The heat comes suddenly to Chicago. School finishes for twelve long weeks! My daughter begins ballet and tap lessons, and T-ball for the summer and my son starts T-Ball league. We swim, we play, we ride bikes, we picnic, we swim, we play, and we jump on the trampoline. The children are having a wonderful summer. The baby turns one this month with a small family party. She is becoming quite the little girly girl! My son excels immensely in T-Ball league! My daughter is loving tap and really good!
