Winter 2020-2021

Here we are again--December and January, no winter trips for us this year, but some good times at home and with our close "podded" friends, and a little bit (when the reopening cooperated) around the city.


Get-togethers with Evie:


Recess, at the playground when it's rainy or on our block:

Helen's arm tree, Helen and Samantha's illustrated book, Helen's shield:


Fun take-out treats, from Third Cliff Bakery, handmade boba and fantastic custards from Chinatown, and Persian kebab:


Just hanging about--eating batter, reading to dolls, checking out neighborhood art, visiting Little Free libraries, playing with Legos, playing with a neighbor:


Trying out new-to-us playgrounds:


Bike errands, mostly to the library, but also bringing two weeks' worth of groceries to families that had to quarantine because they tested positive:


Children's Museum:
