Have you read Connie Shakalis’ essay What I Really Know About Summer Nights: Learning From the Family Next Door on AARP Bulletin Today yet? If you haven’t, you should – it’s a lovely account of enjoying summer through the delighted eyes of her neighbor’s children. Makes me think of summer when I was a kid – “Be home by dark!” takes on a whole new meaning when it’s light till 9! My cousins and I would ride our bikes all over town, coming home only for ice cream money and a quick “Hey Mom!”
What about you – what’s your favorite summer memory?
