Springtime...

may be over here in Tucson...

For all my family in places such as Boston and Colorado where it was even snowing just last weekend, we have now been in the 90s for the past few days. Currently on my computer it says 93 - yes that is hot. We went to the splash park today and played in the water. The kids are switching to their early summertime wake up schedule that seems to happen every year. The boys have sweaty heads, we have turned on the fans and only sleep under sheets, we have put on sunscreen lots of times, and my kids say things like, "Call a taxi, I can't walk any farther." or "I will need a 100 drinks of water." or "Turn on the cold air - I'm melting!" Now this happens every year but it is still super hot. It will still go up and down a bit into the 80s I am sure but then up into the 100s when it is really summer. So while you all get tired of the snow and cold by March and April, you can see that we get tired of the heat by August and September. The weather really wore on me last year. I am going to try to deal with it better this year and I am also very glad that we will have a long fun vacation in the middle so we can visit family and escape the heat.

It is funny that you just wrote this because I have been telling Dave that I would be happy to live in the desert and deal with the 100 degree heat. Anything to escape this never ending cold! Guess the grass is always greener...I will have to deal with the cold better next year too...
