The Good Old Days

Gracie's a nostalgic l'il thing, often talking of 'the good old days' - before she started school, when her days were with me and Annelie and Will, who often worked in the evenings so he was home with us during the day.

For months Gracie's been talking about how excited she is for summer vacation so things can be as they were before. She definitely takes after her dad and me - we're always talking about our dating days, and the days when the girls were babies and toddlers.

And looking through old family photos, with Beirut's Postcards From Italy playing in the background to add to the nostalgic mood, is always favorite past time. (Love, love this song and video)



Well, it's summer vacation now, and yesterday was a beautiful day by West Texas's standards - only in the 90's - so Will and I decided a nature hike with the girls would be just the thing to add to the memory collection.







We had a fun day - and wouldn't you know it, when we got home Gracie gave me a huge hug and announced that her days were finally just like the good old days again.

Well, Gracie, you're in luck - Summer vacation is three LOOOOONG months, though I'm hoping by the end of it, you'll be desperate for the good old days of school to start.

I know I will!

But in the meantime, it's awesome having more adventures to look fondly back at!

xoxo,

How funny that she's that nostaligic at 6 :) You guys are brave, we've been avoiding outside because it's just TOO HOT. Whatever can't be accomplished before noon has to wait until after dinner. I wonder how long it will be before you are ready for summer to be over? Hee hee. Still, a nature hike does sound super fun!

I echo Kristen's sentiment - sweetest family ever! And *only* in the 90's? I'm dying of heat stroke just thinking of that. Is Will actually wearing a jacket in one of those photos??
