We took babcia out for dinner for her birthday. She always enjoys spending time with her family, especially with all her grandchildren. She had a great time, and so did we.

We went to the Palisades Climb Adventure at the Palisades Center.
I was too afraid to go climbing myself, but my kids weren't. They were fearless...almost. Once the got the hang of things, they were zipping all around. I got a lot of video. It's probably a good thing I ran out of storage.

A lot has been written on the controversial subjects of allowance for children, instilling a healthy understanding of money and saving, balancing the merits of paying for chores and paying for entrepreneurship, and contributing to charities and the household. For us, the way we manage money with our kids is framed by how we managed money before we had kids.

I received an email from Senator George Latimer with the content of this One Size Does Not Fit All Schools article. I don't necessarily disagree, but I take issue with the way he seems to conflate issues, and sidestep any real proposals.

I brought the kids into the office with me. This was the first time I had them both with me at the same time. When we got to the office another dad, who also brought his son and daughter asked me if my kids could go watch TV in the conference room with his kids. He didn't believe me at first when I told them they had a bunch of work to do. It was a little awkward. Despite all the work, we all had a good time together.
