Crib Notes: The love is thicker

It still gives her chills to think what could have happened if her neighbor hadn’t called when she did, awaking my sister and brother-in-law out of a solid sleep. It was 1 a.m. on Oct. 9. Their home was in Santa Rosa, in the Mark West subdivision, a neighborhood that had existed for more than […]

Crib Notes: The universal language of kids

The Rescue Union School District offered families the opportunity to host school children from Hangzhou, China last week. I have always appreciated that diplomacy-building trips have been organized between countries that have cool relations. In the 1980s my parents hosted a young woman from Japan for a month.

Crib notes: You know you’re in EDH update

It’s been fun hearing from readers since the last Crib Notes was published, adding things to the You know you’re in EDH if…list. If you recall, I couldn’t help starting a list since we moved here more than 14 years ago because so many things are unique to El Dorado Hills alone. I appreciate your […]

Crib notes: You know you’re from EDH if …

I’m 100 miles from where I grew up in the Bay Area, but in the 14 years since we started our family in El Dorado Hills I’ve thought a lot about what makes where a person lives unique. For me it was things like hiking Mt. Diablo, water skiing in the Delta and living near […]
