This week I posted about our decision to homeschool Hailey and honestly I expected some pushback but instead you guys were supportive and wonderful and came up with a million great suggestions and I was a little shocked at how many of you are currently homeschooling or were homeschooled yourself. Thank you. You are magic.
Last night Hailey and I were considering what the school mascot should be and we decided on Vin Weasel, a battered antique weasel we found at a resale shop who was originally crawling on a log but was pretty much made to ride or die (for knowledge).
And to answer the obvious question, yes, I’m currently looking for a remote control motorcycle so Vin Weasel can speed through the house and around the neighborhood and scare the shit out of the squirrels but I’m a little concerned that our neighborhood owl (Owl Roker) will think he’s a snack so for now he’s just staying on the toy motorcycle that I push around the house and freak the cats out with.
Several of you asked if you could be accepted to Lawson Academy for Gifted Strangelings. A giant group of misfits around the world continuing to learn and grow while they avoid the assholes and support each other? YES PLEASE.
You are in. You are all in.
And I’m so grateful for it.
PS. Is there a school shirt? Of course there is.
