oh, how i've missed this.

to kick off the summer, we went bug collecting in the woods on friday.

coming back to the woods brought back so many happy feelings for me. we used to live right next to it, and i remember spending summer days among the tall grass and the trees. my brother, alex, built a whole bunch of forts there, from two tree forts to a "bomb shelter" to teepees. it's such a peaceful little place, even though it's so close to the road. you can focus on the wind ruffling the leaves, the sounds of birds and bugs, and the feeling of God throughout the whole wood.

and as i knelt down to snap a photo, i said to my brother,"alex, oh how i've missed this."

happy almost-summer, friends!
