What's New? 2007-09-01

  It's running club time at the kids' elementary school. Here's Isaac with Alejandro. They made 16 circuits, a mile.

Lila pounds out a mile herself. She's no slouch.

Isaac & Eugenia on the play structure after lunch. That thing has done more for their development than anything else at school. It's so much better than the new structures they're littering around San Francisco.

  One of the kids take a photo of me in the office. Can you tell that the kids have been tossing everything on my desk? Lila gets the mail from the box, pulls out what's hers, and tosses the rest over there. It's an avalanche waiting to happen.

The same miscreant cameraperson snaps Rose chatting whilst cooking.

These are the lead-covered recalled Thomas the Tank Engine toys that we're about to mail back to the company.

  Oh, no! My car is throwing an engine error. (Turns out it's a mis-installed gasket on their last repair. Costs me nothing but time. Meh.)

From my vantage point of the office, here's Isaac, doing homework. Because the two folding chairs are out I'm guessing the grandparents have just left.

  After the kids' Hebrew School we head over to Ocean Beach for a sunny afternoon of play.

The goats are back in San Francisco, chowing down on the greenery at Laguna Honda. (I read something in the paper about this being a replacement flock, after the original bunch were killed in a truck roll-over accident.) The kids absolutely love hanging around with the goats, feeding them any little bit of green they've missed or can't reach from behind the fence. Isaac calls this "Café Mars" for some reason.

  Lila takes a photo of some of her stuff.

Isaac takes a photo of his RV magazine, showing the model we drove to Burning Man 2007.

Our neighbor, Anthony (in red), is filming. He asks for some extras, and Sarah (in white) and I volunteer.

  Here's Lila at the grandparents' house, playing with the DVD player.

  I'm cleaning up from Burning Man 2007 and I come across some of the wristband we placed on Kidsville kids this year.

Magain David Sephardim, during the Passover service. I was way in the back with the kids, who just couldn't sit down long enough.

  I'm heading across the San Francisco Bay Bridge at a good clip until a van bursts into fire, and the resulting chaos and emergency service vehicles and rubber-neckers bring everything to a crawl. A CHP (California Highway Patrol) officer spends his time standing next to the fire truck screaming at each passing vehicle "don't look, just drive, dammit". Wonderful.

  Lila and Isaac bicycling. They're so happy to be using two-wheelers.

It's time for Roadworks: Steamroller Prints at San Francisco Center for the Book. Isaac dons gloves and helps smear the ink around. Lila supervises.

Inside the Center for the Book, Isaac takes over from the woman in purple and gives in-depth descriptions of the workings of this rotary press. That boy's a natural. The public loves the novelty of being instructed by an 8-year-old.
