It’s been a bazillion degrees here this week – the heat wave started just in time for the first week of school. I drove by Annabel’s school on Friday (the hottest day) during morning recess and the Kindergarteners didn’t seem too bothered by the 100-degree temperature, but on our walk home I could see Annabel was really overheated. Luckily, my Aunt Lynn has a pool, so we cooled off there. Annabel said, “I can’t believe we get to swim even though I went to school today!”
