Another Happy Birthday


Sam, as one of the elders in his playgroup, led the way a few weeks ago with his first birthday party – it’s been a sucession of great events organized by the hippest parents around. Here are pics from his buddy Ayden’s party held on Sunday – his parents threw a great event – yummy food for the parents, cheerio necklaces for the tykes and great kid-appropriate cupcakes for the under-1-year-old attendees.

Demolition Day(s)


Parents of kids entering the Grant Park Cooperative Preschool’s new Cabbagetown facility this Fall gathered to gut much of the interior of the building in preparation for renovations through the next few months. Sam will be joining the ‘Cats’ group in just a few months for two days a week. Most enjoyable: knocking down the 2x4s with a mallet. Least fun: pulling up the linoleum flooring. But all in all, a good time for a good cause. I know I’ll be holding this labor over my son’s head in the future. Who knew tearing stuff down could be so much fun?

Sunday 6/4 Update: I’ve added images from day two of ‘demolition’, when we actually began construction activities, putting up drywall, spackling over the screws, and framing out the new doorway and walls for part of the improvements.

Out in the Yard

Peekaboo Tree

We’ve had a busy Saturday. First we were off to the Grant Park Cooperative Preschool’s organizational meeting for their new Cabbagetown campus where Sam will be headed this Fall. I’ll be on the communications/tech committee where I can cause the most trouble apply my skills. Later, while Amy was at rehearsals for the Atlanta Opera‘s upcoming Tosca performances, Sam and I took a nice walk and were hanging on the porch. Amy came home, and Sam helped out with some pruning of the ivy, as you can see above. Click here for the full gallery.
