"Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood."  ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

we just finished our homeschooling for the school year.   our days are usually very relaxed and we spend a lot of time outside daily, but there is something unique about summer days that i love.   this month i took pictures from a few days instead of just one.   as i looked through each of them, i could feel the freedom of summer.  it's really such a special time of the year.

this is summer.
