The boy and the sun flare

A shift in his sleep patterns is coinciding with these lovely, summer-ish evenings. So he’s been able to stay up a couple of nights during this holiday weekend, one to catch fireflies* and another to enjoy ice cream on the deck. The best part is that he seems to have grown out of the grumpy temper tantrums that would ensue after cases of even slight sleep deprivation in the past. He had a busy day today and maintained his cheerfulness throughout.

*Although the pesky critters didn’t make a showing.
