and campuses are closed all this week for spring recess. That means many parents and children are out of town, or heading out, for family vacations.
On Monday, we heard from Los Gatos dad, Eric Harrison, and his son, Mathew Harrison, 6, a first-grader in Erin Shumm's class at Louise Van Meter Elementary School. We also interviewed parents, Christine and Terence Throm, whose son, Alex, attends Union Middle School and daughter, Elizabeth, attends .
On Tuesday, we spoke to Los Gatos resident, Shannon Thomas, who plans to take her niece, Talia, 10, to the library and local parks, and dad, Paul Todd, and his daughters, Millie, 8, and Cecily, 5, who were getting ready to go ski at Lake Tahoe.
Wednesday, we feature mom, Tina Phan, and her son, Jeffrey Suzuki, 12, a student at Raymond J. Fisher Middle School, and Campbell residents, Laura and 5-year-old Max Reese. Jeffrey said he will study and then have fun locally. His mother said the family will stay in town for the break, because an older son has volleyball practice.
And Max? After a heavy episode of laughter, he finally told us what he was doing with a two-word answer—"doing babies." Mom clarified that the family would be staying home, "talking about babies" over the break.
On Thursday we chatted with Priscilla Vodden and goddaughter Sophia Gordon, 11, a student at Fisher. We also talk to Marianne Zuhorski. Gordon is having a party during the break and visiting her grandfather's farm. Zuhorski, husband Paul, and children Fracesca, 4, and Luca, 2, are traveling to their home in Lake Tahoe and taking art classes.
Today we meet Ekta Gunsagar and daughters Krisaana, 5, and Aryka, 3. They're going on a Mediterranean cruise. We also hear from Petra Gross and son Mathew, 5, and Lauren, 7. Gross has to work so they're staying in town and Robin Quesada, and son Henry Quesada, 12, plan to go to , Lake Tahoe and swimming with dad.
