an upstate mindset

20 . July . 2011

there is much to learn
from this piece of
the hudson river valley.

the still vibrancy,
the sounds and smells,
the expectancy,
the colors and depths of
the hills on the opposite side
as dawn and twilight
toy [masterfully] with them…

oh, the beauty of the Lord.


the paper doll extravaganza
has continued all week,
thanks to the talented ms. winfield.


poolside with miss cates, miss cates +
ms. mason.


free-form piano practice
means you can take a
headstand break
as often as desired. xo


as soon as cory is
off the train & in our arms,
it’s hit-the-pool time.


hiking in our swimsuits
as not to waste a swimmy-moment
when we’re back.


on the banks of the hudson river,
with bear mountain bridge
teeny-tiny in the background.

squint?


in our collective
lingering-beside-the-river
book bag:

thomas aquinas
&
‘all-of-a-kind family’


thank you, garrison market.


making our tents +
creating ‘homes’ in them
including artwork for the ‘walls’
and sleeping arrangements for
our ‘children’ (stuffed animal children, as it were).

caroline’s even has an address plaque,
‘2 5 5’

as in, ‘255 garrison, hudson river, new york’
not
‘255 w 70’

don’tbesilly.

we’ve been reading
galatians at mealtimes,
pondering what it means to
be sons of God…

thank you,
thank you,

cross family…xoxo.
