It's the first Monday of summer vacation. That right there is enough to put anyone in a good mood. But even better - around here - it's the first day the counselors are at the playground.
We have a playground across the street and down two lots from us. During the summer (from the end of June till the beginning of August) the township employs teenagers to play games and do crafts with the kids at the playground (and playgrounds all throughout the township.)
So - that's where the kids are. And will be every day that we don't have something else planned. How fun!
