Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website,

Red, gold and green

A year ago, we made the shift from a wonderful, sheltered private school to a wonderful, boisterous public school. I worried about my sensitive middle child, who seemed to grieve the loss of his old classmates most deeply, and was taking the longest to find his place amid the bustle and hum.

Today, on the second day of his second year there, he brought home this self-portrait. I think it says he's doing alright.

A nicely drawn image. Such careful use of color and I like that he didn't try to fluff it up with a toothy grin.

Oh, I love this. We, too, made a switch last year from Catholic school to a very progressive charter. We go back in two weeks and I'm very nervous. Perhaps we'll get a little self-portrait as well!
