That Old-Time Magic

That old-time magic childhood brings

Springs from the very simplest things...

The sprinklers on a sunny day

The innocent desire to play

The fruit of life in rich supply

And sparklers on 4th of July

(Yep, these are my grandkids!)

Summertime is the best, isn't it? Even better with kids, as it brings out the kid in all of us.

Watermelon is the flavor of the 4th of July.

Beautiful memories.

Those are three lucky kids---to have a Mom who can spend so much time with them and who plans so many fun things for them to do each day----and to have a Grandma who can write such lovely rhymes beneath each of their fun pictures!

Cherie said...

Did you write the poem? So perfect to describe summer!
Your grandkids are just so cute!

I'm not sure how I found your blog, but I wanted you to know that lately I've been bemoaning how quickly my sweet kiddos are growing up. I mean, the oldest two are only 11, but still... it's like time is going by WAY TOO FAST! Reading your blog helped me realize that I have lots of fun in store as a grandmother! Thanks! (:

sparklers, watermelon and running barefoot through the sprinkers, I really miss those days! Think anyone would find it unusal if I decided to indulge?
