My children attend Kings High School.  When the alert from the school system came in, I immediately called my son.  I wanted to tell him before someone else did.  I wasn’t sure if he knew this child just one grade below him who was killed on the highway.  My son knew him, but not well.  Apparently Read more…

This morning I drove my daughter to school.  She gets really anxious if we are running late on any level and to her,  on time is late.  It can be quite stressful to drive her anywhere and the deal we have brokered is she cannot get a driver’s license until she sits patiently with breath Read more…
