Boys of Summer

I looked at my three boys and thought about how fast they were growing.  It seems that every day they look different.  I tell them to “stop growing” and they laugh at me.   I threaten to stop feeding them but we all know that’s never going to happen.

I thought about this summer and how it will be the last summer with just three boys.  I thought about how, in just a couple of months, I will have two full time students taking the bus every day.

I decided to celebrate my three boys just as they are right now.  Right at this very moment in time.  I decided to do some portraits, just for them, so they could hopefully remember what it was like to run through a field with their brothers.  I want them to remember what it was like to eat lollipops together and get sticky from head to toe.

I want them to know how beautiful they are.

I want them to know that I will always see them with great wonder.

I want them to know that they are loved beyond reason.

Many thanks to my Mom who helped with the coordination and boy-wrangling for this production.  She is always there for me!

This is a  slideshow I made from our day.

So here’s to savoring our youth.  And here’s to savoring summer days with our families.
