Balmy (read: Humid and Hot) summer days are here. The month of June was filled with swim lessons, trips to the ice cream shop, celebrating Father's Day at Boulevardia, and al fresco dining in the back yard with friends. Lucinda is our big little girl and in June she seemed to be both a baby and so grown up. When we are driving somewhere, she asks from the backseat if one of us will hold her hand. Yes! Even though we have to twist our arm painfully to do so. Because what happens when she stops asking? We don't think about that now, instead we say Yes as much as we can. Yes to swimming and ice cream and tickles and painted nails and wearing mama's necklaces and daddy's shoes. Yes to painted faces, ferris wheels, and fruit like rubies on your fingers.
