Ahhh, summer vacation!
Summer is such a magical word...it evokes images like swimming, baseball, hot days and warm nights. To a kid, summer is that golden ring that always seems just out of reach and then one day it is suddenly here!
As an adult, summer isn't such a magical word anymore because life and work continues no matter what the outside temperature is or what the calender says...
But that doesn't mean we can't get out there and make the most of the daylight, right?
We only live once and I don't want to waste a single day (although I have been known to waste days and I am not proud of that fact...)
So with that thought in mind, I took my boys to their first minor league baseball game this season. It was a day game and we got to pick our seats, so we sat behind home plate hoping to catch a foul ball or two. Although some foul balls came close, we didn't manage to get one...
We stayed until the very end, which was a first for us. Through the years we have been to baseball, football and hockey games and always left before the end for one reason or another.
But they really enjoyed the baseball game and we will definitely be going back!
This past weekend I did not have the boys so I ventured to the apartment pool by myself. Everyone seems to know each other there and I always feel like the odd man out, but I made my mind up to introduce myself to a few folks per visit.
Last year I was in no frame of mind to be social, but now that I am officially single, I feel more comfortable mingling with folks I don't know.
Don't worry, I hope to have more actual NASA related stuff here real soon...
