There was a rockslide on the way up to Willamette pass on OR58.
Katja has taken a liking to skiing. the local rental shop will rent her a set of skis and boots for $129 for the season. As much as I want to help her have access to skis I want to help her understand money and entrepreneurship.
I put it out there that she will need to pay for the skis for next year (the ski pass is free till age 12). There was silence for a few minutes after which she said that she could make hats. She likes to crochet. I suggested that hand made hats might be in the order of $25-$30 and that six of them might generate enough income for the skis.
Since concocting this plan on Friday she has lined up training for hat making (a friend), and discovered where she can sell them (the annual ski swap event). This is going to be fun and interesting to support. Some time in the future we’ll take a look at the business model canvas.
All a board.
Wonderful week. ICLDC is the week that it snows and Eugene. This time with ICLDC as an all remote conference I’m here to enjoy it with my kids!
It snowed all weekend in the mountains. The Willamette pass opened Wednesday. It was a clear day no chains needed. So I took Katja to get a private ski lesson and we spent the day skiing the slopes.
She loves to ski.
Today Katja wanted to vacuum her room for the first time. We had a small problem. Becky had disassembled the filter while washing it. Now we needed to reassemble it without her. To the encyclopedia of YouTube we go.
Katja is keen to remind me at Home Depot has a craft for kids on the first weekend of the month.
Katja and I had afternoon hot chocolate today. we talked about her work at school. She is learning about typography and letter height. Worm line, grass line, airplane line and cloud line. I showed her some of my work and some of the font things I’ve done and the font book we have here in the house.
