At-home dad

July 27, 2008

Kay will be flying to Ohio later this week to bury her father’s ashes, leaving me with the kids. I was planning to work from home, until Kay reminded me that I could use my remaining bereavement leave. So I’ll be working Monday and Tuesday, then Kay leaves early Wednesday morning, returning Sunday morning.

This is a pretty unique opportunity: Dad time, with no work, for days. What am I going to do?? This is where I need your help: What would kids between the ages of 10 and 15 enjoy doing with their dad, in and around the South Bay? Your suggestions, please.

(The suggestions don’t have to be grand, because I know that the activity itself is less important than the fact that we get to do it together.)

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  1. hang out in and around Monterey/Santa Cruz. Summer at the beach, man. It’s what it’s about!

  2. dude. Golden gate park. The tech museum. April will be here on Saturday and we are gonna go to the Monterey bay aquarium if you wanna come. Show them Berkeley. Go to the observatory in Oakland hills. Take a walk in quicksilver. Take them to the movies. Swim in your pool. The possibilities around here are endless!
