This blog started as letters to my daughter to chronicle our family's hands-on journey to reduce our ecological impact. Through conversations, compost, fabric, and small baby steps, these letters reflect our evolution into something more healthy, local, aware, and community-centered.
We get to take the city train from our neck of the woods into downtown one week each year for summer camps. This year we discovered a whole array of activities at the Lloyd Center train station. We played fusball, piano, a huge connect four, listened to music, played board games, frisbee golf, and arranged foam structures around the splash pad. What a treat to make new friends, play with lots of kids, and stay cool and entertained on our way home on the train. This city is full of little surprises like this. What a gift.
