It's almost summer.
The beating sun was relentless on our hard heads as we walked home from school today.
As soon as we got home I sent the boys outside gripping half moon slices of juicy watermelon and a basket of freshly filled water balloons. I guess I'm a cool mom. My oldest child told me so between deep slurps and furious lip licking.
This circus lasted a whopping 15 minutes and then the troops retreated indoors for shade and evening baths. It was fun while it lasted!

Balloons make me happy. I don't exactly know why, but they do.
Do you know how many hundreds of balloons I let go as a child into the vast Arizona sky with a note of well wishes tied haphazardly to the trailing string? I guess I am a romantic at heart.
Instead of dreaming about balloons, I should be making a grocery list
What's for dinner tonight...?
Don't forget batteries and lightbulbs.
Are we out of dish soap?
More bright balloons and less boring groceries today please.
