Despite not officially being summer yet, we are at the beginning of our second heat wave of the year. It is expected to be so hot that some of the area schools are dismissing students early. My daughter's school isn't currently on the list but today is their last full day of school anyway. They only have three half days left after today. While I do love the summer, I like it when it gradually gets warmer. It sucks when it goes from 60 to 90 overnight. (Note to self: Buy cheap sunglasses. The sun glare hurts during the drive to/from work.) If we're lucky, this will be a short heat wave. I'd like it to be over by next weekend. That is the date of our dance recital. Recital sucks when it's a million degrees out. It can get hot again after recital.
