"A child has no trouble believing the unbelievable, nor does the genius or the madman. It's only you and I, with our big brains and our tiny hearts, who doubt and overthink and hesitate." Steven Pressfield

What's that? 
It's September you say.
Time for school and books and falling leaves.
We are not buying it for one minute.


 









"A child has no trouble 
believing the unbelievable, 
nor does the genius or the madman. 
It’s only you and I, 
with our big brains and our tiny hearts,
 who doubt and overthink and hesitate."

I spent my 100+ degree day outside watching pop warner football...I would have much rather been playing with a water hose :)

I am not accepting it either... nope nope nope.

Oh, Becky, I LOVE all the photos here. You've captured the joy of summer, the joy of childhood. :) And that second-to-the-last shot? Just took my breath away. That reflection is totally beautiful... and I don't mean just from a photographic standpoint. It's just so, so precious.

There's something in each one of your shots that make them amazing photos - how you've captured the water sprays, the energy of the boys, their expressions etc but that 2nd last shot with the little one looking at his reflection......wow - that's amazing.

You capture the greatest moments in life!!!
If I had another baby, I would never let it wear clothes....just diapers 24/7. They are so cute that way.

myrelish said...

So many beautiful photos of gorgeous little ones. I can't wait until it is warm enough for water play around here (I say as I sit here all rugged up and still cold!)

ceodraiocht said...

Gorgeous photos - but hey no one has yet said it?

They've got the "working, concentrating with butt crack prominently displayed" look down to a science already :-)

Make a note to yourself to drag out these photos when they're in high school.

Saw you on Communcal Global - you might want to let Lola know her blog is only set to accept comments from Google Accounts. Blogger lets you add "openid" like you have here where I sign in from my Wordpress account. Thought she'd want to know but she also doesn't have a "contact us" or email on the site.

Unknown Mami said...

I don't know, your pictures kind of inspire me to believe in the unbelievable.

Laurie Matherne said...

A great quote. I may have to borrow it sometime. I introduced the joy of water balloons a few days ago to a group of Honduran boys and girls. It was a delightful day.
