High Summer

Maine, 2016

Blueberry day! This weekend we marked the midpoint of the summer with trips to Monhegan Island and some blueberry picking. A little scratched up and sun bleached but otherwise we are having a wonderful time.

Wood Nymph

Maine, 2016

This little imp has been learning to climb crabapple trees and is getting quite good.

His Element

Maine, 2016

I think it's safe to say that Oscar is a natural in Maine, and so loves being on the water, in the water, and causing trouble near the water. Tonight it took him about five adults to get him to bed but aside from that...he's in his element here.

Lately

Maine, 2016

It's idyllic to be out of the city this summer, even if there's sometimes a cacophony of screaming children here. The days are long in Maine, and jam packed. There are plenty of flash points where it all seems a little hairy, but then there are the sweet, peaceful moments that make it more than worthwhile.

Sometimes, I remember an adventure that seems like it happened days ago and realize it was just this morning. So we're all a little delirious, but it makes me so happy to see the boys hunting for frogs or hermit crabs and running around barefoot with various scrapes and war wounds...proof of a busy day on the beach.

Sunstruck

Maine, 2016
Getting through the heat wave with lots of belly flops in the pool, boat trips, improvised tents, and much-delayed bedtimes.

Squirrel Madness

Maine, 2016

I think we're getting to the point in the summer where the children have staged a coup and are running the show. These wild squirrels are having a ball.

Lately

Maine, 2016

Completing several mini Olympics here a day, between the badminton, swimming, rolling, child throwing, and other extreme sports.

Bo: Seven Months Old

Bo, 2016

Bo has been a little under the weather (which has incidentally been driving rain for three days.) But he's still such a cheerful fellow, and getting right into the fray of cousins and family.

Here's a look back at Oscar and Axel at the same age.
