It’s not painless
Distance learning should be getting easier for us. It’s been over 365 days since the kids have been full time. You’d think we’d know how to do this type of thing painlessly. It’s not painless.

This new normal isContinue reading “375 days since we’ve had to leave the house for school!”

What is the one thing that should be taught in school that isn’t already?
The other day I posted Life Skills – How to Reconcile a Checkbook which I actually did learn in elementary school long ago in the 1980s in New York and revisited in middle school in the 1990s. I’ve seen videos about a dad who teaches kids with no dad how to do basic tasks likeContinue reading “What is the one thing that should be taught in school that isn’t already?”
