vain attempts to reign in bedtime

We are vainly trying to get the girls to go to bed at a decent time. Ever since we moved to OremĀ over a year ago, their bedtime has been 10 or 11. It is crazy.

Today I took them to the park. The first thing Mary did was slide down the slide into a giant ice puddle. The second slide she tried ended the same way. I have pictures of her bewildered look as she got up from the slide. Lydia “ice skated” on the playground ice. Neither of them appear tired, and it’s 10am. I guess I’ll just have to start making them run laps around a track or something.
