The End of Summer...

The school buses are rolling, new backpacks purchased and since my son is all grown up....doing a little bit of reminiscing about those days.  My neighbor's son just started 8th grade and got his braces....those days seem so long ago!  Over the years, on beach vacations, I used to take this photo...my version of a "growth chart" from the little guy first testing the waters (love his little hat!) to the grown man.  It's fun to have this record.

It's never too late to start! There are a few more in the series...but you get the idea. And I thought taking them from the back, as they gaze out at the ocean...just made it a little more unique. I have a friend I've met at a workshop who has a 4 yr old daughter and I was thinking of her when I was doing my "house" page the other day and I thought...how fun it would be to do a "Birthday House"...one house for every year to give to her when she's all grown up....
