I watch as my own hobbits meander toward the sunset.



All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by frost.

-Tolkein

Such a sweet photo and Tolkein quote. Family is such a treasure. :)

It is beautiful. Teeny girl on the bike slightly off kilter just behind, a boy stalwart and steady, a road ahead with possibilities unlimited and a perhaps a painted green hobbit door waiting with second breakfast...a bit to dream on.

Are you missing a teenage girl in the photo? I'm assuming that's The Russian with 3 of your kids. ??

Or are you missing a little one? Hard to tell ages from the back... :)

And yes, I'd love to come over for cocoa! :)
