When you’re the main photographer in a family, you’re often not in many of the shots that are taken to record that family’s adventures. I’m so glad that Grandma Beverly handed the camera to Grandpa Roger a few times during out kids’ visit earlier in the month so her presence could be recorded as well. Yes, there is a Grandma, and here she is!
I’m nearly done with this series, but I have a feeling Grandma Beverly is going to keep me well-stocked with photos this summer. Our older daughter’s visit starts tonight, and then a week down the road, our oldest son will have his turn.
The summer is humming along nicely. Many wonderful experiences have been had in this first full month of it. Last night the three youngest kids and I went to Island Park in Fargo at dusk and enjoyed free pop, popcorn and a movie on a hill with others in the community. It reminded me of the old drive-in theatre days and was such fun.
Even without a major vacation in store, I think this is one of my favorite summers in a long time so far. That might have something to do with the fact that I am working hard at keeping a healthy balance, which is always a tough thing when the kids are all home. These out-of-town trips our kids are enjoying have helped, too.
Q 4 U: What have you been doing this summer to stay healthy and more fully embrace the season?
