wedged between a rash of thunderstorms, we've had these sticky afternoons that sing of summer.
sunday we trekked a few miles on the greenway, the kids discussing the finer points of killer bees and why smiling in passport photographs is oft discouraged.
'twas a bit of a toasty walk, so we picked up a carton of thin mint ice cream on the way home, then doused ourselves in the backyard sprinkler.
something about the heat makes me crave all manner of salads, so dinner was a hearty cobb, which ended up a bit topping-heavy. the kids braved the diced avocados and decided they were not so fond of the green fellas outside of a nice guacamole, but as my eleven year old so sagely stated: well, i think we're about to get good at trying things we aren't sure about.
i don't know if the recent warmth means summer's going to be intense or just early, but either way i'm near dizzy with this rush of blue and sun.
feels like a bright snatch of eternity with a God who gives mighty good gifts.
