Summertime: A season of long hot days, ice cream, friends, travel, and new experiences. The sun stays up longer than usual and even when the moon comes out, people are unbothered. Many people share all sorts of different experiences that happen in these warm, relaxed months. Everything from riding bikes, getting to know new people, or even participating in something like marching band can fill up the days and give us great new stories to share \[or not share] when the weather starts to cool down and the leaves start to change. These warm months often have great things happen, but sometimes things don’t go quite according to plan. Sometimes people have different plans, people get sick, or a parade doesn’t go as smoothly as one might’ve hoped. But, with a little patience and care, things might end up even more spectacular than initially hoped for.
