We also caved (reluctantly) yesterday and turned on the AC. Record heat here at 91 degrees. But I always hate having to shut the windows. Having them open makes us feel so connected to the natural world with the sound of birds and bees and cicadas. But I must admit, it is nice to have the AC option!
One of our favorite ways to beat the heat is popsicles on the porch. We got addicted to the orange creamsicles last year!


I REFUSE to turn the AC on before June. REFUSE. Drives Andy crazy :-) We turned it on for the first time this year on June 2, more because of the humidity than the heat. But it's not on now...the windows are open and I can hear the peepers and the crickets. Just the way I like it!

It has been in the upper 90's or 100 for the last five days! We have the A/C on and a box fan to get it under 85 upstairs. I keep the thermostat set to 81 upstairs but in the afternoon the A/C can't keep up. I miss the mountains!!

We will be having popsicles to celebrate the last day of school tomorrow!
