In Memory of Toby L.

My "great-aunt" (really my grandmother's cousin) Toby Lebenson passed away this morning, in New York City. She was in her 90s, and a really active lady right up until a few months ago. In May she was given a lifetime achievement award from the community center she started 65 years ago.

The funeral is Wednesday in the city - David and Sofia and I will go down. I'll miss her alot. She was an amazing woman.

In other news, Miss Sofia is rapidly adding to her vocabulary (both verbal and sign), and seems to have given up most naps. She's starting to get fond of staying up to watch TV with Mama and Dada, too.

We went to Sakonnett, RI this Saturday, to visit our friends at their summer home. I've been going there almost every year since college. They have a boy Sam's age and a girl just a year younger than Micah, and the house is right on the water, so the kids all had a blast together. Sofia loved the beach!

Sunday we went to the pool club, and then had dinner at T&L's new house. David was in a miserable mood all day, yelling at me and the boys, but we worked around it.
