As you may have guessed, the kids are out of school, I’m mostly not at work, and this blog has gone into summer mode. I’ve used the onset of summer as an excuse to go on something of a holiday from the blogosphere (well, almost), and I can report that life goes on quite happily. (When necessary, I remind myself of this cartoon.)
I’ll still be posting once in a while, but I won’t be keeping up my usual pace. In the meantime, check out this post by northTOmom, which I wish I had written myself, on the mindlessness of what passes for “school spirit.” Or this article by Anne Marie Slaughter. Or FedUpMom’s ongoing account of her temporary experience with unschooling as her family is on an extended trip.
(One of my summer projects is to digitize our old family photos. The one above is of me with my best friend Maria in the summer of 1969, before either of us had started school. Happy times!)
