Living Deliberately and with Gratitude

What I’m Reading: “Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life…And Maybe the World” by William H. McRaven. This book was referred to me by a parent of a past student (Deanna, if your reading this thank you). It’s a concise and easy to read reminder that the little things add up to bigger things. I especially liked the reminder to work together as a community, and the emphasis on an internal locus of control. Although written for adults, it’s totally accessible to children.

Building Confident Learners: Quality Time. Make time to enjoy something or learn something with your child. Live deliberately, and show them that they are an important piece of your life puzzle.

What Gives Me Joy: Spending time with family and friends. I visited some family friends last weekend in Asheville. I went for a couple of mountain runs, ate oysters, visited the Biltmore Estate, laughed a lot, watched a total eclipse, and felt really lucky.

The joy of learning. Together.
