  1. Also tonight is the Arbor Heights book fair at Barnes & Noble booksellers in Westwood Village. 6:30p to 8:30p activities in the children’s section, and a portion of sales will go back to AH.

  2. Thanks – nobody told us or else we’d have it in the lineup, as with other schools (I believe Denny is later in the week) … quick e-mail to editor@westseattleblog.com, one week (or more!) in advance, reaches tens of thousands :) Anyway, good luck! – TR

  3. fantastic photo of the kinglet! it’s a challenge to find them not moving nervously, or showing their crown. Thanks for posting this, it made my day.

  4. TR – if I could get Arbor Heights to get one stinkin’ event notification out BEFORE it actually happened, we’d BOTH be happy campers. And by before, I mean at least 24 hours before. Better yet, several days or a week. HAHAHA. Wishful thinking. Yes, AH I’m talking to you!
    .
    We got flyers in our kids backpacks YESTERDAY with info re: the Book Fair. That’s 3.5 hours of notice before the event was going to happen. Assuming of course that most kids’ parents picked their kids up right at 3pm and immediately looked in their backpacks upon picking them up.
    .
    For parents like me, who don’t get their kids until after our work day is over, (i.e. post 5pm!) from the after-school program, it was less than an hours notice.
    .
    Good thing I knew about it before hand (for once!)… but I suspect a LOT of parents didn’t.
    .
    But apparently a boatload of families at AH don’t have to work outside the home for a living, or have at least one parent home all day? Or the staff assumes they don’t? They sure don’t help us Single Working Parents out with their extreme tardiness on announcements. Grrrrrr…. infuriating.
