Giving of the Thanks
The month when we suddenly sold Tim's house in Eugene, after having been on the market since spring and embarked on several house hunting adventures to Portland, driving up and down the I-5 corridor.

Project-based learning at our house is having a hey-day in this time of COVID.
The boys continue to astonish us with their capacity for creativity, for learning, for problem solving, for reciting commercials they hear on YouTube Kids (okay, that part concerns me just a bit.) Overall, this year of distance learning has been good for them. Mostly because they are pre-kindergarten and so their virtual learning classroom is everywhere and utilizes everything (within reason, safety first) so they build all day long. I don't know if they will be socially ready for kindergarten but they will be eager to learn, as their level of curiosity is astounding. I worry most about their ability to learn what someone else tells them they should learn, rather than having the freedom to explore on their own. I know. I know. We all have to learn this and the best place is in kindergarten, in order to survive in this world. I am grateful (and privileged) that COVID happened when I had a job where working from home was required and at a time when the boys were not "in school."
