I can’t believe it’s already that time of year!  We’ve had such a mild and lovely summer, but now that Reunion is here, the 100 degree days are becoming more and more frequent to ensure we all enjoy spending this entire week outside.  It’s amazing how we always adapt to the temperatures, allergies, and bedtimes.  Anything goes, it’s reunion, right?

I say that because it’s something that falls out of my mouth almost every day this week. Conversations typically go a little like this:

Kid 1:  “Mom, can I have a coke?” (11:00 p.m.)

Mom:  “Sure, it’s Reunion.”

Kid 2:  “Mom, can I borrow some clothes from (any other kid out there) because I’m soaked from the water balloon fights.”

Mom:  “Sure, it’s Reunion.”

Kid 3:  “Mom, can I do the Fun House 29 times in a row?”

Mom:  “Sure, it’s Reunion.”

Listen carefully this week.  I promise you’ll hear a mom or dad or both utter this phrase more than one time.  It’s a week of sweaty, nocturnal, small town bonding.  What could be better?  Especially when anything goes!
