True Confessions of a Low Parenting Moment
I don’t envy the plight of our area newscasters today. With the “snowpocalypse” behind us, it’s all too easy for even the most forgiving and diplomatic among us to raise and eyebrow and say, “really? All the hype…?!” Like many, I was relieved this morning to see some other news begin to creep into the forecast, and was eager to see what would be considered important enough to make it through the narrow window for non-weather related news. Settled into my comfy couch with my hot cup of tea, I was especially interested when the teaser line was about a cat. Being an animal lover, I suffered through the commercials to experience the benefit of the full story. The headline ran something like this: “Cat struck by car and buried as dead shows up on neighbor’s doorstep days later.” The accompanying video was even more compelling – the cat, clearly alive and well, was licking its front legs which had turned from white to brown in the process of digging itself out of its eternal grave. Wow! You just can’t make that up! (You don’t have to take my word for it: http://www.wbtw.com/story/27955594/tampa-cat-mistaken-for-dead-digs-himself-out-of-grave)
“I was of service this weekend!” Kindergarten student, Cameron, joyfully reported to his teachers and classmates during Morning Meeting on Tuesday. I can’t think of a better statement to wrap up the accomplishments of the day. As a school, we were of service to many people this past Monday as we honored the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Joining forces with Stevens Cooperative School and Mustard Seed School for the Fifth Annual MLK Day of Service, our students, teachers and volunteer parents were able to make a difference in the lives of many people.
