last day of summer | first day of school

we were in swimsuits.
with life vests strapped to our backs.
riding on a boat and intertubes
and playing in water.
(champoeg park & willamette river | labor day 2010)
we were in school clothes.
with backpacks strapped to our backs.
riding on bikes
and walking into our new classrooms.
(sunnyside elementary, grades 1,3, and 5 | september 7, 2010)
in both places
we had each other
and dear friends to share it with.
(special thanks to the top family for a day on the river!!)

here's to another school year!
