Summer Sun Where Are You?
So my calendar says that summer starts next Tuesday but the weather lately disagrees. I am ready for some summer sun! This spring was the 4th coldest and 2nd wettest in history, easily making it the WORST spring in Portland history.
Even my counter top weather station thinks that summer will never arrive, here is what it gave me for today's forecast!
A few weeks ago we had three consecutive days in the 70's. It was either wishful thinking on my part or I totally jinxed the rest of Portland but I took those nice days to mean that summer was on the way and I spent hours sorting through my daughter's room getting her closet and dressers organized for the impending sunshine and nice weather.
I took all her winter clothes out of the top dresser drawers and moved them to the bottom and moved all of her summer shorts and skirty skirts (as she calls them) up to the top. I took all the long sleeved shirts out of the closet and replaced them with her vast collection of girls dresses and tank tops. I boxed up her boots, against her cries that she NEEDED her bugga bugga rain boots and her sparkly cowgirl boots, and replaced them with her sandal (floppers as she likes to call her flip flops) collection.
During our three nice days she couldn't get enough of her shorty shorts, skirty skirts and dresses. I am pretty sure we went through at least three outfits a day. She must have known that this was going to be her only opportunity to wear her summer sun clothes and so she tried to get them all worn in our short nice weather period. (although, I hear rumors that we might get to 85 next week!!!!)
I can never get enough of her in her adorable summer outfits, she loves to spin and twirl in her skirty skirts and dresses. It is too cute!
I watch the weather every evening before bed just to see if I can get out one of her cute summer sun dresses to wear the next day. of course she insists on wearing shorty shorts under her dresses so that she can still slide and play in the dirt with all her friends at "school" without showing her panties.
COME ON SUMMER SUN!!! WE ARE READY AND WAITING!!!
