With the removal of holiday lights, you quickly find how cold, wet, and gray the days are this time of year. We usually joke about the idea of moving someplace else during this time of year, but bemoan the idea of actually moving. So what if? What if we had a winter home? Where would […]
Back from a hiatus with a new post. Check it out.
The Strength of Summer Why are summers important? School years are long, arduous, and challenging. Yes, I am aware that “teachers get the summers off”, however, what most people don’t realize is that teachers work at least a summer’s worth extra during the course of a school year.
