Dripping Wet Days

There are lots of days when I take NO pictures at all.  I think about how great it would be if I could capture each moment on film.
I know I am going to forget lots of these moments.  I will forget that Priscilla ran over to me covered in grass and dripping wet and needing a hug.
I have already forgotten how hard it was when we first moved here.  How much these little people have grown up...and so has their mama!
I sometimes have to stop and take the time to S....L...O...W  down and remember that I will forget....
There are some things I will be glad to forget...like diapers and ear aches..fighting over whose turn it is.
I don't want to forget the little things, like the faces Lucy makes when she has to pee-pee, the power Priscilla feels when she has something that she knows Lucy wants...
How do you remember all these sweet moments?  Each hot, dripping wet minute????
Summer will end all to soon. I know the new school year is just around the corner and want to linger in summer as best I can.
I want to enjoy the rainy afternoons, the mid day naps that I know will not last forever, movies in the afternoon, exhausted kids who cuddle in bed after baths with a cozy blanket never having enough room.
Wishing you all a very dripping wet, pool filled summer!!


  1. I am really enjoying the blog and all the photos. You take beautiful photos of the most ordinary moments. Now today I can almost feel those wet bathing suits and damp hugs from my own children so long ago.

  2. Thanks Aunt Jeanne!! I love looking at the pictures when I am done and getting to soak it all in for a 2nd time. Thanks for reading!

  3. Super post, Lisa. Again. Makes me want to jump right in! Also, love the picture of Molly and Lucy.

  4. Lisa, Just a word of caution . . . Don't allow your kids to drink from the garden hoses. There may be lead in the connectors and the brass ends and drinking from these can lead to lead poisoning.

    Take care, Kathy

  5. Hey lisa I love all the pictures! It reminds me of the summers that I had growing up and the kind I want for my own kids to remember! I was reading your other stuff about homeschooling and I have to say I believe that one of the hardest things about being a parent is feeling secure and confident about decisions you make that may be different from other parents. I struggle all the time with trying not to judge anyone else because I know the feeling of being on the other end. I guess in the end you should always try and make the choice that is best for your family and not what the "majority" is doing. You are a great mom!!
