I have this thing about sunflowers...I love them. I love them because they remind me of Heber where they line the driveway to the house I grew up in. I love them because they are bright and cheerful and beautiful. I love them because they are wild and strong. I love them because they remind me of summer, especcailly the end of summer when you can look back on the summer and everything good that has happened. I love them because they make me sentimental ever year...and for that I hate them. I hate them because they cause me to look back on the summer, and if you are looking back on the summer, then the summer is over and I love the summer more than I love the sunflowers.

I love that picture of the sunflower. Did you take it? Good luck with your move! It's exciting to go somewhere new (I bet you're mom's not too happy, though!) You guys are such a cute little family!

Oh ya, we will see if you still love summer after the heat of Arizona hits you. I think it is about as hot as where I am moving. 110 degree's all summer long.

It's good to "see" you!

My favorite flower as well! I love that pix!! When I lived back east, every weekend coming out of the train station from the city, I would by a HUGE bouquet to last until the next Friday! Such great memories!!! I love your description, wild and strong, so perfect!

How crazy that you guys are moving to AZ. When do you move? I'm excited for you-it sounds like a great opportunity.

You're right about the sunflower in Heber. It always reminded me of the starting of another school year (and of course soccer season)! Kind of a sentimental flower as well.
