Even though September just arrived, you can already feel summer transitioning into fall. It is hard to believe that it was only a week ago that my son and our neighbor’s grand daughter were playing out on our street in typical summer fashion. Thankfully they are happy with a bucket full of chalk and a clean street for their blank canvas. Hours are spent drawing funny creatures or hopscotch boards. They play tag with the rest of the kids on the block until they collapse on the ground, sweaty and dirty. These are the moments I treasure and want to capture more than the perfect family portrait because it shows kids doing what they love most…having fun. When winter comes and we are stuck in the house, I will miss the warm summer evenings spent outside having fun with the neighbors.
I hope everyone had a safe and happy labor day!
