Crib Notes: ‘American Idol’ was the baby years

Certain songs bring back memories of distinct periods in our lives and so do television shows. When I think of “Days of Our Lives” I think of elementary and junior high school. Shirley Temple was weekend mornings with my sisters. “Melrose Place” makes me think of college. I don’t watch regular TV much as an […]

Crib notes: Town Center … Plaza?

We’ve visited my mom, two sisters and their families in Sonoma for years, but suddenly I’m seeing somewhere I’ve spent countless times, the heart of that town, in a new light because it’s gotten me thinking about El Dorado Hills. The Sonoma Plaza is at the center of Sonoma — a green, shaded park, a […]

Crib notes: Don’t stop the music

It’s awesome to see public school music programs exist despite budget cuts and a laser focus on core curriculum in favor of electives.

No excuses and don’t expect other people or circumstances to save us. We need […]

Crib Notes: The best place for veterans

Watching them beam with pride gives me goosebumps every year. For 12 consecutive years, American veterans from every war since World War II have stood in front of Lake Forest Elementary students and their families, scanning the room as the applause grows louder. One by one, they stand in front and state their names, branch of […]

Crib Notes: The crack heard ’round EDH

“Mrs. Samrick, Jack’s hurt!” my 11-year-old’s friend said to me with concern in his eyes. I hustled to the small gathering to see Jack still on the ground in chart-topping pain. He was playing football with friends at a school event and broke his collarbone. From the nurses who happened to be there and the […]
