Yes! We were driving home yesterday (I'm in SB) and there was so much traffic heading south. I was commenting to dh how we need a way to keep all of the LA/OC people out so they don't bring it with...

I've always been an avid reader, and I have read a ton during most of this quarantine period. However, with all of the stress and unknowns with school starting, the closer we get the less I seem to...

If I could afford it I'd take this year off regardless. It's going to be a sh!t show at best. So my answer to your question is a resounding yes!

The thing I find difficult with these type of things is that my county is really high, but my city is fairly low. Our numbers are really skewed because the northern part of the county is really bad.

With so much uncertainty around school I've had a harder time concentrating on reading this month. :(

We have a lot of families doing that where I live. Some are getting together and hiring a teacher. Others are creating schedules so that each family does some of the teaching/monitoring. I'll be...

I put them on my library wishlist. Sometimes if I come across one that looks good while I'm on my phone I'll just take a screenshot.

I was considering projecting my screen up on to my tv. That way I could still use the webcam on my laptop but have the bigger screen. I haven't tried it yet, though, so can't decide if that's what I...

We are strongly encouraged to work from school, but at this point it's not a mandate.


I'm really surprised any districts are requiring teachers to work from home. Are they supplying the internet...

Is that the poor man's answer to desks?! Yikes! I'd tell them asap that they need returned and you'd rather have traditional lap desks. There's no way those will work well in kinder.

I read this before, and what bothers me about it is it doesn't say what age the campers are. It only mentions kids being under 21. Were these high school aged kids? Middle school? Elementary? That's...

I think I'm finally over the disappointment, however I still have NO idea how to do kindergarten over zoom. None. It's just so wrong for my little babies. I'm not excited at all, I'm dreading it. And...

I think I'm always disappointed with movie versions. At least when they make a tv series there's more room to delve into the original story. It's one thing when they change or omit details, and a...

Final mountain days :(


Uncertainty is hard.
Can I quit?
Hmmm... truck driver?
Trader Joe's bagger?
Drive through cashier?
Anything sounds better!

Oh my gosh yes! I've thought of this two. The other 3 classes do tons of seatwork. This isn't the monumental shift for them that it is for me. :(

Split it up. The teens are the hardest set of numbers for young children, and take the longest to learn (because they don't make any sense). Start with 1-5, then 1-10, then add the teens. Usually...

I see where you are coming from, and from an organizational standpoint it makes a ton of sense.
