June is busy unfurling: wings, petals, leaves slowly open to the warming summer sunshine. My boys and I are also unfurling into summer: beach towels flying open in the breeze, toes spreading into damp sand, exhausted children loose-limbed in deep afternoon snoozes on the sofa.
For now, the plans, the activities and playdates are on hold. We are simply taking time to unfold from our school-days mindset and relax into the ambiguous days of summer.
three boys huddled around a Beyblade stadium
mandevilla in bloom by the garage
the beauty of the Catholic funeral mass for a two year old boy
time to stare at the clouds
pouring down rain
my son saying he loves cozy days inside
puzzle making with a three year old
molding clay blobs in red, yellow and blue dotting the island
my first freshly made peach pie
root beer floats for my sons
family bike rides at dusk
surf boards poking out of pick-ups and jeeps
curly hair crazy with humidity
