It's not quite summer officially in our neck of the woods, but we are feeling the heat.
There is something about hot weather that brings me right back to my childhood.
Countless memories of innocence and simplicity:
· Soaking ourselves with a garden hose immediately to cool off
· A blow-up kiddie pool did have its advantages, even if it was so tight for two kids
· No fences- we knew our boundaries and our neighbors knew us
· And the very best: a homemade visqueen slip-and-slide we could glide on for miles, or so we thought
These are great memories of my early years. I can't bring them back, but I love that I can hold on to them.
