Wringing Summer

By Saturday morning, the rain had given way to sunshine and we brought towels to wipe off the playground equipment.

Baby Kaya is 15-months-old, and she’s like a different child every time we see her – she’s growing and changing so quickly now.

We visited our local library to see the little art gallery that Thea’s teachers had put together. Last week, the pre-K summer camp studied Japan and did art camp every day. One might think this ‘Theodora Robinson’ acrylic painting has something to do with cherry blossoms, but the official title appears to be Rainbow Sparkly Finn.

I think she got tired of posing for me.

At home, we set up our own art gallery.

Thea lost her second baby tooth, also on the bottom and with a grown up tooth already growing in behind it. The tooth fairy left her four quarters and she was thrilled: “Mom! She only left me a paper dollar the first time, but now I have COINS!”

We went to ZooAmerica and found some fish in the bear habitat.

Growing every day but the bears are still bigger.

Mary came to visit and play dress-up.

She and her beau, Mitch entertained Finn and Thea all afternoon.

And… success! Finn and Thea were totally wiped out at the end of the day.

Even so, I found Finn off by himself, concentrating really hard on his pedaling.

He wondered aloud why he couldn’t quite get the hang of it.

Luckily, we still have half-a-summer and really no deadline to keep trying!
