An unspeakable tragedy occurred yesterday in Uvalde, TX. Another devastating school shooting. More innocent, beautiful little lives were lost, along with 2 of their beloved teachers. We have all seen the television reports, the internet, social media and newspaper articles. I do not wish to retell the story, I will absolutely not go into a discussion about the politics of it all. I simply am heart
School's out for summer! Almost. For some, the final day of school is this week followed by graduation. For others, there is one more grueling week left. Parents, I'm sure we all wish we could say it will be smooth sailing from here but as a mother of 3, I can safely say, that is absolutely not the case. A parent's job does not end when school does.

I was having a chat with some other mom friend's and one of them said she 'heard' that because of the new Omicron variant of COVID and resurgence in cases here locally, it may only be a matter of time before our kids homeschool once again. I got 2020 flashbacks and I do not like it one bit.
When I heard that MISD was the first to get back to school this year I was truly scratching my head? Why? Why are they going back literally the 2nd day of August? I don't live in Midland, so I asked someone more familiar with the situation to explain and now I get it. Midland ISD has implemented what they call 'intersessions' this calendar school year.
