I am trying to savor to the fullest the last days of summer vacation. It is going by too quickly. In the book "Catch 22" one of the characters cultivates boredom (can't remember the character's name). This idea has always stuck with me. The nameless guy in the book never does anything exciting, because it makes time fly by. He would lie on his bunk doing nothing to try and slow down time, it never worked. Time continues to fly by. We aren't doing anything exciting, just trying to enjoy the dog days of summer. I am sucking up all the relaxation of nothing to do, unstructured days!!
Today each kid is having a friend over to swim.......it is pouring rain.
