The longest day of the year and the official start date for SUMMERTIME! The solstice has always been sort of a magical day to me. The beginning of the summer break, I remember long afternoons when i was allowed to ride my bike way into the warm evenings.
This year our solstice was pretty sweet. We had a nice supper of soup made from everything we could reasonably get into the stew pot. It was chicken with mushroom, wild rice, and dumpling soup and it was pretty good. It was accompanied by a great salad and the Geraths Family. AP, Mari, Brittany, Casey and of ourse miss Paisley!
We sat out by the fire after supper and watched Paisley and Buddy play in the yard.
Paisley has become quite the dare devil as of late and was eager to test out her balance beam skillz.
It was a lovely evening and a great way to start the summer.
