  • BLOG — Whatcha got cookin’?

    Baby Alive, circa 1992. A wonderful plaything that was both intermittently functional and terrifying.

    When considering what to give my three-year-old for Christmas this year, I chose a gift I thought she would like, something that acts as a complement to many of the toys she already has and easily stores them, and which, most importantly, will require very little clean-up from me in the future.

  • Anything on Wheels rescheduled due to bike path repairs

    The Antioch School held its recently-revived Anything On Wheels fundraising event Sunday, Sept. 23, where students, both present and past, ride from the school on Corry Street to Xenia and back for a total of about 15 miles on bicycles, unicycles, skateboards — anything on wheels. Experienced riders can choose to go the whole distance, while those new to wheels can ride around the path surrounding the school playground. Pictured above are, from left, graduate Jorie Sieck, Sam Linden (obscured), graduate Zack Brintlinger-Conn, Evelyn Potter, graduate Samantha Bold and Zenya Hoff-Miyazaki. Sieck and Brintlinger-Conn rode the entire 15 miles on unicycles, accompanied by Bold and Hoff-Miyazaki. They were met in the last stretch by their peers who had finished and circled back to bring them home. (Photo by Matt Minde)

    The Antioch School fundraiser Anything on Wheels, originally scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 6, has been re-scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 13, to accommodate repairs being made to the Little Miami Scenic Trail.

  • BLOG — Let’s go to the movies, let’s go see the stars

    Dayton's Dixie Twin Drive-In.

    Imagine, dear readers, if you will: a movie theater at which you supply your own seats, your own sound. At which children and adults alike are free to roam the grounds during the film without bothering anybody. At which you can literally close a door upon your rowdy child (and yourself, too, because we’re not monsters, here) and still enjoy the film?

  • BLOG — Par-tay!

    Hopscotch and conversation at the Stafford and Union streets block party on Saturday, Aug. 17.

    August 1 marked my four year anniversary as a resident of Yellow Springs, and in all that time, I had yet to attend one of the annual block parties until last weekend.

  • BLOG — Mermaid feet

    A small gaggle of kids of all ages will gather at Gaunt Park Pool for the next two weeks for swim lessons. I was on hand with my daughter, Lucy, for the level one beginner class. (Photo by Anthony Fife)

    My daughter’s first days at swim lessons at Gaunt Park Pool make me reflect (ha!) on my own childhood love for swimming.

  • BLOG — Le Fabuleux Destin de Moi

    woohoo wedding

    Several weeks ago, I went to a screening of Amelie at the Little Art’s “Last Reel Film Festival.” Then I got married. I’ll explain how these two things are, vaguely, related.
