{semi} Wordless Wednesday

Happy Hump Day!

I'm Allie from Sundresses and Smiles and am so thrilled to be guest posting on one of my very favorite blogs:  Flip Flops & Pearls.  Isn't Daph the greatest?  I've missed her posts and sweet sweet comments so much this summer, but am happy that her absence has allowed me to post for all of y'all.

If you're a reader of my blog, you're familiar with "The Cuties."  Cutie A and Cutie B are the two little loves that I nanny for in the summers.  I have babysat for them for 5 years and really consider them family.  This week is our last week together for the summer and we are all feeling VERY sad, so I thought it would be fun to share some of our pictures from the summer, sprinkled with some favorite quotes about kids for today's semi WW.

"While we try to teach our children all about life,
Our children teach us what life is all about."
Angela Schwindt

"There are no seven wonders of the world in the eyes of a child.  There are seven million."
Walt Streightiff

"Children are the hands by which we take hold of heaven."
Henry Ward Beecher

"Children will not remember you for the material things you provided but for the feeling that you cherished them."
Richard L. Evans

"A characteristic of the normal child is he doesn't act that way very often"

"The only thing worth stealing is a kiss from a sleeping child."
Joe Houldsworth

"No one has yet fully realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness, and generosity hidden in the soul of a child.  The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure."
Emma Goldman

"Adults are always asking little kids what they wanna be when they grow up because they're looking for ideas."
Paula Poundstone

I hope you all have a fabulous day and enjoyed a peak into my daily life with the Cuties!  

Hope to see you soon at Sundresses and Smiles!
