Our Graduate

May 23, 2016

It’s been a team effort. And Team Smith is victorious!

Mari graduated this past weekend from her amazing alternative school. Something to be said for a graduation class of 12. I hope someday everyone can have access to the education path that best suits their child. We had to search and experiment and fight convention and thank goodness we had the resources to provide an environment where she could thrive.

My wish is that this becomes the norm. Fulfilling education in an emotionally and physically safe environment – not just for those of us who are fortunate but for everyone. Every child’s right. Not a privilege.  The educational system in this country is broken, but we don’t have to just sit and take it.

But for right now, I am taking a breather. Celebrating with my family. And getting ready for our next phase where our daughter gives higher education a try.

Thank goodness there is a summer before that phase begins!
