3 Things for Yesterday- The Firetruck, Art Packs, and Shoreline Walks with Holly

1. The up-swell of Greene pride because my Grampa is giving away our beloved firetruck- I have been trying really hard not to be too sad or selfish about this. Everyone has the right to do what they want with their stuff, and that includes my grandparents. But it is sad. I feel like Greenes have an incredibly rich (and odd) culture all our own, and it really freaks me out when it feels like that might dissipate. I also think when you grow up with divorced parents, and life is really unsteady, the stability of your extended family is really precious to you. It's a bigger ship, so it changes directions less quickly and easily. For this and many other reasons, it makes me so sad when our Greene family culture seems to be going away, I really don't do well with it. On the other hand, I am so encouraged when something happens like this, you can count on Greenes to get nostalgic and pull together. It has been fun to see everyone react in their own way, and I really loved all the pictures my Aunt Joanna put up of the firetruck through the years. It makes me proud to be in this group! Yay Greenes!

2. Doing work for my museum job- It is a big week for my stuff at the Cantor, because I am training volunteers on VTS Sunday morning and teaching the studio classes Sunday afternoon. Yesterday, I did a lot of the prep and it was mostly kind of fun. Right now, I am trying to figure out how to write packs to help families navigate the museum, so if you have any thoughts about how YOU visited museums with children, I would really appreciate it.
3. Walk with Holly- I go for walks every other week or so with my friend Holly from church, and they are a really nice time to check in and figure out what we can do to pray for each other. I don't think we have a ton of common ground, but we are both chatty, so it works.
