I love getting these kinds of emails. We're sitting here, enduring the start of summer. Today was the first day of our seven-day fireworks booth, a wonderful fund-raiser that requires teens' greatest fans to sit out in the heat all day long. Anyway, in the midst of today's sunshinyness, I got an email from my dad. It contained a couple of photos from back in December, when I visited him and my stepmom in Iowa. At the time, Iowa was covered in many inches of snow, and I tried my hand at sledding down the hill of their backyard. It was fun.
