"Actually, Benny, my favorite quote from that article is the next sentence:
"We want it to feel like a spring picnic experience."
I presume he will install wind machines and a big pile of sand in front of them to blow around--because…"
"With all of the dysfunction within APS and the teachers, maybe parents should consider unschooling.
I have a deep dislike for mountain bikers, but do concede that they need a place to ride. Instead of bandit trails, maybe the Fat Tire guy should…"

What I'm Reading:
Magazines- My wife's copy of Bust, every month. Consumer Reports. Fine Gardening. My college alumni magazine. Brain, Child. Oh yeah, a few books too, once in a while. You know, Sherman Alexie, Billy Joel Biographies, Books about the Red Sox, stuff like that.
Masshole, thanks for the Denver restaurant recommendation! My post was pulled b/c I was outside of the scope of DCF--i.e. Denver dish. Lo siento. At any rate, I saw your recs. Muchas gracias :) I will look into Sushi Den today. I'm thinking lunch. I leave out tonight and will try to get all three meals at amazing restaurants before I head home (to my real favorites).
Yes. The info was very helpful... and I totally understand how you feel about keeping it a secret. I was born, raised... and still live in the South Valley... I always found out about the event after the fact... Thank you very much for the info.
We love Bandelier as well and are very grateful to attend there. Reese, my son, is in third grade, with Ms. Erwin. Her teaching style is so different. Instead of reading this hour and math that hour. She incorporates it into everything the students do in a more creative way. Their field trips are once a month to the Bosque, working on a program with UNM's biology department. She's the one who started the outdoor gardens. Definately a teacher who fits the Nob Hill 'hippieness'. Tenley, my daughter, had Ms. Lea last year, and is in Ms. Quinn's this year. Course most of her friends are in Ms. Ortiz's class. They both also attend Children's Choice before and after school, and during the summer. Great staff in there as well. Have a great year and we'll see you at the Halloween carnival!
thanks for the kind words on the religion discussion, i was trying to keep it factual yet not actuarial - unfortunately someone shut it down??? not sure why - i find that to be more offensive than anything said on that thread.
