What a week! We have been surrounded by family and friends, and celebrating constantly lately! BUT - I digress, and you will have to wait for more details about all of the excitement.
The week started on Monday with one of my favorite days of the year ~ the Summer Solstice. We enjoyed the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, with the Earth the furthest from the sun, on a little hike at Blandford. We had to go visit, what has become, "our tree." Miles is six months old now, but we have been visiting this spot together for much longer than that!
You may remember that I started this whole blogging adventure "patiently waiting" at this very spot in November 2009. This hike was special though! It was the first time Miles met his Aunt Jessica ~ and it was really precious because Blandford is a really memorable place for Jessica. She attended the Blandford School as a sixth grader, and the trails and the forests of this place mean so very much to her because of her history here.
I am so happy to know that Miles will be able to grow in understanding and appreciation of the valuable resources this Earth provides for us with a wonderful guide like his Aunt Jessica to lead him. We should all be so lucky!!! The world might be a much better place.
