Graham was away at camp all of last week, which meant that it was just Sir Nathan and Miss Emily at home. The two of them are the best of friends, and Graham likes to fly solo, but having him physically removed from our home was different. He was missed by all of us.

We passed our time as we always do, by visiting various local beaches. My kids love to jump off of the docks at one beach and I obliged.

Can we jump three times?


Can we jump five times?


Can we jump ten times?


Why would I ever deny them the thrill of a jump, or ten jumps? Or eleven jumps, if you count the one “for good luck”?

Rail jumping



Double Jump




My kids are jumping, fearlessly. I’ll always encourage them to do exactly that.

    Fun! Great shots … and when did your kids get so big?!?! They look like teenagers.
    Ethan is away at camp this week too, so it’s strange for us to only be a family of 3. Tyler is missing his buddy!

    It’s so weird when the dynamics change, hey?

    And, yeah. My kids are growing up way too fast!!

    Angella! When did your kids grow up? I started reading your blog when Emily was BALD.

    So fun. Jumping off docks is the best!
    I hope Graham is enjoying himself, but I bet he misses his sibs. :-)
