Suspended in time...

The gang's all here! Well, most of them. The others will be arriving this weekend. (Please pray that they have a safe trip.)
My kiddies have a couple of friends and cousins that come to visit every Summer from the U.S. My kids, the visiting kids and the some of the neighborhood kids all gather at my house to play, watch t.v. and help me bake cookies or cupcakes. It's a fun tradition that we look forward to year after year.
What amazes me most is that as soon as the kiddies reunite, it's as if time has stood still for an entire year. There's no, "Oh my goodness! Look at how you've grown!" Which is usually my reaction. It's just a group of friends getting together to laugh and play, as if the year apart had only been a couple of hours.
Summer...what a lovely time of year!
