This week in Saint Paul: Monday, June 23–Sunday, June 29, 2014

We have been busy this summer. We have only just begun. You might think we would be all tuckered out, but we have a great bunch of young people pulling the Storymobile, fueled by a decade’s worth of your stories, so our sprint to September’s Book Release Party (keep your eyes open for details in coming days) might leave us winded but nicely traveled. Here are a few ideas on where you can join our trek.

Tales in the dark

With the ongoing weather- and age-related home issues we've had in recent years, I have been (sort of) joking to T that I am ready to just pack up the cats and a few sentimental items, quietly drive away, and let nature have her way with our house.

After last weekend, you might be thinking there couldn’t possibly be any art or culture left in the Capital City. Okay, I guess you know better than that. For a lot of young people, this is the first full week off from school and the weather has been cooperating—except for a couple of rained-out baseball games and a picnic—and everyone needs to be out of the house and busy.

A letter to all the dads

To all the Dads:

Thank you! I always knew that being a dad was quite an undertaking, but it wasn’t until Dave and I had Nava that I realized what a demanding job fatherhood truly is (and we are only 10 months in!)
