October 2023

You know it is October when you see the neighbors have put up their Halloween decorations.

maiki and I took a fun stroll around the Emeryville marina while Emma was at middle school hang out.

Been working on knitting this scarf.

Emma is taking Lego Engineering and a history of T-shirts classes at Hickman this fall.

We volunteered at the Autumn Lights Festival!

Emma celebrated her 12th birthday.

Emma visited the Dia de los Muertos event at the Oakland museum.

And visited the video game museum The MADE in Oakland.

I love shopping at the Berkeley markets (Monterey Market and Berkeley Bowl) in October. I have been buying so many persimmons!

And of course Halloween included a homeschool carnival and trick or treating on 4th Street in Berkeley.

Autumn Lights Festival, 2022

This year Emma and I volunteered for the Autumn Lights Festival with the bonsai garden. We help set up and also worked the event for two of the nights. Emma was able to explore the festival solo which was very exciting for them.
