i love summer.

afternoon swims at the lake.
cute brown babies in bathing suits.
boys squirting water guns.

lazy mornings.
no schedules.
candy land, memory, one more book.

plants growing bountifully.
our first cucumbers, scarfed down by ecstatic children.
snap peas, picked and eaten as fast as they can grow.

sitting on the porch watching a thunderstorm roll in.
kids picking blueberries in the rain.
the rhythm of the fun, fast-paced days and the slower, lazy ones.

gosh, i love summer.
