It’s Testing Time in NYC!

I found this card in my 5th Grade daughter’s backpack yesterday.  It’s a good luck card from her kindergarten book buddy wishing her well on the New York State standardized tests – all 6 days of them.  It’s so sweet, but also so sad to me that even the kindergarteners know that testing is happening and feel the stress in the school.

Dream Cruising in Michigan: Classic Cars Hit the Road


This past weekend was the Dream Cruise, an annual drive along Woodward Avenue starting just outside Detroit and heading north.  We drove the route from around 18 mile road (Long Lake Rd) in Bloomfield Hills down to 9 Mile Road, ending in Ferndale with dinner at Local Kitchen and Bar, a new restaurant.
