Often they read peacefully side-by-side as many snapshots on this blog show, like this recent one while they waited for us outside on a weekday morning…

Friday at MX

Wednesday, November 4th, 2015

This is a Friday afternoon on the playground at Jonah’s elementary school. A DJ is playing.  Some kids are dancing, some are climbing on the play structures, some are playing kick-ball, and some are swinging.  It just seems though, with music as a background, they’re doing it all with a little more verve, with a spring in their step and a shake to their hip. Lilah and Jonah were no exception. I marvel at this. I love it.

Positive Attitude Presentation

Friday, October 30th, 2015

Jonah’s teacher has developed a life skills curriculum along with another teacher at the school. Each week there is one homework assignment that is social/emotional in nature as opposed to the usual, more academic work.  So far this has taken the form of Jonah coming home with a topic, like flexibility or effort, and he has to interview us on that topic and write-up our thoughts. Last week she started adding on to this and the kids had to present what they learned. They could present however they wanted–skits, songs, poetry–and they could present in the classroom or have their parents send video.  Jonah wrote a poem and asked us to record him.  Never one to be far from the action, Lilah made her way into the frame, looking very positive.
