    I decided that this website was long overdue for a content and theme overhaul, so I sat down at the kitchen table this weekend and made it happen. Vivienne was playing around with my phone and snapped this photo, so I thought I’d share it. Longer post on the new website coming soon.

    Bus stop selfie with Nora. This week she moved from her tiny charter school with only 18 eighth graders to the public middle school with over 200. And now she rides the bus.
