Trevelyn went for a walk in The Big Wide World by himself.
which was, more precisely, a solo walk to the store with a jingling pocket and a dream. "I'm nine years old, Mom. Almost ten."
deep breath. "Okay."
off he went.
but i was hurrying Eric and Madd to their bikes when i thought he'd been gone long enough... only to see him at the top of the hill, making his way down...

and since we were (conveniently :) ) already loaded onto our bikes...

  3. My chard never grows like that. What IS your secret?

    The thought of my little guy venturing out into the world on his own is almost to much to bear. Oh my heart.

  4. Perfect supper.

    My 12 year old is totally pushing to see how far he can go on his own. How will we ever make it through those first ones growing up on us? Wah!

  6. I remember sending Emmy on that first walk to the shops all by herself a couple of years ago. I think I started getting antsy and followed on after her about five minutes later hiding behind lamposts all the way:)
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful Summer day here Stephanie. You inspire!
