From Lelly - "our routines can seem out-of-whack in the summer and it's more important than ever that we funnel our energy into the hearts of our families. not so easy to do when there are more snacks to prepare, more laundry to do, more trips to the store/movies/museums/gas station... we must strike a balance between pool time, library time, travel time and quiet time!! to help channel our personal chi, let's take time this month to focus on the 5 elements of summer: sun, water, shade, grass and ice cream!!
these can be as easy or as challenging as you want them to be...just get out there and take some pictures!!"
- july 1 - sun
- july 8 - water
- july 15 - shade
- july 22 - grass
- july 29 - ice cream
I didn't know that with a little planning ahead I could have done this month's SPT with one stop. We took the kids here the other evening.
We had plenty of sun, water and grass-- and even ducks.
Thankfully along the way there were some of these.
The shade was a welcome break from the hot summer evening.
Next time we need to remember to bring the ice cream!
