Peaceful Schools

Durham Comments Off on Peaceful Schools

My son’s elementary school, Central Park School for Children started a program three years ago called Peaceful Schools that tackles bullying from a holistic perspective. My son’s teacher recently went on ABC 11 to talk about the program:

From a parent perspective, I really like the program. We haven’t had any problems at all with bullying at my son’s school and this program is a big reason for that. Right now it’s only at Central Park School and the Carolina Friends school, but it looks like they are looking to expand the program soon. I, for one, would be all for it.

Busy times and sick days

Durham, Life, North Carolina Comments Off on Busy times and sick days

It always seems like there’s way too much stuff happening. The big thing, though, is that Big-B started back to school last week. He’s in 2nd grade this year and likes it so far, so hopefully he’ll have a really good year. The first couple of weeks, though, are a bit rough as my wife is still in West Virginia at the summer camp where she works each summer. So, Big-B and I have been on our own. He’s been going to the afterschool program and seems ok with that. However, I’m not able to pick him up until 5:30pm at the earliest and his bedtime is normally 7:30 which leaves almost no time at all to eat supper, get ready for bed, and do anything else we might want to do (library, grocery store, Tour de France, etc…). But, things seem to be working ok. Thankfully, my wife gets back Thursday evening. I really have a newfound respect, though, for single parents.

Today has been fairly challenging as I managed to catch some sort of bug that has me keeping fairly close to the porcelin throne.  I haven’t eaten hardly anything since lunch yesterday and don’t really have any desire to.  I’m really hoping that things will feel much better tomorrow and this will just have been a 24 hour virus or something like that.

Feelin’ Good Lap Club

Durham Comments Off on Feelin’ Good Lap Club

My son’s elementary school has just started up a weekly program where the entire school, on Wednesday mornings, takes a walk around the block.  It’s playfully called the Feelin’ Good Lap Club and it’s a good chance not only for the kids to get out and get some exercise, it’s a good chance for the parents to walk with the kids and get some exercise too.  The walk takes about 20 minutes.  Since rain has effectively shut down most mountain biking in the Triangle lately, it’s good to do something to get out.
