At long last the true KC summer has made its presence known. A short walk through the Farmer's Market and we were roasted. We didn't brave the pool until the late afternoon shade had set in and we could ensure no tiny feet would be blistered on hot concrete. All the while the last three chapters of the Long Winter were ironically hounding my thoughts, I had to know if the blizzards let up and Pa, Ma, Mary, Laura, Carrie and Grace would freeze to death! Finally I convinced my own sweltering party of four to listen as I dramatically read the exciting conclusion in which they do not starve, nor freeze - huge sigh of relief all around I'm sure.
