So, for the first time we were able to take advantage of this national (!) event! NBC organized a half day of activities, ages 8 and up. So Rio couldn’t go, although it is now Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, always April 28 I believe. Or close to it.
It was packed. Meant to be a Rio Games theme but barely…
Her “pretty scary” face paint. Half and half!
I’d had a day in the city for work, seeing sister and family and in-laws afterward. It’s spring break for NYC schools so they’ve been staycationing… for what Rohan described as the first time in a long time. Here they are declaiming poetry from the Norton Anthology.
Tashi’s reporting of her day (turns out seven or eight kids were out for this event at their respective parent’s office—more than a third of the class!):
This week, the first week of May, is Teacher Appreciation Week. So, as one of the class parents for Rio’s class we did this door, with a padawan-Force theme. (Also, it’s May the Fourth this week!)
That’s Jaya, fellow class parent Kelly’s daughter. We also did the library door again.
Weekend report: dinner chez Amber and Ben’s, rained out Sunday, unsuccessful attempt to see “The Jungle Book,” instead seeing “Deathly Hallows 1” back at home! (Tennis Friday was also rained out. It’s been a mostly chilly spring!) Meanwhile still consumed by the election, having met candidates now more than once. It’s May 10. The grassroots movement is kind of amazing.
