If we want to stay connected, and dodge life-diminishing isolation, we have to re-invent ways of being together during this covid 19 season. No sooner have changing circumstances made old ways too risky, than some folks immediately begin creating new ones.
I would like to introduce you to the family of Melissa and Matt Fink. They have four children, Isaiah is 11, Maya 9, Hudson 4 and Malaya 3.
Our favorite family event this week was a hike with Micah, Jen, Audrey and Noah to one of our nearby trails, Rockstall Nature Preserve. Here’s my favorite quotes…
Serpent Mound: The Largest Effigy Mound In the World. This season of mixed
schooling styles creates
spaces for parents and
grandparents to design our
own field trips on subjects
we believe are important
for our children to learn.
By age twelve, my Boy Scout troop in Ogdensburg, New York was teaching me, reminding me, and teaching me again, to “Be Prepared.” Funny though, I can’t remember anything in particular that I learned about preparing back then. I don’t recall having a flashlight in my bedroom. I don’t remember any discussion about how to exit the second floor of our home if there was a fire.
Parents and grandparents and teachers, this show is for you. You too can make topsoil with the children you love. Build topsoil and build the future.
