Summer.

There are pros and cons to summertime. Things I love, things I don’t. See if you can relate to any of these.

LOVE

Not putting winter coats on the kids

The whir of a lawn mower

Burgers on the grill

The smell of suntan lotion

Smores on the fire

Lightning bugs in a jar

Flipflops

The ice-cream truck

Sidewalk chalk

Picnics

Dining at an outdoor restaurant

Ice-cream cones

State Fair

Outdoor concerts

Flowers in bloom

Baseball games

Pedicures

DON’T

Sunburns

Bikinis

Applying sunblock to squirming children

Humidity

Flies and swatting them

Telling kids to close the door to keep those flies out

Explaining to those same kids why it’s not dark, but they still have to go to bed

Ants and mosquitos

Bugspray

Hearing ‘I’m bored’ from the kids

When it ends.
