Between graduation and summer school there is a brief break, time to celebrate the passing river of time as marked by birthdays, time to attend book and boat launches.
Friday brought an all day flooding downpour that created rivers in the lawns of the college.
Marking the passage of another year swimming in the river of life were two in the house at three and twelve. The twelve year old discovered that he is now an adult ticket for the new Avengers movies here on Pohnpei, but not yet sufficiently adult to have a FaceBook account.
The smaller one above is soon to turn one, while his father marks his graduation from his associate’s degree program.
Saturday morning brought clearing skies and the release of the Maps of Micronesia children’s puzzle book.
The above puzzle page caused my daughter to realize that Kapingamarangi is farther from Pohnpei than is Kosrae. Kapingamarangi now has some meaning for her as Kapinga is the ancestral home of her sailing friends.
Saturday afternoons are sailing afternoons.
A first class student prepares to go out with a third class instructor. Two freeloaders hope for a chance at a free sail, but to no avail.
After a brief joggle in town, time to get out and relax with friends. The usual press of marking papers is gone with the passing of the spring term.
