Summertime, Summertime...sum, sum, summertime...the hurry, hurry, hurry of May is behind us. Endless summer days of freedom from routine have arrived. Wisconsin has 3 months of summer. Which seems like forever in the early days of June. Lovely June weddings are taking place, and kids with strange white feet and legs are starting to go barefoot. In June you roll in the new green grass, ride your bicycle everywhere, and long for the first swim in those icy spring fed lakes. June is our transition month. Warmer than spring, but still cooler than summer. The days are lazy or not, filled with popcicles and playing outside into the dusk of evening. Fireflies begin to light up their little corner of the night as we play tag, and Blind Mans Bluff, Statue Maker and Hide and Go Seek in the dark corners around the houses. Oh surely, it will last forever, this carefree feeling of childhood. Looking back...a day in June, a neighbors pony tied to graze in the field behind our house and 3 horse crazy sisters..ages 2, 13 and 6.
