First Day of Summer

Yesterday was the first day of summer. The real story of the day were the clouds. They stole the show from the sun. They were thick and dark and abundant. They looked as if any moment, they were going to open up and drop lots of rain on us.

But just behind those storm clouds was something else. The bluest of blue skies just hoping to be seen on their day. The first day of summer!

The Boy played ball last night. I should have packed a sweater. It was very chilly outside last night. Even this morning feels like it is middle of fall and not the second day of summer. Thank goodness we had the early game and not the late one!

Back to baseball...we have now played four straight days of baseball. We are also on a winning streak. The Boy is also on a hitting steak, again. Two nights ago, we had a close game. The final score was 7 to 4. Last night the final score was 23 to 0. I prefer the closer games. I am probably weird like that. It is more exciting to watch a close game. It teaches the boys how to deal with stress. And it is a total confidence booster.  Other parents may not like it so close, but like I said, I am weird that way.

I hope everyone has a happy summer. Not to be a Debbie Downer, but enjoy it and make the most of it, for it will be gone before we know it.
