One of the local churches is having a vacation Bible school that our children are attending this week. They have had a blast. The times of the classes are 5:00 to 7:00 in the evening. It has been good for us too.
We have dropped them off and gotten to go do some shopping without putting them (and us) through the hassle. Shopping yesterday consisted of going to Costco and doing some research on a new printer. Then, we sat in the little cafÃ© out front and ate a frozen yogurt. Today we went to Sam’s and purchased the printer we looked at last week and had pretty much decided on back then. We were just doing comparison shopping to see what else might be available.Â We also spent a good bit of time enjoying a frozen cappuccino in their cafÃ©.
Yesterday we started reading a book together. We continued that today. So far we are 3 chapters into The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I fall into the geek element of human population. My wife has serious leanings that way. This book is supposedly a must read for geeks. I don’t really read much fiction, but am giving it a try. Not too bad so far. Review to follow when it is done.

Life is very cool when you know that your kids are safe and you can grab some alone time, even if it just for a book and coffee…
I read Hitchhiker’s Guide a long time ago and remember little… so I will interested in reading your review.
It is very nice knowing that they are in good hands. Though we have friends who can watch the kids, we rarely take the opportunity. We should do that more.
The Hitchhiker’s Guide has been mildly entertaining so far. I would rank it (with the exception of the language) right up there with The Hobbit. A great read for a 12 year old. I guess I don’t read enough fiction to know that the point is to be entertained and not to learn.
