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!

Some links of note… 

Oprah featured Breonna Taylor on the cover of O Magazine, which is even more notable considering that it’s the first time in 20 years the magazine won’t picture Oprah herself.
