Learning to Surf

Ahh, summertime! Last year I wrote about how we registered our son for Capitola Junior Guards. ┬áThat was the last year, it seems, when folks had to get up at o’dark:30 to wait in line to make sure they got the session they wanted (now it’s all done online, boo hoo!). He is now in […]
