Nice, hot, like summer. Left my glasses and book at practice last night. Cummins kept them for me. Bobby, Cary and Grandma gave a skit from the play in elementary chapel. Another test in English. Made 96 and a half on Latin exam. Mom went to P.T.A. It was cloudy after school and sprinkled a bit. Took tickets to both Lanes, accompanied by Helen and Barbara. When Helen went to her music lesson, Barbara went home with me to see “Wakin” (Mother). Then we went walking again. At first visit to Mother Lane’s Barbara took a dancing fit and nearly danced the rug away — at the same time yelling like a little Indian. Once she turned around and fell over a stool, smack on her face. So funny. Rained about suppertime. World so green and fresh. Practiced from 6:30 to 10:00. Ah, tomorrow.
