I am a little behind on my “Tbt” posts but still determined to keep up. These photos are from 3 summers ago. I remember the day clearly. It was extremely hot and humid. My absolute favorite kind of weather. The kids were having the best time eating ice cream and staying cool with the water hose. I love all the joy kids find in simple every day pleasures. They have taught me so often to slow down and enjoy each moment. every day is a gift. Looking back at all the memories we have made so far always leaves a bit of an ache in my heart but also makes me excited for all the memories we have yet to make. Today Finn is 5 and Sophia’s last day of 2nd grade. One of my favorites saying is “The days are long but the years are short.” Amen to that.
