I ended up accomplishing almost none of yesterday’s to do list, mostly because I napped for ~2.5 hours accidentally.
Sometimes Sunday just needs to be lazy . . .
We did get the kids outside twice – once for this walk (look how pretty the colors are! No filter!) and then Josh swam with them while I prepared this dinner masterpiece:
Summery corn soup (used this recipe though I was lazy and just stuck an immersion blender in at the end) + Dungeness crab because Annabel had been asking for snow crab and this was the closest thing Publix had this week!
Interesting podcast listen: Freakonomics- the Pros and Cons of Reparations. Though I have to note that Glenn Loury (Black economics professor at Harvard) seemed to be saying things that were in opposition to what I am currently reading in Ibram X. Kendi’s How to Be an Antiracist.
A teacher’s take on the current situation: As I’ve written about, we plan on sending C & G to an in-person school in the fall. This post did not change my current plans, but it is definitely valuable reading.
Another school option: Interestingly, our local JCC is basically doing pod learning in a program called JSchooled. Essentially, they will have counselors supervising kids with their computers as they participate in distance learning, with full days of care available. Definitely not affordable for every working parent that needs the coverage, but a good in-between option for some. Wonder if programs like this are popping up elsewhere.
