The insects are still performing “Summer’s Greatest Hits!” from the tall grass outside our sliding door but the pool is covered and school has started and the days grow shorter. I need one last look at the green, summer grass before it is silenced by a thick coat of autumn leaves.
I’m also enjoying the opportunity to revisit snaps of one adorable baby girl in and around the forever house her parents have been working on since before their wedding. (Remember these guys?) Baby Phoebe, eleven months here, played hard both inside and out before it was time to wind down, read The Giving Tree and sack out in her parents’ arms. Carrie and Josh are exactly the playful, loving parents that I knew they would be and sweet Phoebe is… as both the pillow on the bench below and the song that played during C&J’s first dance as husband and wife suggest… the luckiest.
