Touchstone Climbing Welcomes It's Newest "Mini-Member"
Today I have some great, non-climbing news to report to all of you. Looks like the Touchstone Climbing
Staff just grew by 1! That's right, we welcomed into our ranks the newest mini-member exactly one week ago today!
One of our spinning instructors at Berkeley Ironworks, Becky Ackerman and her husband Fred welcomed in a healthy, happy baby boy, David Richard Kohne Ackerman on December 30. He weighed in at 6lbs 15oz and was 20 inches long.
Here is a brief recap courtesy of Fred:
Becky's water broke at 11:15 pm last night and at 4:21 am today David joined our family. Becky did an incredible job and amazed everybody in the triage, delivery and recovery rooms with her strength. She was handling the early contractions so well they all thought she wasn't very far along and would take way longer than the 5 hrs it did. Since both Becky and David are so healthy they let us leave at 6:30 pm. All three of us are glad to be home now and about to catch up on some sleep. For those Bay Area locals who've so generously expressed interest in helping with meals in the coming days and weeks, please contact our good friend Molly Nakahara who's organizing a meal calendar. Please email her at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In short, congratulations from all of us here at Touchstone Climbing
! We're so glad everyone is safe, healthy, happy and doing great! Now get him a harness and lets get him climbing!
