Try Slowing Down


Gardens AGlow, Botanical Gardens, Boothbay


A few weeks ago a quote from Lily Tomlin appeared in my inbox:

“For fast-acting relief, try slowing down”.

That’s one of my resolutions for this 2018.   Along with a few other goals, one of my intentions is to organize our week with the aim of being home more often, and for longer stretches.  It turns out that running around in the car all week long is not very conducive to good home learning.   So, I am going to practice saying no to things that we don’t need in our week.  I’m not very good at that.  And, to hold myself accountable, I plan to report back here (more often than I have been) with notes about our learning.   Thanks for helping keep me on track.

If this cold stretch holds out staying home may be easier than I thought.  Turns out we don’t want to do much outside the house when temps hover on either side of 0° F        (-17° C).
