Ground Zero - 8.75 years later
Wow. It really has been a long, long time.
I took my kids into Manhattan ("the City") today for the first time since we moved here. We hit that breath-taking Battery Park, lingered on the playground there for a bit, met *mom* after work for dinner (pricey $12.50 burritos from Blockheads!), and then took the subway and train home as a family.
Despite a spot of rain, it was a beautiful 72 degree day with a refreshing breeze off the Hudson. And the kids did well with all the walking until about the very end. After all, their strides are HALF as long as ours!
These are the types of things a family can do when they are untethered by *school*. Tomorrow should be just as nice; and around lunchtime we're going to a state park to meet up with our new, local homeschool co-op.

8.75 years later?
you aren't teaching your kids this kind of math, are you?
Thanks JT - even though it's still going to look like that in June 2011!
My son wasn't up to proofread that post...
Correction has been made.
I guess it's not "shovel-ready" enough...
And when it comes to memorials, we have much more important priorities, like building a library for Teddy K for instance...
