I’m so lucky that I’m able to work from home. It lets me be flexible enough to volunteer in the classroom and take on larger roles in my kids’ lives (like coaching). But during the summer…well, I keep a schedule so the kids know what to expect, but there are some mornings where they wake up at the crack of dawn and fly through every planned activity before I’ve finished my morning assignments. On those days, I give thanks to Steve Jobs for inventing the iPod (with a special shout-out to the creators of Minecraft).
