the crickets, feel the sun on my back, and smell the close,yet dry heat of summer in that one picture of tall grasses and evergreens...it instantly took me back to my life outside of Denham...thanks for the memories!

Love the pic of Sally patrolling the pondling.

Lynne- yes fireweed already...I know!

Cindy M- Every moment is savorable...and you are surely an inspiration to me in that. :)

Kathy- I'm glad you liked that picture.

Jayne- I think he likes marching and I enjoy watching him and the rest of the band out there.

FC- So far I am totally impressed at the quality of the band program at our small school.

And, Sally has been quite the aquatic mammal these days, when the kids are at the pond two or three times a day.
