Almost Summer

It is almost summer, the season where I hope to write more and teach the children how to cook and clean for themselves. But it is not quite summer yet, so I leave you only this photo which captured a tender family moment when one of my aunts said, "Someone get that homeless girl out of the picture." There is nothing funny about being homeless, so I should just keep the moment to myself. But I share it as a symbol of my summer dream of ill-dressed and seldom-bathed children running beneath a forest canopy looking for slugs. Here's to dirt, sunshine, and so much time with the babies I go cross-eyed.

  1. Yes, you're right. There is nothing funny about being homeless, but saying what you said IS funny and I will continue to laugh about it all day : )
    When I was gone this past weekend, Dan reported to me that he is quite incapable of piggy-tailing the little one's hair and she spent most of the weekend looking homeless. I'm only dissapointed that he preserved no photographic evidence to prove his point.
