The Weekly Digest

We visited India for a few weeks back in 2013 and I’ve been revisiting some of our photos recently while thinking about the crisis the country is facing. The news is grim and my heart is with those there and those who are concerned about family from abroad. This virus has taken so many.

Wishing everyone a peaceful, restorative weekend…

Aron sent me the link to today’s The Daily podcast this morning—an episode on “The Agony of Pandemic Parenting“—and it actually felt good to listen in comiseration this time. I’m not sure that a month ago that would have been the case. What a difference a week of school drop-offs makes. Monday morning, their first day back at their school in nearly 400 days, was greeted by all with such joy. The kids were excited to see their friends and teachers (Hudson remarked how each one’s hair looked different than on the screen), to play at recess, and to get out before lunch. We went out for tacos and Jarritos and cheers’d to a great first day back. We biked that day and the roads were filled with families. It was like the whole city suddenly woke up from a long nap. There are so many reasons to still be cautious and vigilant, but it felt really great.

Some other personal highs and lows this week? We took that hike last weekend and it was probably the most ambitious one we’ve done with the kids. (They did great!) We went all the way from the slopes around Muir Woods down to Stinson beach and back—around 1500 feet down (and up) over a 7-mile roundtrip!

Hudson got his floss stuck under a loose tooth and when I went to help him, I accidentally pulled out the tooth! And on Wednesday, we let him and his friend bike downtown together for the first time alone. Unfortunately, when he came back to their bikes, his was gone. (How crummy is it to steal a kid’s bike!?)

Skyler requested to go to a week of horse camp with the city this summer and somehow I got my hand on the buzzer fast enough to get in this year! Summer camp registration time is upon us and nothing spikes adrenaline quite like it.

Finally, today, we will drive up to Tahoe to check on the cabin and get it ready for warmer weather.

What will you be doing this weekend? Have a good one. Some links of note…
