I hate some websites. And yet, folks send me links to “read” them, and I intend to do so.

summer adventuring

Summer vacation so far has been action-packed. We began with our L.A. trip and that was so special. Our family hiked in the redwoods and took trips to San Francisco for the Cal Academy of Sciences and Japantown. Next, Emma had a three-week stint at A.C.E. camp (half day) with Hacienda Peralta. The 4th was spent watching the Oakland Municipal Band in Lakeside park. We visited the Alameda County fair, and Emma has swim lessons for all of July!

The next month will hopefully include some warm weather for free swim, homeschooler park days, and a more relaxed vibe. Sundays afternoons for concerts in the park are the leisurely style we live for. I am looking forward to lizarding a bit and laying down on a blanket to just look up into the trees.

spring in El Segundo

As soon as Emma finished fifth grade we headed south to stay with Grandpa/my Dad.

Grandpa and Barbara and babies!

We ate out a lot and I drank many El Segundo brews of course!

We took this handsome guy for walks with Barbara while his mommy Elayne was out of town.

Emma and aunt Joan

The pier is so fun to walk down but the weather was pretty foggy the whole time we were there and then the sun would come out at 5 pm.

We had the best time and I already want to go back. :heart:

We visited a really great Thai restaurant recently. I had pad thai without egg and I felt normal and happy in my tummy.

Glass frogs from the Academy of Sciences that I forgot to post earlier. I recently read that Frogcore is a thing. I laughed hard at that but I have always been a admirer from my beginnings.

Spring weather has arrived in Oakland and we have taken to sitting by the lake and enjoying the sunshine.

Trees are in bloom everywhere. 🙂

Emma has glasses. She has really wanted glasses and now she has a reason to wear them.

Jump rope star.

We had a little date before maiki head out of town. ❤️
