The School Grounds

I will be the first to admit,that when we moved to our current home,I did not like the idea of having the elementary school in our backyard..but through out the years,the path to the school has witnessed these little legs grow..from small to big..
and I am ever so thankful
for every memory shared
on these wonderful school grounds.

On this day..we had no other choice but walk the path and enjoy
Perfect day for bike riding..

and some tire rolling..

and some swing set swinging..

and some treasure hunting..

and some slide diving..

and especially some ..sun catching..

and How I love this corner of the pavilion..It calls to me every time..singing sweetly as it echos the laughter of the children that played within its timbers.

"The Daisy follows soft the Sun"
by Emily Dickinson

The Daisy follows soft the Sun --
And when his golden walk is done --
Sits shyly at his feet --
He -- waking -- finds the flower there --
Wherefore -- Marauder -- art thou here?
Because, Sir, love is sweet!

As Always,
 thank you so much for stopping by

Cat, you really capture those little moments in life that mean so much. I think it was no coincidence that the school is in your backyard... of all people who would come to appreciate that. It was really meant to be. Thanks for sharing your sweet pictures of the kids today....looks like it was a wonderful, sun-shiny kind of day!
