You can tell it's summer time.
Signs that it's summer in Dixie:
The city pool is open.
The mall is bustling with pre and now teens.
The line at ChikFilA is twice as long as normal.
The city ballpark is packed with kids, parents, cars parked on the grass.
The mercury is above 90 degrees, with the birds panting already because it's HOT.
There are kids everywhere in our little town, one pulled out in front of me on his bicycle, in traffic, so beware, show caution and keep your eyes opened for safety.
There are yard sales in every neighborhood on Friday and Saturday during summer.
Celebrate because before you know it, the old school supply list will be posted at the local Wal-Mart. The big yellow buses will be blocking traffic and life will be back to normal, for us, even though the kiddos will not be happy about it. School now goes for ten months out of the year.
Ahhh, the good old days!
