Silver Lining Saturday on a Sunday, part XLII

Well now, been a busy week! I haven't been around the blog much, but I can't let a weekend go by without pointing out some silver liningness!

First of all, it's the first full week of summer break for the school kids. Last week just sort of felt like a couple of "teacher workday" days or something, but this week felt more like the real thing. And I'm happy to report that Chaco, Wolfgang and Meego have all been playing OUTSIDE for, like, HOURS at a time with their friends. Shooting hoops and kick-the-can and stuff. No whining that they're bored, no attempts to camp out in front of video games and/or TV, just a little complaining when we tell them it's time to come in. Has Norman Rockwell taken over the neighborhood, or what?

And today? Today we went FISHING. Meego's idea. Beautiful day to just sit by the lake and fish and people watch.... I realized that the whole time we were there, I didn't see any cell phones or bratty kids or snooty snobs. So today's fishing adventure makes the SLS photo of the week:

Well, I couldn't go breaking out the electronics and spoil it for everyone else now, could I?

And speaking of blogging, I don't spend a whole lot of time on facebook either, but doncha just love when you get a friend request from some long lost chum? Granted, I get some friend requests that I can take or leave (present company excepted OF COURSE), but today I got a COOL one from an old high school friend I just lost track of over the years.

Work's been busy but fun. Best wishes to all my students taking the LSAT tomorrow!

It's so cool when kids rediscover the joy of playing outside. I hope it lasts!

I wants to go to the lake, I'll skip the fishing but the lake would be fun.

*sigh* I envy your summer. And your lake. It's cold and rainy here, and I haven't gotten out of the city in far, far too long...

Glad you guys are enjoying it though!
