kicking it in the shade
Here is my oldest child, back in town for the summer, enjoying summer vacation the only way a kid should; kicking it in the shade with a cool drink, doing nothing particularly important but being totally absorbed in it all the same. I must admit a bit of jealousy as I sit indoors doing the things that grow-ups do for all but a few short weeks in the summer; work. I raise a cheer to the boy doing his summer best to forget all that is wintery and for shaking every ounce of responsibility from his very being. I live vicariously through you.
