The Years are Short

The trimester is coming to a close in a couple of weeks and deadlines are looming--home projects, progress reports, history day, etc.  In the midst of paper mache, work samples, clay, whatever the medium in your house, it can feel overwhelming.  Remember we are striving for excellence and not perfection.  As Susie Theule so eloquently stated in last week's update, sometimes we "must remember the importance of the good-enough parenting concept, or as Mother Theresa suggests, love not extraordinarily, but 'without getting tired.'"

Take a few moments to watch this video and remember that the years are indeed short. Happy Monday.
