Back then, summers lasted. From the frantic chants of "School's out, school's out, teacher let the monkeys out" on through the majestic blue-sky mornings when you stepped outside barefoot and felt the dew-damp grass between your toes, to the occasional ecstasy of a tree-snapping, duck-drowning rip-snorter of a thunderstorm, summer rolled on and on and on, a great comforting river of time, so long and so wide and so embracing that worries disappeared around the bend.

Our little man is perfectly healthy, cute as a button and he sleeps far better than we were expecting. Getting him to smile is officially my new favorite hobby. However, having a month-old baby really cuts into any free time that takes place outside of my yard.

We kept up the frenzy until we ran out of things to blow up, then gorged ourselves on the picnic fare every family had prepared. Hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, beans, all washed down with pop or Kool-Aid and followed by a bowl of ice cream or a giant wedge of watermelon or a handful of homemade cookies, everything tasting so good that you wanted to keep eating until, like a cherry bomb, you just exploded.
