On day 12 of my 15 day stint of solo parenting, I'm heading out to get some tacos before an epic 2-1/2 hour back-to-middle-school night. Ruth did this last year and now it's my turn. I'm going to ride my bike to middle school, just like I did in 1981 when I was in 7th grade.
Update: back-to-school night was interesting and fun. I was pleasantly surprised. I support and admire public school teachers by default, and was extra impressed by Arabelle's teachers. She's going to learn and grow so much this year.
