Memorial Day Once More


My two favorite holidays are Memorial Day and Thanksgiving. Though it's not yet the summer solstice, today marks the start of summer in my mind. School is winding down, the weather is pretty spectacular, and there are pleasant distractions aplenty.

Today was pretty much a perfect day: woke up to the French Open, a Memorial Day parade through town, and Field Day events on campus. The afternoon was leisurely, with Mem Field buzzing with softball, frisbee, and sunbathing, followed by the annual Physics Phlotilla--in which students tried to navigate creatively engineered cardboard boats across the Science Center pond. Then an all-school picnic outdoors, capped by a dip in the waterfall for good measure.
