Sometimes we get so caught up in the largeness, the constant pull to now-ness, of these children, that we forget just how small they are.
a trip to Laurelhurst Park involved much tree touching and looking up, up, up.
On Monday, we took our annual trip to the beach for Laurie's birthday. It also happened to be Solstice. We were blessed with a mostly rain-free day, and the boys got to re-discover the sand, the surf, the waves. Having grown up in the salty air of Cape Cod, returns to the coastal waters are refreshing for my very soul. It was a good day.
