We have had some unusually early days of hot, humid weather that normally only happens in July or August! Thankfully, we found our box of swimsuits and water toys to help the kids to cool down and enjoy the weather instead of being cooped up inside where the air conditioner was running (that's where I was ;-). We put the famous "Elmo Sprinkler" in the front yard this time, and attracted some of the kids from the neighborhood who wanted in on the fun! It has been great to see my kids making new friends, and I'm glad to see that the kids in this neighborhood are kind and respectful to both children and parents. I am thankful that God led us to a nice area, on a cul-de-sac where the kids can all play outside safely and are watched by many caring parents and neighbors.
