Summer is here! It started on Tuesday at 12:16 pm, Chicago time, for those of you keeping track of such things. Me? I am apparently one of those who “keeps track of such things”.

And of course, summertime means that school is out! But Ordinary Mommy is tricky! She disguises school as a celebration of summer and a scavenger hunt to the park.

Here is what Middle Daughter saw in our backyard:

And here is Oldest Daughter’s completed scavenger hunt page:

The funny thing is that Oldest Daughter didn’t really want to go for a walk. But once she started finding things on the scavenger hunt page, everything changed.

Youngest Daughter didn’t want to fill out the sheets, so she wrote a poem:

She stopped writing before she had recorded the entire verse. In its entirety, it goes like this:

How do you know I love daffodils?
I just love, love, love the daffodils!
How do I know I love daffodils?
I just love, love, love the daffodils!

(According to Ordinary Spouse, they were actually day lilies. But that’s ok.)
