Derby Practice Run

Today was our last day to practice for the Rye Derby in Rye, so we tried to run as close a course as we could to the actual Derby course. We had to take an alternate route towards the end of Playland Parkway since it is not open to pedestrians, but we managed to minimize the detour and maintain the same distance.

We made the mistake of running right after lunch on a full stomach and Eason had a hard time. Towards the end there were lots tears and complaining, but he persevered. In the end, despite the crying, we cut a minute off our best time and ran 3.3 miles in 34 minutes. The best part of all is that, after all his complaining and wanting to stop, it took all of 30 minutes afterwards to be glad he didn't and proud of what he accomplished.

Who Lives On Your Lawn?

Where I grew up, there were no Jesus lawn signs. There were no lawns, but Jesus lived right down the block. And another Jesus lived right around the corner. Moving to the suburbs has been quite an adjustment.

My Wu-Wei Story

All my life people have been telling me "you think too much" to which I've usually replied "too much for what?"

This accusation has always seemed indefensible...until now.

This year we hosted Thanksgivukkah, as 2013 is the first time ever when Hanukkah converges with Thanksgiving. and not again for several thousands of years.

Bacia made latkes with cranberry sauce. The kids told Thanksgivukkah jokes and sang songs. We all played Hanukkah bingo. The boys performed a special Thanksgivukkah concert for us. And we ate...a lot! (Including turkey, challah stuffing, sweet potato kugel, pastrami string beans, and lots of deserts.)

Boo At The Zoo

We went to the Bronx Zoo for their traditional Boo at the Zoo celebration. It was a fun day. We were only there for a few hours, but we managed watched the Boo at the Zoo story telling, listened to the band, watched the magic show, and walk around in costume.
