He started
[big kid] day camp!

You know, the kind where he gets on a big yellow school bus and rides off to fun parks and places...

{without me along-side him}

He was giddy at seeing the bus ready for him to board.

And he didn't even blink an eye.

His first big field trip - to the Long Beach for a guided boat tour around the harbor!
Next week - a trip to the California Science Center for a scavenger hunt.

{I blinked several times realizing just how fast the last five years have gone.}


He also started swim lessons in the morning before camp, five days a week. Phew, what a schedule! I'm even tired at the end of each day. We're busier now then we were during in the school year!

(at least the karate lessons are over with for a while, we were doing those 3x a week through the month of June...)




the living ain't so easy.

Take it away Ella!

Well, I can always fantasize about lazy summer days, drinking iced tea and cool lemonade; but heck, even the weather hasn't been agreeable - we've had 65 degree days for the last couple weeks. That's not Summer.

Harrison asked his dad the other day, "Why is it so cold in the Summer?"

That's what we want to know.

We had a slow start to summer too -- but boy is it here now.

The second shot is magnificent -- well done!

Congrats to him and his new adventures! Summer was cool and wet, but the last several days have been WAY hot!

No, no, NO. That is absolutely NOT allowed. A school bus? No mama? No way. I do not like this one little bit.

Oh they grow up too fast. And so it begins...schedules and taxi servicing and watching them ride away for the day. Sigh. But oh, how you will love watching him grow up with those adventures!!

Summer isn't too lazy around here either, but it's FUN!! :)

P.S. I so love the way you didn't just take a picture of the bus but pieces of the bus. Very cool.
