Although our grass is sun-kissed dry and yellow, we are seeing green in one little corner of our yard.  We've only picked a few green beans to consider our harvest, but it is quite a magical corner to walk through.  New and interesting bugs for the girls, baby lopes and melons they caress, and the green sign of life is growing ever so tall.  I can't wait to walk out one morning to see our sunflowers blooming.

This has been a magical gardening summer.

Tomorrow we head out for another exploring adventure as a family up north.  Thanks to all of you who sent comments and who personally contacted me with great ideas for traveling with kids recently--I'm excited to try some of them.  Enjoy the green in your neck of the woods today!
