Front Page

So, Max visits for a week and manages to end up on the front page of the newspaper--above the fold, no less!

During his visit I arranged for Max to spend time at Pine Hill Child Care Center, the wonderful facility housed in our school. The newspaper did a story on the impact to families of a reduction in state aid for childcare. As part of the story, they interviewed the director of Pine Hill and also took a picture of an intern from Antioch leading a class with the students, including Max.

Max is in the blue shirt on the right side of the picture. He has a big grin on his face and looks like he is having a very good time. Publicity hound!

The Empire State

Today while Lauren and Daphne were having a baby birth class reunion, Max and I went on an adventure. We went to the top of the tallest building in New York City. The Empire State Building. Max was fearless. When we got to the observatory on the 86th floor he ran right to the edge, climbed up on the foot rest of one of the pay binoculars and stuck his head through the railing and looked straight down! "Whoa!" he shouted "Look! I can see people and taxis!"
