When there's nearly a week of 70 degree days . . .
you just go and have a cook out.
Big brother brought home the meat and vegetables.
Mama made the marinade, and us girls stuck them on
the skewers. Because when you get these days on
the prairie you gotta take them as spring.
First spring evening: talking and laughing with brothers
and sisters and Mama and Daddy in The Nook.
This is home.
