Since the present is being rather difficult, I’ll embrace the past this #tbt and post this pic of Claudia and me at the SF Zoo circa 1967. Please notice the matching hand knit WOOL skirt/jacket combos knit by our mom. Seriously, two children under 3 and knitting matching wool outfits. Of note, I do have a picture of Claudia on her first day of kindergarten wearing a jacket very similar to the one here. Clearing ripping out sweaters and reknitting them runs in our genes.
P.S. I’m the one on the left looking dopey. Can you see the little Claudia’s inquiring mind here already?
