Snapshots from Green Victoria

First day of summer, 2008

"Daddy, look!"

Annie scooped up the tree frog from off the top of the mailbox and shoved her hands to my face.

Corb made a face. "I hate frogs."

"You don't!"

"well, maybe I don't mind looking at them, but I hate touching them. Wash your hands when you get upstairs, okay?"

Last night was all about Ashes.

Theo was at a friend's house for a birthday party, so Corb and I had her all to ourselves.

We took her out to Friendly's for supper.

We rented scary movies about seances and vampires.

We even bought a birthday cake the celebrate the birthday of Edward Cullin, who turned 107 on Thursday, apparently (Ashes is not certain about this.)

I like summers. Things seem to move more slowly during the summer. I don't have to worry about school projects or rehearsals. I don't have to worry about lunch tickets or getting up ridiculously early in the morning.

Life is good, especially because I'm not a tree frog stuck on a mailbox.
