The sun was shining. Temps were in the upper 50’s. Slight breeze blowing. And the kids were relishing in it! Could it be that Spring really is here?
We had a jumble of 10 children from the ages of 7 to 11 over this afternoon. They were inside the house for, maybe, 10 minutes. The rest of the time it was all outside. They played kickball, catch, tag, and of course, chase the girls.
It never occured to me to find the sunscreen. There was so much sun today, there are some real sunburns. It’s been so long.
“What’s wrong with my face?”
“You actually got a sunburn today.”
“Is it summer?”
“No. It’s the beginning of spring.”
Finally, as everyone is snuggling down into their pillows I hear, “My neck hurts.”
“That’s the sunburn. Did you enjoy the day?”
