Earth Day

This morning and early afternoon featured classic Earth Day weather in Pittsburgh - cool and wet. But, as you can see from the sky in Emily's photo of her sister's south side, by sunset the skies were clear, and the late afternoon was beautiful for a trip to the playground. I am such a wimpy parent about homework on evenings like this, when it seems that being outside just can't get all the time it deserves. Tonight I have given up on Emily working on her book report - we are saving it for Sunday afternoon, apparently, given our schedule between now and then. I'm hoping for cold rain on Sunday, beginning about 4 pm., lasting until that book report is done. Even if it is on Shel Silverstein, and he does deserve better.
