so far, summer is: sun, rain, blueberry popsicles, bowls of popcorn on the deck, running around the yard in circles and sidewalk chalk in the afternoon. on a day last week, it was backyard time with kati dimoff and her crew. we climbed tiny trees, rode scooters and ate pancakes at a table for 12. and yesterday, as i was watching indy and sawyer lock each other out of the house, “accidentally” spray each other with water from the hose, crash their bikes into each other and scream like wild animals from the porch, i remembered that summer is not always just blueberry popsicles and sunshine.
