My husband and I experienced an amazing luxury this past weekend. We left our three children with my unsuspecting parents, and took off for 36 hours in Berkeley -- 36 hours "child free." I like to anticipate the worst and hope for the best. We left the van at home, so I wouldn't have to worry about tipping over in the gusty winds. We also left the lifeboat at home (which I keep in my van in case of flooding across the Sepulveda Basin area, so as to avoid having to be rescued by a helicopter string hovering over the car roof where I've had to climb to catch the rope trailing for me)

Katherine Gould recently enjoyed a thrilling ride on Magic Mountain's fast-zooming, forward-and-backward-rotating, face-down-plunging X2 roller coaster. Then she underwent a frustrating experience trying to recover from Magic Mountain's lost-and-found department the smartphone that had gone flying from her pocket at some point during all that zooming, rotating and plunging.

Imagine going on tour and skating all the great skate parks in Los Angeles. You sport your pads and helmet, take your board and hang out with your friends. The next day, it’s off to another skate park. Then another. One day you go to Raging Waters — just to vary things a little bit. The next day, you’re ripping concrete with your pals doing ollies, dropping into bowls and defying gravity in ways that would make Isaac Newton jealous. For seven hours, and $200 a week, kids in the city of Glendale’s Traveling Skate Camp got to do all this in three weeks starting Aug. 3, where skaters like Adam Porte keep an eye on the kids but also teach them the tricks of the trade And the skate camp all started as a business plan for a class Porte was taking at Cal State Northridge.

The financial security of Mountain Avenue Elementary School may have been riding on his 10-year-old legs, but Andrew Walsh was certain he was running for something else. “I wanted to get a deejay party,” the fourth-grader said, referring to one of the incentives at his school’s jog-a-thon fundraiser for students who raised more than $100 Friday. “Because last year everyone said it was really fun.” With music from “High School Musical 3” blaring in the background and parents cheering children on, students eagerly huffed and puffed around an improvised track to raise money for the school’s educational foundation, which funds supplemental supplies and programs at Mountain Avenue Elementary.

These are among the busiest of weeks as schools host year-end events, transition into summer schedules or dovetail year-round classes while trying to balance in some fun. Take Cerritos Elementary for example. The school's focus on reading has paid off ? students met their 2005-06 reading goal of more than 3,456,789 minutes. To even the most unskilled mathematician, that's a lot of minutes. As a reward, an assembly featuring professional bicyclists sizzled the playground on Monday while Wednesday's "Grace Race" at 9:15 a.m. has Principal Janice Hanada challenging one teacher from each grade level to a tricycle race.
