It was very hot when we arrived at Melissa's (90 degrees F). Melissa teaches kindergarten and it was so hot that her school dismissed early. Most of the schools here in Waverly, Iowa don't have air-conditioning. Thankfully we were able to go home to Melissa's house which has AC. She also had a friendly bear that fanned us to keep us cool.
We have good company here at Melissa's house. She has her old dollhouse that she used as a child that her nieces enjoy playing with now. We found some friends just our size to enjoy a very large pie with!
It's Labor Day weekend here in America which means picnics/barbecues, celebrating workers and the end of summer. Most people have tomorrow off from work and there's no school tomorrow either. We helped Melissa prepare a spinach salad for her to take to a neighborhood picnic/barbecue. The salad had croutons and a strawberry vinaigrette dressing! Yum!
