The Little American's Summer 2013

Well, It's been a busy, festive and memorable summer with our Little American . Unfortunately, it's already time to focus on Fall.   School starts in 3 weeks and we are already getting announcement calls from the school's principal reminding us the semester is just around the corner.  The good news is(as far as blogging) that Daniel will be starting the first grade which means a full day at school should give me some free time to blog.  In the meantime,  here are some(okay, several) photos highlighting his summer.  Also, included are 3 short videos.   I apologize in advance for the photos not being in proper order.

Gorgeous pictures. He has certainly been a very busy young man. He will be glad to get back to school for a rest!! Seriously though, what an interesting and exciting summer for him.

I have so missed "The Little American" adventures. I am afraid he can not be called the little anything anymore, such a big handsome boy.
I absolutely adore his attire but my favorite outfit has to be the dining in formal whites. The underwear that is, too funny.

The Little American's "What I Did This Summer" essay during the first week of school will be 30 pages long. Fabulous! As a child, my parents traveled with all over the United States every summer. They are still some of my most precious memories. Thanks for taking us along. Cherry Kay

I know it was hotter than hell when you were in NYC, but the LA manages to look quite cool!
