Weird and Wonderful Wednesday

Conference Day No school for the kiddos today. Parent-Teacher conferences are happening on campus. A mid-year check in to see how everyone’s doing. Interestingly, now that Atticus is in sixth grade, he was tasked with presenting a self-reflective piece as a portion of our allotted time. While there were no surprises today, it was reassuring… Continue reading Weird and Wonderful Wednesday

Proud Papa

Mid-Semester Reports I just finished a late morning snack. Toasted sourdough with (arguably too much) butter, honey and Maldon salt. While eating, I read through the recently available progress report for my sixth grader, Atticus. Without getting too emotional, let’s just say, I was more than proud.

More than you can… Continue reading Blog to Vlog

Sleep-In Saturday

Breakfast for one, since the kids are having cereal with their cartoons.

Shhhhh Excitedly, both kids are sleeping in. Honestly, it’s a bit of a rarity that both of them will be tired enough, comfortable enough, and just able enough to really sleep in on a Saturday morning. For me, it’s nice to know they are. Tales from a Different Era Yesterday, the kids had the pleasure… Continue reading Sleep-In Saturday
