Remembering the slow time of childhood.
Right around now, someone would comment about how summer was half over. When I was a child, back to school was always after Labor Day. Until then, the days seemed endless and time slowed down. Here in this photo I’m the little one standing with my siblings, waiting for the school bus.
There were fields on all four sides of our house, and we were allowed to roam. We spent time gleaning ripe fruit and berries, climbing trees like the elephant tree, riding our bikes with siblings and friends, and also hiking up the small mountain behind our house. My parents had two main rules – always have a buddy with you, and come home before dark.
Hope your summer is a relaxing one. When you have a moment, check out other Six Word Saturday musings, hosted by Cate at Show My Face, by clicking on the image below. Enjoy!
