I think I'll start keeping brief records about interesting little facts about my family.
Here's are some interesting fact about my mom.
My mom used to teach home economics at Los Gatos High right after she graduated from college. When I started dating Christian, I learned that his mother (10 years younger than my mom) had actually been in my mom's home economics class at Los Gatos High. Very strange coincidence. I'll try to scan some photos from his mom's yearbook.
So it turns out that my mom played a primary role in convincing the administration at Los Altos High to allow the female teachers to wear pants. Skirts were required of all female teachers. It turns out pant-suits were very stylish at the time (1969-1970), and my mom was definitely into wearing the latest styles. So she lobbied with the administration and got them to allow the women to wear pants. And she was the first female faculty/staff there to wear pants to class.
Pretty cool, huh?
