It's been a busy week — LOTS of meetings about the school situation. Some good news, of course — a school won't be closed (yet) — but the fight has just begun. This has got many people engaged and ready to work together to improve the situation on the west coast. Our kids and our schools deserve our support. I'm doing what I can, working with the Save Our Schools group, handing out petitions, encouraging people to write letter, educating myself. But doing what I can also includes continuing with my philosophy that education doesn't just happen Monday to Friday from 9-ish to 3-ish. We live in a small town, we can't have it all, but we do have so much that people don't take advantage of. At times, we need to focus on what we do have, rather than what we don't. Today, that's what I'll do.
Jackie did a little bit of celebrating this week, too. She got out her camera and hopped on her bike to see what flowers were blooming this week. Here's what she found.
Remember the fundraising dinner for Haiti tonight. From 5 to 7 at the Community Hall.
