Growing, Growing, Gone

There will be no more Kindergartners in this family. Growing, growing, gone.

We are saying goodbye to a little girl's beloved school tomorrow. Growing, growing, gone.

Another year of teaching-- growing, growing, gone.

But we have seedlings growing in the red wagon-- growing until they are ready to be planted and can withstand the dog.

We have books to read together. . . continuing the adventures of the 6th Harry Potter with a new first grader, wandering through Narnia with the young lady in the family and introducing her to the magical world of Hobbits.

We have sewing, knitting, book-making, gardening, and art projects waiting for our attention.

Happy summer! Until it is gone, too, and a new school year begins.

Poignant... What a week of transitions. Sounds like summer will be a fruitful and fun time, though! What are the seedlings?

Zinnias, sunflowers, and cilantro!

Mmmm, I love cilantro! I'm just learning to grow herbs, and have started with rosemary, lavender, mint and basil. They're all doing well, except I didn't know I was supposed to prune the basil often. Hope it isn't too late! Look forward to seeing y'all on Monday!
