You Capture : Ordinary Moments


We are settling into our new school routine.
My little first grader has homework for what
feels like the first time.

Although, I have to drag him away
from relaxing after school,
I love watching him sit and work intently on his assignments.


I feel privileged to get a little glimpse
of all the new things his little brain is learning.

These ordinary moments are so important.
They are shaping who he will become.

Last night,
after homework was completed
and dinner had been scarfed down,
the boys begged to have "bath time" in the kiddie pool.


So we grabbed the last bit of evening sun
and soaked up a late summer splash for bath night on the porch.

The air is getting cooler...just a bit.
Bath time in the pool
won't be possible in a short time
as fall settles in.


We have to bask in
this last bit of summer sun.

I love these little glimpses! We start school on Monday but have had one heck of a week with an earthquake and now hurricane!

I love the last shot of the pool and Koen! I think backyard pools are the best invention ever!
