Willa and I are having “outer space” parties this week, watching awesome lectures about the 10 best images taken by Hubble under the “bear cave” blanket.
Operation Get-the-Ball-Over-the-Net is on! Ann Arbor Rec-and-Ed has a tennis teacher named Gary who is awesome.
Michigan-themed pins are now for sale at The Eyrie in Ypsilanti! This adorable shop is down by Side Tracks and Ollie’s vegan-booyah and boozy milkshake Cafe. Got them there in time for Beerfest. You should go there!
We’re moving to co-housing!

“Dad, there are gases swirling around uranus.”
