Swim goggles

Although we’re back at school, signs of summer vacation are still present in our house.This morning, rays of sunlight illuminated our daughter’s swim goggles, which are still hanging on the back of her chair.

Favorite Photo Friday: family photos

While my husband captures an image of our youngest daughter, our oldest throws in some bunny ears to elicit a smile.

Reflected light at the drawing table

In my constant search for interesting light to photograph, I noticed the window light, reflected beautifully from the white drawing paper to my daughter’s face.

Playing in the new car

Today, the girls and I started our day by blasting the radio and playing in the backseat of the new car. We’re squeezing in fun where we can as summer break comes to an end.

Working together

I enjoyed this moment from the summer. Two sisters, working together, determined to fix a scooter by themselves.

Memories of the playground

This image brings back memories of playing in the playground next to my childhood home with the kids in the neighborhood. So many wonderful memories of playing together for hours, jumping, swinging, tree climbing, bike riding, rollerskating, and going on adventures are flooding to my mind this morning.

I moved away from the neighborhood and my childhood friends long ago, but my memories of those days with friends are still vivid.

This morning, I am thankful that I have recently found and reconnected with an old friend; I am truly enjoying sharing some of our favorite childhood memories and catching up with each other!
