How has work been?

Working on the world from here.....

Work has been very busy. I have had to start from scratch, because there was no real program...the students weren't expected to have any academics, it was more like babysitting when I came, except for the work the aides had done last year. There are also so many regulations to follow!

I resolutely agree with that sentiment!

I hope you get a good rest over the holidays, have a very Merry Christmas!

You know, Sharon, after thinking about it, I wish I had said "Change your child's world". Make it one in which they are accepted for who they are.

To hell with what everybody else thinks about our kids...they are ours to love before they leave us.

I love the quote that is attributed to Jackie Kennedy Onassis:
If you bungle raising your children, I don't think whatever else you do well matters very much.
