But, I think we'll get through the turbulence and will have smoother sailing before long... maybe even reason to smile. Take what you do control in this equation and get creative.
|A day later and a world of difference: Morning walk to the pier.|
How can you, in a manner of speaking, take the kids to the creek to turn over rocks or walk to the pier with your feet in the water? I'm thinking we need to find ways to be more thorough, comprehensive. Go deeper into subjects and start tackling all of this from an earlier literacy level. Address a wider array of learning styles with more kinds of media than ever before. Whatever your approach, if making the best of the present is hard to fathom, look to the future.
