Kate went to her second Club 45 activity this past Sunday, where they braved the weather to do some tree planting. From the recap email: In honor of Tu b’Shvat, the Jewish holiday where we love and appreciate the natural world around us, Club 45 teamed up with the Friends of the Burke-Gilman Trail to do what Jews do best…PLANTING TREES! We were originally scheduled to plant about 40 trees but our Club 45’ers were so great we ended up doubling that. The organizers had to go and get more trees to keep up with the planting power of Club 45!
Kate has been reading a lot of books out loud lately– to us, to her stuffies, to je ne sais pas qui. Last night she decided to read me Martha in the Middle, by Jan Fiernley. She announced before starting that she was going to do all the voices– I wish I had recorded that too!
As we have sometimes done in the past, Kate and I decided to fly down to Oakland for the weekend to meet Grandpa and Aunt Carol for the bookfair. Uncle David and Uncle Steve and Aunt Elaine were also going to be there, and Stephanie drove in for the day as well. It was fun seeing everyone and giving Kate a taste of how my childhood weekends were spent.
