My family is currently out having fun 4th celebrations, but I'm home nursing a fever. On the bright side, it's a day off work, so there are no logistical nightmares with this illness.
I made it through the neighborhood 4th Kid Fun Run, watched the neighborhood 5K, participated in the neighborhood bike parade, went to the neighborhood BBQ and fourth Fun Fair, watched the neighborhood Softball Game, came home and collapsed. Sure enough, I had a slight fever. So I'm resting.
I've managed to read a great book (Vonnegut's Man without a Country) and watch a great movie (Seven Up and 7 plus Seven)
But now I'm tired of resting. I don't rest well.
Vonnegut's book was amazing. I couldn't put it down. Thanks to the fever-mandated-rest, I got to read it all in one setting.
The 7-Up series should be required viewing for anyone interested in education/child development/race & class in society. A director follows a group of 14 British children from various backgrounds, visiting them every 7 years. The changes between the ages of 7 and 14 were striking. I've already got the next group of movies (21, 28, 35, 42, in my netflix queue)
Tomorrow daughter D. starts at Horse Camp.
Must go rest....
