School is almost out, the sun is shining, and parking becomes scarcer by the day. What are your summer plans? I’ve heard the nieces talking about camps and dance recitals and lessons galore. No rest for the young and decidedly unweary. So happy shuttle-service season to all you moms and pops.
The last day of school always reminds me of hanging out on Lindsay Medeiros’s back porch, making art out of sticks or some other such craft project of our own invention. And being bored. In retrospect, I gotta say, I kind of miss being bored.
It was a very special Father’s Day for Chris and Jamie Anne Greene, who welcomed Christopher Shannon Greene Junior, our newest little Edgartonian. I swear from the pictures I have seen, this kid was born with a smile on his face. Congratulations to this happy family.
Janet Hathaway found some time to get away for a bit on a trip to Aspen, Colorado, with Ross. Now it’s back to work, refreshed and ready to welcome the onslaught of summer.
