How to Handle a Summer

At first there is trepidation...oh no, here comes another Arizona summer with its 100+ days of 100+ degrees.  How will we ever survive?  (The real question really should be how the heck was this valley ever settled before air conditioning?)

But it takes you firmly in its grasp, and you learn to love it for what it is...HOT, which is perfect for swimming, so what's the harm in that?!  It also makes snow cones, popsicles, and ice cream more wonderful.

And then all too soon it is coming to an end! 
(But don't worry, it will be hot for a while yet.)

Better enjoy it while you still can!

Check out how James can part the waters.  How very biblical of him.

Hope you are enjoying your summer as much as this little girl is enjoying this swing!
Her favorite word is now the horse sound, FYI.
