Having a five year-old son is the peak of my fatherly experience so far, my boy is something else – he was a big kid for his age, however you’d never know he was only five years old if you saw him! The boy definitely has his father’s genes, as he looks about twice his age; He’s a sweet kid, and a gentle giant among his class, What I truly like is that he has the same wonder and intrigue with outer section that I’ve had. We like stargazing at night! My spouse enjoys our family outings to quiet, remote places far from the city lights. We can get the best view of the evening sky that can be found near town. As much as we like relaxing in the back of the truck and seeing the celestial bodies overhead, we often find ourselves having to pack it in early due to the intense heat! See, we live in the south – it’s warm in these parts from April to November, realistically, so an excellent cooling system is critical to maintain fantastic indoor air quality levels, and being outside is definitely something that must be done sparingly, and you have to have proper A/C ready to go to cool off from the heat; Even at night, the heat here can be pretty unforgiving combined with the natural humidity. My son loves to stargaze, however he also loves being in an air conditioned area far from the humidity, heat and bugs of the outdoors, and I don’t blame him – stargazing is far more fantastic when it’s cool outside, as we can focus on finding constellations and other heavenly bodies. When it’s much colder outside, we can even have a fire going, or use a portable space heater to keep our “observation deck” nice and warm. If it gets too cold, we can climb into the truck cab and turn on the heat to warm up! No matter how we endure the occasionally uncomfortable temperatures, my son and I still make the time to like our favorite hobby.
