Hello, Friends. How are you? Any fun plans for the weekend? We’ve got the usual kid stuff happening. June has a birthday party to go to. Oscar is babysitting for another family. Olive’s headed to a play. Betty has a rescheduled clarinet lesson. And on Sunday, Ben Blair is heading to San Diego for a few days. It’s for an accreditation conference — which reminds me, I haven’t updated you on Teachur in ages, but there’s tons of cool stuff happening. I’ll work on a post about it.
Other exciting things: Olive spent yesterday lobbying California politicians at the state capitol in Sacramento. Today, she helped organize the school walkout at the high school, and Oscar helped organize the National School Walkout at the middle school. The Walkout commemorates the 19th anniversary of the Columbine shootings, and is a call to end gun violence. I think it’s all happening right now as I type, and I’m sitting here hoping everything goes smoothly, and dying to hear a report when they get home.
