Hello, Friends. How are you? Did you have a good week? We’re deep into protest season at our house. This morning, we marched with OUSD (Oakland Unified School District) Teachers, and our four youngest kids, to demand better wages, better resources, and smaller class sizes. We wore red (#redfored). Tomorrow, there’s the 3rd annual Women’s March. And Monday, Olive will be participating in an MLK march.
Also on the schedule this weekend? We’re doing a shift at ECAP (Emery Citizens Assistance Program) where we help serve meals and distribute groceries to anyone in need. Oh, and we’re joining friends for a delayed Christmas Eve party to welcome home their daughter — she just returned from a mission to Washington.
How about you? What’s happening at your house? I hear there’s a huge snow storm coming to the East Coast and more rain coming to the West Coast. Stay safe everybody.
