The Redwood Acres Fair is different this year. They have made substantial changes to the "usual and customary" format. One of the biggest changes was the addition of a "Made In Humboldt" exhibit hall, containing the best of what we make and do here in Humboldt. There was local food, local beer, local wine, and lots of local folks.
I took my 5 yr old, as well as my grown daughter, her fiancee, and a good friend. We spent the better part of the day there, and we had a great time. The link takes you to a gallery page of photos of the day. I recommend clicking the "slideshow" button. Well done, Redwood Acres, well done!
Jay's first real costume party. Spiderman! They were REALLY into it. His friend, Bryson, dressed as Superman, was turning 4, and they had well over a dozen other cute kids in costumes.
Recently, my child, Jay (age 3) and I went to a demo class for “North Coast Music Together” (NCMT), a “community of families sharing songs, instrument play, rhythm chants, and movement in a relaxed, playful and non-performance-based setting”. It is for infants through toddlers, along with active parent participation.
This is the second attempt at a formal “music appreciation” class for my musically interested kid. Our first attempt was at the HSU Music Academy.
I also know one of the instructors, I assisted Jose on some of the technical design and installation aspects of the Digital Pathways video project for youth in Humboldt County. He exudes the same boundless energy teaching 3yr olds that he does creating innovative Workforce Investment Act projects.
We start classes in the upcoming fall session.
