Lots happening here these days. I got some work with this amazing organization, which feels so very morally glamorous. When it rains, it pours (work) in the summer time when it comes to publishing life. It’s bittersweet because as much as I love my work, I also love hanging with the kids when they are out of school. At least – this summer – they have an alley full of kids to play with. In fact, I feel a tiny bit ignored when I do come home and they are frolicking with everyone else except me! But it’s a great thing – it reminds me of when I was young and could just bang out the back door and play with friends until the next meal time.

Here are some pix from ptrotto and inaseow instagram – Enjoy the long weekend everyone!

We are back to a more spring-like cold snap today, but a few days ago the temperatures soared up to the high 70s — and Ezra was BEYOND excited that our new alley neighbors wanted to create a lemonade stand with him. I think he was in heaven for a day – we all were. We stayed outdoors and planted things. And Ezra and his crew made enough money to pay back the parents for their supplies, and still have a few dollars in their pockets ! (I hear the ‘competition’ on the other side of the alley donated all their hard earned cash to a charity.) I hope the better weather returns soon!
