In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"but the break from school seemed short in its entirety. The trust of our parents, who both worked at Eastman Kodak, left my older brother, Chad, and me at home without supervision. Although our obedience and contentment, or most likely our timidness usually kept us close to home, our days were typically filled with activities that help capture the moments and memories of youth and growing up. At the ages of eleven and fourteen it was not difficult to entertain ourselves, especially with the new addition of a swimming pool. Our cousin Rob, who was fifteen, would often journey to our house on his BMX bike to enjoy our company, and of course, a swim."
