Ring the School Bell 113/180 Days
We may have a rather humble home, but we have a most interesting backyard. There are two levels which we call upstairs and downstairs. There are different areas to hang out in: a bench swing on the side, the main patio where we entertain family and guests, and the large lawn downstairs to host field day events.
My Dad, visiting from Indiana and originally an immigrant from Canada, loves to pick out a quiet spot and read the paper in our backyard, while sipping his red wine. The girls and I take turns hanging out with him, and talking about anything and everything. Today, he enjoyed many games of Pick-up Sticks with the girls, painted a watercolor, played jazzy tunes on the piano, enjoyed Sabrina’s piano classical repertoire, as well as worked out Sudoko puzzles with Melissa. What a perfect day!

If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.

Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.
I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.
A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.
It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.

** Note to the Reader- Today’s narrative is part of our family’s school journey from a few years ago, during my eldest daughter’s senior year in high school, a rather emotional year, with its many ups and downs. Every day’s blog entry coincides with a day from that special year. It can be read from the beginning by selecting the “Ring the School Bell 180” category on the side bar. Commence with the narrative, “The School Bell- What comes to mind when ‘you’ hear that bell?”
