TBT: Bugs on Mayday 3

Today it was again hot, so no running, but we lathered up the sunscreen and sunhat to go outside to water a newly planted tree.  My daughter stood at the threshold of the door and refused to emerge from the house.  Anyone who knows her knows that she would rather be outside.  So this was […]
