I grew up in the country, so I’m no stranger to wide open spaces however, there’s something amazing about a clear Kentucky sky. We jokingly refer to them as “Simpson’s skies” here in my house because they are almost cartoon like. I don’t know what it is that brings on the clear blue sky and huge fluffy white clouds but we definitely didn’t have skies like this in Maryland… it’s probably too close to the pollution of Washington DC and Baltimore. Regardless, it’s one of the things that I’m thankful for in this beautiful state, and while we don’t have skies like this every day, I always notice when we do.
This month our blog circle’s theme is “Air” and when I think of air this time of year, I think of the clear blue Kentucky sky, rolling fields and well, room to breathe. We are lucky enough to live outside the city of Louisville with space for my children to run and play and just be kids. So I choose to make this month’s blog circle post a little fun and took my oldest to one of those rolling fields to capture some of that beautiful big sky.
It’s hard to believe but it’s all real, no cloud overlays on these images! You can probably tell by these pictures that super heroes are the theme in my house right now. It wasn’t hard to convince him to help once I told him that he could keep his cape on. I have to admit though, when I envisioned the picture above, I was thinking he might be able to jump a little higher! 🙂 Oh well, I love the effort! He’s definitely a super hero in my book!
