I can feel summer tapping at my window: salt air, rushing waves, sunshine, coconut, lemonade, storms...all of that.
It's not play time for us, though. It's graduation-and-getting-ready-to-launch-this-Girl-to-college time. It's Permanent Honor Roll and Top Ten Banquets, graduation rehearsals, doctor and dentist appointments, phone calls to college health centers and housing and dining offices (I may write a book) and all that kind of bustling time.
Unfortunately, there is just no way to slow it all down, it seems.
