June Heat Wave

The past two weeks have been filled with more hot days than not. Sure at first it's fun to have a nice, hot day when you get the pool out and the children run through the sprinklers. We made popsicles to celebrate the hot days. But then a very bad forest fire was raging north of us and some nights we couldn't open our windows (we have no air conditioning) and that was not pleasant. Our grass started turning brown; more sprinkler time means extra work for the adults, but more fun for the kids. They had a few water pistol fights. 

Despite the heat the older children have been very active the past two weeks with karate, swimming lessons, running club, golfing (B & J with Grandma Karen), biking, hiking (Virgin Creek Trail with me and Marjorie), archery (in the back yard!), playground visits,  and whatever it is they do on their own outside on the driveway or in the yard. They, of course, have nearly endless energy, but I'm exhausted! The days never seem to end because summer solstice equals 19+ hours of daylight. It's crazy time!
