    Lucas’s 15th Birthday


    Happy 15th Birthday, Lucas. Sorry you had to spend your birthday leading parent-teacher conferences and being under the weather. Looking forward to celebrating more with you and your friends. We love you! What are the chances he’ll need AirPods for his birthday next year?

  • First Day of School – 2023

    First Day of School – 2023


    First day of school for Olivia (11th) and Lucas (9th). It’s hard to believe we have two high-schoolers! It’s also bittersweet that Liv will be driving them both to school. We had a parent social at school so we walked Lucas all the way in and Grace gave him a big kiss goodbye inside the…

  • Lucas’s 8th Grade Graduation

    Lucas’s 8th Grade Graduation


    Yesterday, Lucas and his classmates completed 8th grade and graduated from middle school. We had a full day of celebrations for the kids and adults to mark this amazing milestone. Each student delivers a 100-word speech along with honoring and introducing a classmate, chosen at random. It’s as touching to hear what they have to…

    Lucas’s 14th Birthday


    Lucas turned 14 on Tuesday. We’re already missing the little boy in him, but teen Lucas isn’t too bad (most of the time).

    Lucas had a small birthday party with some friends from school. He wanted to do VR at Sandbox, which only allows 6 participants.

  • Lucas’s 12th Birthday

    Lucas’s 12th Birthday


    Lucas turned 12 today. All-in-all, he’s taken COVID-19 in stride and his birthday is no different. We celebrated with our pod-mates, the Lees, at All Spice in San Mateo. I had no idea they served brunch, but it was one of the tastiest meals we’ve had in the area, pandemic or otherwise. He only had…

  • Skiing Double Black Diamonds with Lucas


    View this post on Instagram The bad news is that Olivia got a cold for her birthday (in addition to many generous gifts). She is resting. The good news is that Lucas started 2020 with some double black diamond runs and a growth mindset. We had a great day together. A post shared by Jason…

  • Shannon Messenger Book Event


    View this post on Instagram Lucas and I went to go see his favorite author, Shannon Messenger, speak yesterday. He told her he’s read all her books five times, which made her so happy. What a thrill for him. Olivia wanted to go, too, but kept her prior commitment. @sw_messenger #keeperofthelostcities A post shared by…

    Lucas’s 11th Birthday


    Lucas turned 11 on November 1st. We had a family dinner at Benihana and he invited a couple of new school friends from the neighborhood. They are super sweet and polite kids. We opened our family presents and cards at home afterwards. Grace and I usually don’t buy the kids presents because they get so…
