The summer heat is pounding hard on the dry parched earth we call home.
The ground beneath our toes burns to the touch.
The garden almost done, barely hanging on
Taylor built the boys a tin foil river for the day.
The hours passed as they floated their men down.
I believe her mama is rubbing off on her.
She is always coming up with neat things to do with the kids
and I'm so thankful that one day she will share these
same things with her kids.
Channie and the girls stay in their pajamas all day.
Playing babies or blocks. They sit next to each other when there
is plenty of open chairs. Sharing a small space that only sisters
Cullen playing in the bathtub until I make him get out. The water long cold. He plays and
cools off from a hot day outside.
The girls sitting in a sink full of warm coconut lavender water while Taylor and I cook.
Pulling them out and wrapping them up in a towel and smelling their skin.
Now this really melts their mama's heart<3
Yes, the heat is out there, but we're in here.
Together for the day.
I'm so thankful for the coolness of my air
and the water that fills my tubs and sinks.
I'm thankful for these long summer days that I think will
never end, but soon enough the fall wind will show herself
and these days will be gone forever, so I enjoy them now.
