Ah, summer. It is June, after all. How the heck that happened, I’ll never know. I could swear that only yesterday it was January. Anyway, Kristen Lamb shared summertime memories of her youth in a post this afternoon and it made me smile. I remembered some of the same years she described, but I remembered them through the eyes of a child instead of the eyes of a young woman. Sure, by the time I was five, the Russians were no longer our enemies, but I still remember slip ‘n’ slides, spending more time outside than in, and never locking our doors. Ever.
