Today is the official first day of it. Just today we made a donut run, ran in the sprinklers, took both cars through the car wash, and ate garden tomatoes. We arrived home Friday from a week at the beach and we're headed back again in another few. There's cable TV at the beach house and we watch it in our jammies.
I love summer. Maybe too much, it takes me away from this place where I must round up all the rubble. I get grounded here. Grounded in the magic of it. And here reminds me of the truth of family and to keep protecting and celebrating even the in between moments. I'll try and stop by more often.
