Social Whirl

Maine, 2016

It's been a busy social week here in supposedly sleepy Maine.

Maine, 2016

A few photos from life lately.

Axel did his first (okay second) overnight with his papa on the sailboat last night; both boys have been busily learning to kayak in the pool thanks to a special early birthday gift from their grandmother.

Oscar's vocabulary has been exploding (sea glass, pine cones, buoys, lobster boats, etc.) and I think he's grown about an inch in three weeks, thanks to plenty of sunshine and salt water.

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

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.

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.

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