i'm doing my

home work...

… and I want to share it with you.

The beginning of summer is here!

At school, we are galloping toward our 5th graders' graduation.  At recess, the students are leaping about under the cotton that streams from the cottonwood trees.  New flowers are everywhere and lush, green growth.

Here's to the power within each of us to seek change and to work for peace, and reason, and justice.

Be brave and pay attention!
