We’re Having a Heat Wave

It was over 90 degrees today for the third day in a row. It’s April–in New Jersey. What’s up with the tropical weather?

It’s so hot, I’m wearing shorts. The temperature has to have a 9 in the front before I will do that.

But one person who is not wearing shorts is Adventure Boy. He’s dressed in his full Indiana Jones Halloween Costume regalia–complete with hat. It’s a dark brown outfit, just perfect for playing outside in 90-degree heat.

Adventure Boy is completely obsessed with Indiana Jones. He was over the moon when he learned that Indiana had been a Boy Scout–just like him! He gets the biggest grin on his face when I call him “Indiana Jones” instead of his real name.

So can someone please find a way for me to convince this child that it’s OK for Indiana Jones to wear shorts?
