Feels Like Spring

I can't believe how warm it is today! It is 60 degrees! Unfortunately I don't think it will last since it's kind of supposed to snow tomorrow. I do have my doubts about that, but I'm sure it will be cooler.

Because it was so nice out, Aaron and his (girl)friend Nora picked Riley, Kit, and I up from school and took us to the park. They brought us play clothes so we didn't have to wear our silly school jumpers. I was really surprised that Aaron planned this. He rarely leaves the house or even goes outside. No, I don't think he's a vampire. I know he isn't an alien either since I asked him. But I had to know why he suddenly had a change of heart. But, he being Aaron, didn't give me an answer. He just shrugged and said it was a nice day.

Anyway I wasn't going to let that distract me too much. Riley and I swung on the swings and Kit played on the monkey bars. Nora brought cookies and lemonade for a snack. Afterwards Riley and I talked Aaron into playing catch with us. There were a few other people in the park by then, but I didn't pay much attention to them... at first.

You should know that Riley can't throw a ball straight for the life of her. I didn't mind diving and running to catch her wild throws, but, of course, Aaron wouldn't. When Riley threw the ball to him it went way to his left towards the swings.

There was a college-aged guy pushing his little sister on the swings. What was the chance that he would know Aaron? I would have thought zero, but I would have been wrong. Aaron froze when the guy called his name. I asked Riley if she knew the guy, but she didn't and Aaron still hadn't acknowledged him.

Finally Aaron picked our ball up and nodded his head to the younger guy. He asked how Aaron was; Aaron said he was fine. The guy asked if Aaron wanted to hang out sometime; Aaron said maybe.  Then Aaron tossed the ball to me (Riley can't catch a ball to save her life either) and walked away. Riley and I looked at each other and went after him. Of course I asked Aaron who the guys was and of course Aaron wouldn't tell me. Luckily Nora was there and said: "Didn't you used to tutor him?"

Aaron didn't deny it, but he wouldn't say anything either. Kit, who had been digging in the sand, joined us then. It was decided it was time to leave. It would have been nice to have a drama-free day, but the more time I spent with Aaron the more I can figure out about him. I hope he'll take us to the park again.


  1. Hi, this is Summer.

    Emily, that's really strange! It sounds like something bad happened in their tutoring situation, but I can't imagine what would cause that reaction. It seems a little extreme if the guy had just... I don't know... failed math in spite of Aaron's help or something. It seems pretty serious.

    I'm glad you got to play outside, though! It sounds like a beautiful day. Whatever made Aaron have a change of heart, I hope it happens again, in spite of the weirdness.


  2. Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun at the park, we loved going to the park with our cousins, it was so much fun to play and enjoy our time together.

    I wonder what happened to Aaron and his 'friend' or unfriend, the other dude seemed to want to spend time with Aaron, leaves you wondering ..


  3. It became really warm here too a week ago or so. Everyone in my school was suntaning on the table tennis tables! But today when I woke up there was snow! Weather is funny sometimes.

  4. Summer,

    You're right, Aaron did tutor the guy, but he still wouldn't tell me what happened. But don't worry, I will find out eventually!


    The other guy did seem to like Aaron, so I'm thinking Aaron must be the one with the problem.


    It's so nice to meet you! I look forward to reading your own blog.
