Hi Rebecca-I crave the simpler quiet life of years gone by. I know I sound like an old lady, but I really miss the days where children could go outside to play without parents panicking if they did know where they were every minute. When I was a child we would go outside and not come home until it got dark out. We would know as soon as the street lights went on, it was time to head home. Either that or one of our Moms would call out the window, dinner, and everyone went running home.....Ahh the simpler days!!

Happy Tuesday!!

No, you are not nuts. We really have lost our way, and the really sad thing is, I have to deal with most of this nonsense as a teacher...
