The unofficial beginning of summer

Memorial Day 2011

There can’t be anything more magical for a parent than seeing your child discover the joys of summer. Today we celebrated Memorial Day by visiting my parents-in-law. They ran out and bought a little plastic kiddie pool and a swim suit for my daughter, so that she could have her first time in a pool, right there in the backyard. We carefully placed her in the lukewarm water as everyone crowded around her with cameras. She grinned up at all of us, squinting in the sunshine and splashing in the water. Her joy was obvious as she felt the water with her tiny hands while the hot sun shone on her shoulders. We don’t have any pool toys for her yet so we handed her a little paper cup that she could use to scoop up water and play.

Here’s to summer and to the magic of rediscovering this beautiful time of year through the eyes of a child!
