The Saturday after Halloween was uneventful, and the kids were still pretty wired from the craziness of the night before. We had made paper plate masks with Bowden's class since they were not allowed to wear costumes (!?). Bowden wore his all day, and then Lucy wanted one. Bowden made one for Daddy- it is a buck.
Lucy made a kitty-cat...with teeth, of course.

Bowden added the red teeth to his mask.

I made this mask for Jacky, who liked to hold it but hated to wear it. It was the easiest thing to do ever- especially since all of the parts were cut out- the strings tied on, the pieces ready to glue.

Brother Job texted his sweetheart, although we didn't know it was his sweetheart taking him away from us.

Summer in Florida

This is our fourth summer in Florida- a number that amazes me.  I still don't feel at home here, although  I know my way around.  I don't feel completely out of place in the supermarket, but I have this suspicion that everyone knows I'm not from here, and they know that they don't know me.  That special kind of paranoia belongs to the homesick, and even while I acknowledge its foolishness, I still feel it.
Summers- I may have mentioned this before- are the worst. 
     It's partly an issue of comfort, or rather, of discomfort.  The long summer days are hot and sticky, the bugs are ravenous and abundant, the plants are vindictive with thorns and poison, and the air itself is attempting to decompose your body 37% faster than air in dryer climes.*  If there is a spring or pool to soak yourself in, it's fine, pleasant, even, because there are no ticks in the water, and you can usually avoid mosquitoes under the water.  To Florida's credit, there are any nu…
