california academy of sciences opened this weekend in san francisco! mod*tot + i got a peek at the building from the de young museum tower. here are some photos they sent us. does that roof look like teletubbies?
i'm going to add some more photos this evening. right now, we're off to the oncologist for an ultrasound of some lumps. i'm also going to meditate + do a mind/body/spirit dance class. mod*tot's online kindergarten isn't challenging enough for her yet. we go through the lessons, hoping to get to the challenging part. she keeps saying, "boring... preschool..."

click to enlarge photos... i'll add lots more tonight :)
update: ultrasound showed lumps are normal tissue :) yipeeeeeeeeeeeee!

That is INCREDIBLE! Wow! Blows away any science center I've ever seen! We went to San Fran 2 years ago...fabulous trip! (part of what I call our 'Walleyworld Vacation' - full of 'fun')

Good luck with your lumps. I recently had a scare myself and after a few ultrasounds, and two mammograms, I was told it was nothing. (although by the time they told me that I was scared out of my wits.)

I don't know ya, but I'll be thinking about you. I'll check back and hopefully you'll post some good news!

Am wishing you well, Mod Mom. Report back - we're all eagerly awaiting the "all clear" bat signal!

We will be sending positive vibes your way. The Academy of Sciences looks amazing. I will tell my aunt who lives in San Fran to check it out. Thanks for the photos. Vanessa

So very happy to hear about the positive outcome on your ultrasound. I'll share the wonderful news. Love, L.

Great to hear that mod*mom. I was worried about you!

So, so glad the ultrasound gave you good news! YAY!
Hope things get more interesting for mod*tot...How flexible is the online school? Can you throw in your own stuff, or do you have to stick close to what they're doing? I checked into it before we started homeschooling my oldest kid, and it looked pretty interesting.
That is a neat building...you all are so lucky to have so many cool things where you are!

sarah: the homeschooling for kindergarten is flexible. you are supposed to do their curriculum, but it's only a few hours a day, so you add whatever you want. mod*tot is zipping through = has to skip a lot of it, because it's teaching stuff that she already knows in math + phonics. she'll start the 1st grade material in a few months.

“In light of the uncertain residential housing market and slowing commercial construction and design projects, redesign and rehabilitation rather than new construction in both the commercial and residential sectors is likely to receive renewed focus. In blending economy with performance, interior designers will need to focus on creative solutions and cost-effective ways to meet clients’ goals in these challenging economic times,” said ASID Executive Director Michael Alin.

This place is amazing ... definitely will be part of our next California vacation.

it was such a zoo that day, though. the traffic almost killed me! that is, it killed my patience! i'm gonna wait till the the novelty wears off and then take my family. it does look pretty cool.

im loving the info on the ca. academy of sciences, but i cant get past your statement of going to go see the oncologist... not to go into detail, but i had an ultrasound for some lumps that turned out to be nothing. it was the waiting and the worrying that just tore me up. i really hope everything goes well for you.

hi abigail,
it went really well at the oncologist. next appt is december :)
thank you for your kindness

We went to the Aquarium yesterday! Wow, it has changed so much! It's so different. The pictures you have are of the rainforest and the planetarium. I suggest the second you get it, you go and get tickets to the show because the lines are pretty long. My three year old really had a great time (sadly, her favorite part was a modified wii remote for catching bugs, I wish it wasn't something we could do at home but she showed interest in other things). I love the jellyfish! And I'm glad to hear you don't have to go back until December!
