summer renew 36 #100daysfieldjournal

Today is the first day of summer vacation.  I am sitting in a lawn chair in a park. 

The air is little more than perfect and I hear the song of birds and the steady hum of a lawnmower occasionally interrupted by a rooster’s crow. 

There are the sounds of balls bouncing now and the voices of my 30 toes.  Sometimes a car passes on the nearby road, but it is not too close. 

There are voices and sounds from other children, they are older than mine, nearly too old for a playground and yet they are playing, how wonderful. 

I got up and played, how wonderful. 

Today is the first day of my first summer vacation as a parent; kindergarten passed in the blink of an eye, and yet its season had long moments.

Summer renew us.

With gratitude,
