MIT + K12

on May 1st, 2012 at 10:50:04 PM

MIT is trying to get more kids interested in science, tech, engineering, and math with a site called MIT + K12 where kids can watch short videos of MIT students doing different experiements. MIT is filled wtih thousands of brilliant students who have access to sophisticated labs and equipment. This project gives students a way to give back by letting them become "experimental partners" to teachers around the country. Teachers can suggest different topics or assignments and the students will create the videos. The research they've done so far is positiive and the kids really like the videos.

New roof

It's a new year and we're getting a new roof - oh joy! Paying for a new roof is about as thrilling as paying for a root canal. But it turned out great. Here's the old and the new. 

NYC Dec 2011

on December 30th, 2011 at 7:00:00 PM

We had a fun couple of days in New York. Danny drove down midweek and the kids and I took the bus down on Friday morning, Dec 30th. I woke them up at 4:45 am to catch the bus to Porter station, the T to South Station, and then a bus to NY. They were fantastic travellers. Highlights of the trip were ice skating in Rockerfeller Center, watching them test the New Years ball in Times Square, Highline park, climbing on the giant rocks in the south side of Central Park, books and cupcakes at Books of Wonder and wandering around the streets. We stayed at our friends apt in the Upper West side (thanks Ben!) and I discovered the Westside Market on Broadway during a morning run - awesome place.

We waited over an hour to skate

Funny kid

on November 16th, 2011 at 10:56:33 PM

The kids were getting ready for bed the other night and messing around to avoid the inevitable. Paige was jumping around and bumped her head.  Elizabeth said, "Served you right for fooling around!". And Paige replied with "No, it served me wrong!" and stompped off.

We had a great day at Honey Pot Hill orchard with the Stelzers. Paige ate about 5 apples and Elizabeth tried to climb every tree in the orchard. Ashley took some great shots, here are my favorites.

Quick trip to NY

on August 23rd, 2011 at 11:45:57 AM

We squeezed in a quick stay in NY while the kids were in VT at Camp Grandma. The first stop was the Dia: Beacon on the Hudson. This musuem is amazing - so worth the trip if you haven't been. We drove through a wild summer thunderstorm and reached the city in time for a late dinner at  Celeste on Amsterdam/85th. Day two started with pastries from the Hungarian Pastry shop (on Amsterdam near Columbia) and then we spent the rest of the day walking over 60 blocks starting with the High Line, into Chelsea, West Village, SOHO and then met friends for dinner at Rohm Thai. We checked out the Museum of Art and Design the next morning and had to evacuate after the Virginia earthquake shook the building.
