The days get warmer and longer still. The evenings are breezy and quiet. We try to put the kids to bed at a reasonable hour these days which is hard to do as it doesn't get dark until 9:15pm. But we feel it's important so we work hard at getting them to sleep by 8pm. If Hattie takes a nap there is no getting her to sleep before 9:30-10pm. If there is time, the littlest lady and Collin and I like to sneak to the front lawn or the Capitol lawn and wrap in a blanket and look up at the swaying trees and darkening sky. We love being outside. Our neighborhood is enchanting. The roses are taking their turn to bloom now and the colors and abundance are dream-like.
