Lovely, very mild. Chapel in morning. Sang. Fun. Review in English. Tests in history and Latin. Finished all lessons and didn’t have much to do in afternoon. Guess what? Helen found out that Clay is in love with Ella! Needless to say, Helen doesn’t especially like it, although she insists she is not in love with Clay anymore. Practiced piano in afternoon. Then went out and played with  Helen and Barbara. So lovely outside. The world feels so near and — oh rather as if it were embracing you with all its greenness and beauty. The trees with their new leaves are like fairy flags flying in the night breeze and their shadows on the ground make strange patterns. Play practice till 10:00. Mom entertained three ladies tonight — some committee. I sold three tickets to the play. Be glad when it’s over.
