Weekly photo challenge: Summer

I’m afraid I’m writing very little at the moment because my sadness prevails despite the sunshine.

However, I’d like to think I captured a moment of unspoilt innocence when I saw my son blowing dandelion clocks as the sun was setting behind him. These are the moments we, as parents, need to hold onto – especially during the struggles when our children want to grow up too quickly and we try desperately to slow them down. I want him to stay like this forever – but sadly, he has other ideas … and I can feel the grip loosening as the Summer heat gets stronger.
