Brookie went with Avery and me to do the pick up. She clipped the thyme while we picked bouquets of brightly colored flowers. The heat finally broke and the sky was picture perfect blue with white fluffy clouds. Avery took some photos this week as well, you can credit him with this great sky pic :)
It's funny. I never would have thought to take this photograph. Brookie and I were walking around the farm, picking tomatoes and basil (thanks for the extra basil, Tricia and Tom!), chatting about boring grown up stuff, and I'm sure we must have mentioned the sky... commented on the breeze, on the coolness in the air. Avery was around us, snapping photos. Of the beehive, orange cherry tomatoes, weeds. Always in his own little world. Wondering, wandering, investigating.
It wasn't until I just now unloaded the camera that I realized he too noticed the air and the blue, blue sky.
His nine-year-old mind enjoyed it enough to pause. Notice. And take a photo.
Thanks, monster. You're going to be a great big brother.
Congratulations, Rodney and Leanne, and welcome little Aren Anthony. August 9th 2006, 11:25pm, 8 pounds 10 ounces. One love.
