Harvest: "That was a bad idea", he says once the morphine settled in. 

My buddy is broken, but mending now. A clean break to the wrist yesterday. After taking a daring jump from a picnic table to a pole on Monday morning, this little dude has had all the royal treatment a 7 1/2 yr old could dream up. Ice cream, endless time on the IPad, & choice movies. 

My favorite quote from the last 24 hours? Waking from the sedative - 

Me: Harv, do you know where you are?

Harvey: I'm all over the place.

Henri: loads of character piling up by the minute with this one. Loves to ignore my "walk!" & "slow down!" pleas while we round up the crew from summer evening swims.

Liberty: last day at the beach. After a much needed vacation, this darling said a blissful goodbye to the coastal vegetation, salty air & rich natural history of Edisto, South Carolina.

Pip: finds ease in his debut role as Micheal. He really is quite a delight on the stage. 

The children on our block, altogether 14, put together Peter Pan & Wendy the musical, in a weekend. The performance in our backyard kept the audience of 20 or so on the edge of our seats. Between Captain Hook's hook slipping off in mid line, our potty training 2 year old's decision to urinate from the crow's nest of the play fort during the flight to Neverland musical number & the wine flow amongst the adults, we were all stitches by the time end. 

Summer presents an endless supply of time for the imagination to create & wonder. I love the pleasure on Pip's face above. He certainly found his place this glorious day.
