not cancer (volume 7). summer.

happy summering everyone. i hope you’re squeezing all there is out of these beautiful days.  i’m thankful for all the time i’m getting to spend in illinois and soon ohio with family and friends–bbq’ing, catching up with old friends and new friends, laughing, crying, chasing around 2 year olds, going to the city park and remembering the dropped stomach feeling when you swing really high, picnics, fresh cut flowers, my grandpa’s stories that seem to be embellishing over time, fields of tall corn, frozen custard, summer rain with the windows open, big ripe tomatoes, stag beer, bikes with streamers coming out of the handle bars, the smell of freshly cut grass, finding frogs and bunnies and snakeskins in the yard, reading on the porch swing, sidewalk chalk, and all other things summer.

as well, as the summer solstice is now way past us, we can say goodbye to these little kinders who are moving on to first grade. and thank mrs. zuber for their company this past year.
