Goodbye Summer '07
I live for summer fun. We love to be outdoors as soon as Chicago's weather allows. This summer, though, we spent as much time indoors as we did outdoors. At first it was beautiful; the flowers bloomed and the birds came visiting. Then the cicadas invaded. It was so loud that you couldn't talk outside without yelling. It was so messy that you couldn't walk without crunching a cicada. Then the heat hit. The air conditioner ran and ran. Then the rains fell. Now the heat is back and the mosquitoes are so bad we cannot go in the backyard without getting attacked. All in all we had a fun summer. We took great pictures of all our adventures. We saw many friends we don't get to see during the school year. The girls learned to swim. Both love to bike ride. Overall, though, I'm really ready for fall. The leaves are already starting to change colors, so help is on the way.
