The beginning of the end...



School is out on Wednesday.  (Yes.  We do it early 
in GA.)  And, of course, it's already HOT.  No 
more classes, but a lot of fun in the sun...

Oh, how I love my hydrangeas!

Sweet Shot Day




I even love them before they turn blue...








And, thankfully Luke helps me water them!


Photobucket




Of course...he also gets silly...

(He was actually saying, "Get in my belly!", while 
making this face.  Never a dull moment.)


ShutterLoveTuesdays




...and I get silly, too...like lying on the driveway for this one...


Photography love...

So cute. I love that last one.

Wow, that is early! J doesn't get off until the end of June.

Your hydrangeas are beautiful. I could just pull up a chair and just look at them... so pretty!

Luke is just too cute. I can't get enough of your kiddie's beautiful eyes. :)

Already out eh? I think the kids around here are in school until June (but I guess that's still close). It's so hot already. I can't wait til Fall. Love the hydrangeas.

Tara said...

FLowers and silly time too! It's summer!

Rachelle said...

We've just 19 days left in our school year (4 days of tests and review, actually). I cannot wait to be DONE. Summers here are liesurely time for the kids and I. I love these shots of Luke and that he knows that line from Austin Powers, too cute! As you describe, he seems like a fun character to be around!

How cute - such sweet family memories for you! And great shots of the hydrangeas too - some of my favorite flowers! In fact, my senior mom's gardening project is to create a butterfly garden this year. I should suggest one of those as we don't have any at this house and I just read they do attract the decorative butterflies. Thanks for the lovely idea and reminder. Have a fun Sweet Shot Tuesday.

Your hydrangeas are gorgeous! One of my favorite plants for a garden! Hope the boys have a great summer vacation!

Uyen said...

Luke is sooooo adorable...just love him. I also love the "blues" in your pictures too. gorgeous! Can't believe school is out for you this Wednesday. We don't get out until June 11th! Not only that, I found out yesterday that a NEW project was assigned to them and is due on June 6th! You know what that means...the parents are the one who does most of the work on these projects! :(

Serline said...

Gorgeous blooms, and I hope Luke picks up his green fingers from your prime example ;-)

Chic Homeschool Mama said...

Oh my Dina! That first shot took my breath away- hydrangeas are one of my most favorite flowers ever & blue ones are at the top of my list! LOOOOOOOOVEEE them!!!! I wish they would survive here but it's just too hot & dry. They would shrivel up way too fast.

AJ said...

Beautiful hydrangeas and I love the sun-flare on your last shot...so pretty!

Cedar said...

Get in my belly?--made me laugh out loud! Kids are so funny. It is worth lying in the driveway for a precious shot like that one! Cute kids and beautiful flowers!

Nicolle said...

I love that you anticipate the summer to be fun and filled with exploration. It seems like I hear so many moms dreading their kids being home for the summer.

Lovely photos, as always!

Beautiful! I love hydrangeas, but I'm not sure how they'd do up here. I can't believe I'm saying this, but lucky you and your hot weather! I'm so tired of it being cool!!!!!!!!!!
