My kids would go year-round, for sure. It's hard even to get them to stay
home when they're sick (what a lovely change from the old days). Sometimes
we try not waking them if they're sick, but they don't like that!! They
tried to hold "SVS in Roslindale" every Saturday in the summer, but it
petered out after about a month -- mainly transportation issues.
