Skate or Die

Today Amelia and her mom
were walking down the street
and a guy went by on a skateboard.
Amelia explained, "Look mama,
he's pretending he's a car!"

Really, this is what the entire summer should be about.
These last days of August were a time to do very little
and contemplate the changes that our lives in this family
will be making this fall. It's replenishing just to be outside
in the sun and near the water for a week. It's reinvigorating
after months in a cubicle staring at a computer monitor.
Amelia could've spent the entire week at the beach in the water.
Our dear friends the Arnolds lent us their upper Michigan
cottage for the week and to them we our eternally grateful.
