Happy Summer Solstice

Unite and Unite
Now let us unite
Summer is a comin' today....

We've had a great first day of summer. We froze strawberries picked on the summer solstice, not to be opened until the winter solstice. We had a great time imagining what it will be like on that cold dark night, remembering this hot sunny day.

H and I then took a walk on our road gathering ferns and wildflowers.

It resulted in this beautiful table.

After dinner the girls made a fairy house and left the fairies strawberries and a newly painted sun. Who knows if they'll come out to celebrate tonight. We'll have to wait and see in the morning.

H and I ended the evening with a lantern walk back down our road to watch the fireflies come out. The end of a long summer day.

Update---the fairies came. There's glitter everywhere out there!

What a special day! I loved all of the sweet, simple, *peaceful* activities you chose to make the day a special and meaningful one for your family. Beautiful!
