Season Opener

For many of us, Memorial Day marks the start of summer. That's well and good for the adults, but if you are a boy the summer season is officially opened when your Mama consents to a run in the sprinkler. Conveniently, these two days coincided yesterday. After I cut the grass in the backyard (this time I took action before it resembled a pasture!), I set up the backyard sprinkler and turned the boy loose to face its wrath.
The sprinkler game involves a practice lacrosse stick, drafted into temporary use as a sword.
Our hero valiantly faces down the exploding water.
He emerges unscathed on the other side of the sprinkler. But can he return alive?
How dare you doubt our hero! The sprinkler put up a valiant battle, but JT was finally able to declare victory.

Well done on the sprinkler vanquishing, JT!
