A series of moments from the second half of June.
flowers from the yard and foraging with Gigi
red clover, nettles, raspberry leaves, pineapple weed, rose petals and wild mint
for a fragrant, mineral-rich tea
Sylvia's first day of baseball practice
Camille's new summertime look
Camille spends a lot of time with her friends, walking to the community pool, playing Minecraft, getting dropped off at the roller rink, singing karaoke at the community rec center. She's growing up and enjoying a bit more independence these days. She'll be twelve this summer, and she flip flops between being a thoughtful, responsible, young woman and a playful, silly girl. I love both aspects of her.
Can you tell she loves her new do?

the community pool with Papa
This man is my rock. We have been together for half of my life at this point and we're not sick of each other yet, so I think that bodes well for our future. :)
veggies and potatoes, ready for the grill
in my weedy garden: lamb's quarters and red amaranth
