Hi! It’s been a while. Jackie and Amelia dressed up for Halloween today. Jackie was Minerva, and Amelia was “Hipster Ariel”. I was Han Solo but nobody took my picture. 🙁

Last night Meilei and I channeled our Italian vacation and whipped up some bruschetta. OMG it was good. Note the untoasted, crust-trimmed versions for Jackie, who recently got braces.

Amelia’s Red Hawks U11 team is on fire this year and Jackie’s team is too!

Time to paint.

The U11 Red Hawks went out with a bang, winning both games at the season ending jamboree in Danville.

The Red Hawks U9 girls team played two games in Los Altos on Sunday. As always, they were super exciting to watch. Pictures are here.

Thursday afternoon we explored one of the old railroad tunnels in the Santa Cruz mountains. A rail line ran from Alameda to Santa Cruz from the late 1800’s until 1940. The tunnels were dynamited in 1942, but the entrances remain, and they’re fun to explore.
