Flies in the house

Wet swimtrunks on the floor

Lightning bugs

Sleepy boys that aren’t up before 9 am

Popsicles melting faster than kids eat them

Crocs piled by the door

Groceries consumed in days

Neighbor kids ringing the doorbell

Protests at bedtime

Protests that mention it’s still daylight

The ice cream truck and mad-dashes for money

Faded sidewalk-chalk artwork

Groans over the mention of sunscreen

Dinner on the grill

And finally…

Wondering if its bad to sleep before the kids do!
