This week seems to really have marked the passage of spring to summer. We've had 90 degree days. We put the air conditioning on for the first time this year. It's too hot to sit out on the back porch until late afternoon.
On Saturday, my daughter played her final soccer game of the season, and no sooner had the soccer bag been put away (wait a minute, it's still on the floor in the family room), then she pulled out her softball glove and was playing catch to warm up for Monday night's practice.
Son #2 didn't miss a beat, sliding from regular baseball season into summer league. He has three games this week.
Son #1 is preparing for a long summer in Tacoma without his college friends. Most of them have taken off for the summer, and he is experiencing his first summer ever without a break, as he is in the workforce now.
DH's softball league started playing a couple weeks ago. As if we don't get enough bleacher time, Tuesday evenings will find Emily and I down at the park, watching Dad pitch and Luke playing outfield.
My flowers are planted and I'm going to look for some rosebushes this week. I've started my summer routine of going out first thing in the morning, watering the pots of flowers on the front porch and starting a pitcher of sun tea on the back porch.
The kids have just one week of school left. Then it's official, summer will be here to stay.
