Well we’re ALL trying to “live in the moment”…to “lessen our screen time”…to enjoy our lives as we live them…yes? Yes. That precludes writing about these moments, but I continue to gather the images as if I WERE writing about them, and now I’m way behind. So how about trying to catch up with just the images…kind of a serial Instagram? We set up for summer, went to White Salmon, WA, for George’s birthday, we hung out with Sidney (see if you can see the big announcement!), Roger had his portrait painted by Erik Sandgren, we looked at art and made art and wrote things and celebrated birthdays and mourned losses, and then the fourth of July, the heart of the summer. And that’s where we are…the heart of the summer. Stay cool friends.
Wonderful post! I’m so excited for you,will be waiting to hear of it’s arrival!
Thanks Deb…”it’s” a she! Early December!
Love, love, love, of course, Bonnie Hull!

What a lovely summer you have had, and it is only halfway. The video of Maruice, of course, made me cry.
Dayna that was such a moment all oon its own…wish I had kept videoing and had the whole song. Thanks for bringing him here! xo
Love it all, such fun pic! Is there a new babe coming?
Lisa…yep, baby girl coming early December. She’ll be born in St. Croix (her dad will be working for FEMA for 18 months) without her grandparents in attendance, but I suspect she’ll survive that…will we though? xo
Oh – this is a profoundly lovely treat!
Best post….EVER!!! Loved every image. The Sandgren portrait is exquisite! Thank you Bonnie. You bring joy and love to these troubled times! xoxo
Shirley: The image of the portrait here is the “penultimate” version…we haven’t seen the fiinished piece yet…should be fun!

Oh sweet Bonnie! this post is marvelous and I’m so grateful to see it! Every image is wonderful and I loved seeing big boy Sidney getting to make the big reveal!
I have been out of touch due to major computer problems, server problems and my ridiculous aol account. I’m trying to change everything to gmail and am so relieved to finally find that all your posts seem to be waiting for me to indulge my craving for your communications! Love to you Two and congratulations on your glorious news: your December Grand Daughter!
Sue-Del!!! Xxoo and thanks for being such a loyal reader!
