No more Lesson plans to write. No more tests to grade. No longer are my boys my homeschool students. I am changing out of my homeschool hat into my personal hobbies hat. Gardening, fitness, photography, part time employment.
I just answered our front door. There was a kid there, about 10.
KID: "would you like to donate money to our elementary school"
I am kinda dumbfounded at that and look at his plain manila envelope with a sheet of white paper with the name of the school in plain type and then some lines with 1 person's name and amount they gave.
KID: "It's for a jog-a-thon.
ME: "when is the jog-a-thon" (the paper has no info besides school name, kid's name, and 1 donation)
