    Friday Favorites

    Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a great week and if your child started school this week (in whatever shape or form) I hope it’s going well. Our district will hopefully go back with a hybrid option after Labor Day. The boys will go in person Monday and Tuesday and then have virtual school Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Black, people of color, black lives matter, George Floyd, police, protests, murder, riots, neck, and knee have been spoken in my home and on my social media feeds more than I can count. I’ve felt every feeling and cried happy and horrified tears. Some people will say this isn’t about me. Others will say it’s about all of us.
