Top Picks This Week

The Weekly Digest

We wrapped up a very full camp week today… at-home clay camp, zoom ballet, virtual Spanish, and two days of swim lessons. Somehow they all came at once. I’m looking forward to a more relaxed time next week—and a return to the beaches of Lake Tahoe soon. I’m hoping to go on some bike rides, a float down the river, and on some mountain hikes. Hope you have some fun in store!

The Weekly Digest

How’s everyone doing? We’re still trying to wrap our heads around the news that we’re not going back to school… (even if we knew it was coming). Our kids were in a full-immersion Spanish school, so we’re wondering how we can possibly replicate that experience at home. On the other hand, Hudson has been doing a virtual Robotics camp this past week and he loved it—and it was helpful to see how engaged he can be on camera when the subject is exciting. Next week, Skyler is going to do a little ballet camp online for a couple of hours a day, so we’ll see how that compares.

Last week, we all went to Lake Tahoe for vacation—such a nice change of scene—and celebrated Hudson’s ninth birthday. I posted photos on Instagram, if you’d like to see.

Have a great weekend! Some links…

Aron had taken the next 10 days off for our summer travel, so we are all taking a break in Lake Tahoe. Summer is my favorite season here, and it will be a good lead up to next weekend’s special celebrations: Hudson turns nine! And Aron’s parents celebrate 50 years of marriage!

I’m doing my best to come up with some fun surprises for our fella, since he can’t be with all his friends. I don’t think a night goes by when Aron and I don’t repeat to each other some thing he has said or done that day with the conclusion “he’s just the sweetest.” We would, of course, love him regardless, but it’s true! I don’t know that I can imagine a kinder boy. And he’s bright and inquisitive and fun to boot. I hope we can make his birthday special. So far he’s asked for mom’s cottage-cheese pancakes for breakfast and daddy’s “best-burgers-ever” for dinner, so I’d say we’re off to a good start. That, we can do.
