A Sure Sign of Summer

Short Pants in SummerYou know it's summer once you can see two inches above the ankle. Three inches and it's time for school to start.

I love the picture! Kids grow so fast and out of know where. Thanks for your comments on my blog! The area you lived in is really beautiful - and lucky to live so close!

I marvel at how my kids begin the school year with cuffs dragging on the floor. But come June, and they're like capris. What a cute photo :-)

Jan said...

At least now they're "in style". Cute photo.

yes, I can agree with that one :) I bet that person is very tall? Happy WW.

Jaycee said...

Um yes, short pants. An ongoing story in my household. Shoes are an ongoing issue too.

Thanks for the reminder about traditions. I've started it.

I've never heard of that way to measure the passing of a season (LOL)! CUTE!

Linda said...

That's one way to measure the passage of time!

Srching said...

Fabulous perspective.

kailani said...

That's the way I look year-round! LOL!

Thea said...

Maybe you can make marks on his legs to memorialize inseams...

Just a thought.

So very true. I don't know how they grow so much in the summer!?!?

Janie Hickok Siess, Esq. said...

Yup. I still end up telling the youngest, "Well, just hang on because school is almost over and we'll get new clothes in the fall." Torn knees and shorts that get too short . . . he's over 6 feet tall. How much longer? :-)

My photo is posted . . . a special one for Father's Day. Stop by!

Ingrid said...

walking barefoot is the best feeling of all. makes you closer to nature. great shot!!! amazing!

amy said...

yeah for summer, what a cool pic

Gattina said...

That's very true, except some men who run around like that the whole year, we call it "highwater" !

Donna said...

Yep, summer is here for sure when shoes are abandoned.

Jenn in Holland said...

Love the shot! What a great set of ankles anyway! My daughter came in to my room yesterday with a pair of too short jeans, asking me to transform them into capris!
I will do it, but it won't be long before they are bermuda length shorts.

Write From Karen said...

Boy, ain't THAT the truth!! I had to buy my oldest pants TWICE last year and he's already outgrown most of his summer stuff. *sigh* I keep telling him to stop growing so fast, but you know, being a teenager, he totally ignores me. *grin*

Lei said...

Lol. Ain't it the truth!

Ni Yachen said...

Because of that and wearing holes in their pants, Rebecca went to Salvation Army and picked up summer play cloths. She said she could have made them but she didn't have any old drapper or the "Do Re Me Sew" time. :)

TeaMouse said...

pant school barometer....lol!

elena jane said...

lol, but isn't that in style now?
we have that too, only the pants don't look that way till october since we're in short pants all summer long :)

Damselfly said...
