Well, today is the first day of summer. And to celebrate, half the neighborhood seems to be having parties tonight. My parking spot on the street was full when I got home, so I snuggled in behind another car in our driveway. And the bases are thumping.
“We’ll have to stay up all night,” said Olivia. “The music is too loud for sleeping!” But mean old Grammy is putting them to bed anyway. They spent the evening swimming and watching movies with friends, and now they are tired enough to be arguing that they aren’t tired — I’m sure every parent recognizes those symptoms!
It is time to read from “Alice in Wonderland” and hear prayers. Sweet summery dreams, everyone.
