August 2013. Reflecting on summer's end, a vacation, starting school and another dog...

This summer it rained and rained and our family was apart more than usual.  Trip stayed away at two church camps.  Will went to idyllwild on his own.  Charles slept up at the dorms, with both boys, with one, and without.  I was worried sometimes.  Trip got overheated and we went to the Er.  We trapped a bat in our bedroom.  Trip started middle school.  We got a new dog.  The neighbor's house is being demolished.   Lealand Lane has been used for a detour for two months.  Charles' team won their first game of the year.  We have really been topsy turvy, but, happy.   Below:  the cousins play for a day at the beach. 

From 'To A Young Son' by Julia Johnson Davis

In your face I sometimes see
Shadowings of the man to be,
And eager, dream of what my son
Will be in twenty years and one.

But when you are to manhood grown
And all your manhood ways are known,
Then shall I, wistful, try to trace
The child you once were in your face?

MY LITTLE ONE - By Tennessee Williams

My little one whose tongue is dumb, whose fingers cannot hold to things, who is so mercilessly young, he leaps upon the instant things, I hold him not.

Indeed, who could? He runs into the burning wood. Follow, follow if you can! He will come out grown to a man and not remember whom he kissed, who caught him by the slender wrist and bound him by a tender yoke which, understanding not, he broke.


We are so very glad that you are happy...
long may you keep so, my dear boy...
May you go on as well
as you have begun.
- Charles Darwin
