A resource for families in Santa Cruz County
Re-evaluating our family lifestyles...
I am delighted with the ingenuity, generosity and grit displayed by families, teachers and community. You keep on knocking down fear and finding rainbows!

Last week's newsletter noted that parents are "joining more intimately in our children's educations." This is a good "mini-trend" which I hope will gain traction.

I'm curious what incipient trends you thoughtful parents are noticing. What changes, new practices, fading practices, revolutionary practices do you see resulting from your time totally at home with your work and the children's work?

What affects your family directly? What changes/keeps are you making in your homes? What would you change/keep in your community, state, country, the world?

Please forward this newsletter to friends! And give them this link: https://tinyurl.com/w9btgxd

Have a creative and bountiful weekend with your family, Parmalee

P.S. The new website launch is getting closer! The Summer Camp Guide is in process and coming soon.
