{ summer epilogue } ~ austin area child photographer

The hot days here in Texas where temperatures reach 106 degrees regularly are my favorite. My body responds to the warmth and somehow I am reminded that I am alive and I feel it in my skin. I want to pause the seasons here for a while.

The girls went school supply shopping this week, it's basically right around the corner. My days of having these fun little ladies around all day are numbered and I am not yet ready to send them back to school for more than half the day. It's so bittersweet, because they too love summer but are anxious for their new school year, each moving into a big new place in their education.

Avery will be in the 7th grade. She loved 6th and embraced theatre arts and drama. This year she will be able to participate in even more because she will be joining as a veteran thespian.

Masyn is headed into the 2nd grade. She is reading and practicing her math skills, I have no doubt she will do well this year, I can see her changing all the time and becoming more gentle and aware of those around her, I think she will make a lot of new friends. Her attention to detail surpasses any I have witnessed and I believe that will aid in her school work.

Evelyn is 5 years old and will have her first year of official schooling this fall, she begins Kindergarden. I am fairly sure that all she is concerned about is her social standing in the class and I don't foresee any problems there except perhaps with her teachers if she gets too distracted from the work. She is a little chatty bug and always having fun, the more structured class that she will be going into might be a very good challenge for her. Hopefully she will learn the perfect balance of school work, talk, play, and rest.

While we still have these hot sunshine days I want to play in the pool, lay around watching movies, and squeeze in as many full days with my bebes as possible. I love summer.

I can't believe how much your girls have changed. They are all so beautiful Is Evelyn really 5? Time flies!

I have loved this summer too. I've been taking it easy and focusing on my kids more. We have done a lot of snuggling under the covers while watching movie after movie. I love it!

I miss talking with you. I hope you are well.

Boo to the heat! You're crazy! I remember having a conversation with you when we were 12 years old about sweat mustaches and how gross they made us feel. I currently have one and it is just AWFUL! Your girls look so sweet. Every time I see your photos it reminds me that I don't take enough pictures of my own pretty little monsters!
