The school board sent an email suspending school indefinitely, and the saving grace of this week and next technically being Spring Break is that it buys me some time to figure out how I'm going to keep the kid up on her academic skills when she thrives on the school routine and has drawn a firm boundary between what she does at school and what she's willing to do at home. (Also, I'm not a teacher or a special education aide so I'll have to go easy on myself too.)

How cute is this cloud?! I signed up for a weaving workshop thinking that this was a technique I didn't know, but it's just plain weave that puffs up because the roving is too thick to lay flat with the warp.
