For learning how to fix your own bike, Ann Arbor's own co-op, Common Cycle, is a fantastic resource. Open Sundays 11-3 at 416 W Huron.
Spent the morning volunteering as a mechanic for the first time.
Observations: if you get there at 11 it's pretty quiet. After 12:30 and you might have to wait.
Cool group of people there!
Every Friday for me is being the parent helper for 3 or 4 virtual learners. This Friday the kids are paying markedly less attention than the last.
Our K teacher is having a ton of technical difficulties - so far the majority of time is still spent resolving tech problems rather than interacting.
We made the decision to pull our 5 year old from A2connect, we are going fully virtual because he really gets nothing out of the synchronous virtual meetings.

I'm way more proud of this joke idea/photoshop than I probably have a right to be.
My fire pit has yet to ship, so I can't really host a tootup this week. Unless folks are available earlier and then we could go stare at the goats around 6ish.
On the plus side for this weekend, I tore out an old drop ceiling in my basement, and found an existing laundry chute that my wife has been begging me to find room for. It's currently behind some drywall in our kids' bathroom.
also, the Creeping Charlie is doing a good job of banning my backyard already.
Virtual Kindergarten has been an unmitigated disaster for my 5 year old son. It's made everything worse.
We are pulling him next week. It's not sustainable.
My daughter has done as well as can be expected, given the restrictions of virtual learning for 8 year olds.
Today got an email sent to my 5 year old.
"Please review this information on the link below. It is very important you learn how to navigate this app for your virtual school year. We anticipate this orientation process will take no more than 3 hours."

At work: Oncology. In my free time: riding and fixing bikes, taking photos. (Not much free time as a father of two)
