His list.

Lately we find ourselves taking every possible opportunity to enjoy the last days of summer.

 Summer is when my son grows. 
It's also when he likes to add new things to his list.

He believes that summer is not a time of life — it's a state of mind.

It depends on the quality of his imagination and having more courage than fear.

Having an appetite for adventure over love of ease.

Going after new challenges...

and the joy in the game of life.

Checking wakeboarding off his list and having an appetite for what is to come next.

It was fun to watch.
xo mom.

Wow. What a handsome son! I can't even imagine mine to be that big, and yet everyone tells me it's going to happen in the blink of an eye.

They grow into young men so quickly. This is a lovely post Lisa. Collier is so handsome and his mother is just beautiful! These are wonderful photos of both of you.

Enjoy the last few days of summer. It's really beginning to feel like fall here in CT.
