More Daylight!

It is no longer getting dark at night, and we're still in the stages of getting used to the long hours of daylight. This morning I woke up and was thinking, "It must be late" because it was so bright out. It was only 4 a.m. I went upstairs and Denver was sleeping on the couch, fully dressed. He must have woken up and thought it was time to get up too! Last night I put Aurora to bed and an hour later, at 10 p.m. the neighbor kids were up and outside yet. We find it harder to go to bed at our normal times because the signal of darkness isn't there. We look at the clock and suddenly realize it is nearly midnight though it is still light out (Or, like the neighbors, our kids are still outside playing at 10:00!). We still have a month to go till the longest day of the year, which will just about be the 1 year anniversary of my blog. What a year!

I don't know that I could handle daylight that long. I have a hard enough time with the longer days here in Michigan. I think it would be good to have the sunrise and set consistantly at the same time but unless I decide to move to the equator that will never happen for me.

I admit, it does get annoying at times (an 10:30 pm sunset last night & 5:00 am sunrise!) On the other hand, the long days offset the long darkness in the winter, and I love being able to make the most of the gorgeous summer days!
