Summer’s last gasp

Hard to believe, but Olivia and Mateo started back to school today. For years, people have told me childhood passes like a flash, but I could never quite believe them. Now I can.

Here are a few pictures from the last days of summer. The one above is from yesterday, when Mateo and I took a final spin along our favorite bike path. In the photo below, Mateo is showing off his new soccer ball from Guatemala.

In the last picture, Mateo greets his first day of school with a smile. Summer’s over, all right. I’m sorry to see it go.

    Wow..mateo looks so official with the soccer gear. Ms. O?

    Doesn’t he look grown up?! Ms. O also doing great, was very busy sewing during the bike riding adventure. As for first-day-of-school pix: Olivia’s reached the age where I really must allow her veto power if I want to post photos. Already, as you know, I try not to write about her “specifically,” but as part of our general escapades.

    So… no photos for now. Maybe next time!
