The Front Porch

I love my front porch.

When the wind picks up and the rockers start to sway with the promise of  a much-needed summer storm.

And last night, somewhere between supper and showers, we had ourselves a little concert on our front porch.

Lia was the opening act.
What she lacks in lyrics she most definitely makes up for in "porch presence."

Next was my hard rocker who surprised us all by forgoing his usual hip-hop routine to show off his softer, gentler side...

And then there was Miss Lily.
She rounded out the performances with a new twist on an old classic.
It's the most Mandarin I've heard her speak (or sing) since meeting her 6 months ago.

We haven't had nearly as much "front porch time" as I'd have liked to have had this summer.
But with the concert line up we've got around here, it seems we're going to have to find some.


  1. What a great way to start my week. I think all of them should consider a musical career or talent show. Loved It, Loved It, Loved It!!!!! See you all really soon. Love Ya, Nana

  2. Tears. :) That was so sweet. All of them. I am amazed at how well Lily seems to be learning English. She is doing GREAT! This is encouraging to me since our new son is five and I have heard so many negative things about how quickly he will pick up English because of that. Thank you so much for sharing. I LOVE it!
