Hope your summer is going as easy as his.


He just found out minutes ago that he and his best friend have the same second grade teacher, he has accomplished his goals (swimming bands), he's lived in boxers or old handmedown light cotton sweats the entire summer, his head is resting on the fleece blanket from his baby crib, his shoulders wrapped in "colored blankie" made by a loving friend and accompanied him from birth, he's playing his favorite game on his DS, on the front porch in the cool morning air. ... On a chair his father trashpicked... Does a 7 year old's life get any better? Yeah. Yesterday he went kayaking with Mom in the morning and to a drive-in with Dad and brother in the evening...coming home to freshly made chocolate chocolate chip ice cream in the freezer.


Like I said...I do hope your summer is going as well as his.

Not exactly....probably not even close. Maybe next summer when I am bound and determined to be 7 again.

I'm going to try all that. Except I don't think My First Wife will go dumpster diving for a wicker settee. Hmmm....
