It's been a busy week and I've missed a few days of blogging, but I did want to pop in today with my weekly installment of look up//look down, the insightful photography meme started by Helena. I took these photographs on Sunday in the Stern Grove at Golden Gate Park, where we went to see a wonderful concert by Pink Martini and La Santa Cecilia. I looked up to see beautiful eucalyptus trees and down to see some of their colorful leaves. I'm really glad we went to the concert as it was on my summer fun to-do list. I only have one more week before I start school; two more weeks before Clara is back to school; and about a month before Henry is off to University. So, I guess I better get moving on the rest of my to-do list! How about you? Are you getting everything you want out of summer (or at least close)?
