all that summer needs
Our Summer Fun list hanging on the refrigerator . . .
A day spent searching for thrifted tea cups with the little ones- which apparently don't exist anymore . .
I sewed a bunting. A bunting!
Berries and cream in tiny cups . . .
all in hopes of making the End of Kindergarten tea party celebration the best ever.
Out for dinner of her choice, all dressed up . . .
summer calendar filled with swimming lessons, Bible School, nature camp, art classes . . .
Summertime Board ready on Pinterest . . .
and on the first day of summer vacation she came into the bathroom where I was getting ready,
we sat on the rim of the tub . . .
pulled up our knees .. .
and talked, and talked, . ..
and then she led me on a long bike ride . ..
smiling all the way . . .
and this, I thought, is all that summer needs.
