Summer break is right around the corner and my 8 year old is counting down the days.
reminds me how precious those summer months are.
This summer, I'll be sure to let my daughter run a little wild with her best friend at her side. They'll
solve mysteries on the go with a backpack full of bugspray, pb&j sandwiches and a magnifying glass.
'I have so got an ambition,' Trixie told him with a toss of her head. 'It's all settled. Honey and I are going to be private detectives; aren't we, Honey?'
Trixie Belden was Nancy Drew's younger and scrappier crime-fighting counterpart. Her life was filled with brothers, dogs and horses, and she and her best friend Honey Wheeler spent a lot of time running around in cut-offs, moccasins, and camp shirts tossed over swim suits as they tracked down petty thieves.
It's still a pretty great summer uniform.
