Turning 9
Do you ever think about the childhood your children are having? I do. I wonder if they'll remember me as someone who yelled at them a lot. I kind of do. I know that the majority of our life is spent doing happy things that make all of us have a better life....

Teaching Life
My friend Tara took last weekend to clear her head. She spent time on her farm doing hard outdoor work. She said she needed it. For teachers this time of year is straight out exhausting. There's the weight of the closing year, the need for final grades, the...
