Our summer vacation has come to an end.
Oh Boy, has it been a hot week here at The Sunny House… sometimes you just have to make your own rain to dance in.
And, sometimes, there’s no one to play with… so playing with the dog will do just fine.
Kitty and I came to an agreement… I’d get her new watercolor paints and brushes and paper and she’d paint me a picture. Her first commission.
Teddy started First Grade… and I’m brimming with gratitude. My Mama’s-heart is full. You know that anxious feeling of watching your baby go off to his first full day of First Grade. You hope like mad that he’ll love it. You want him to do well AND be happy. You want him to love learning.
Well… success. Teddy jumped into the car at pick-up and exclaimed with such contagious enthusiasm that he “LOVES First Grade!” When I asked why, he replied that he had learned the coolest thing… he had learned how to make his OWN jump rope.
Now, THAT’S what First Grade is all about.
To help me cherish every little moment, I post a portrait of us each week. A photo of us doing every-day-little-things that I know I will miss in the years to come. When I’m missing these sweet times, I’ll come back and see that I did cherish them. I did drink them in and I did know how special it all was.
Here’s to these special, happy, days… all of them.
Here are the previous Portraits of Us.
Blessings and magic,
