When I run errands I usually try and avoid as much traffic and congestion as possible. I mean, who wants to deal with more of that than necessary, right? Anyway, the quest for a seamless route back to my house usually has me driving through a neighboring development instead of traveling the standard roads. And, each and every time I drive through this development on the way home I pass this sign:

Today the girls and I had a super busy day. There were 3 therapy appointments, one trip to the doctor, two trips to the pharmacy, one trip to the vet, two loads of laundry, well.....you get the idea. After we dropped the prescription off at the pharmacy drive-thru we had about 10 minutes to do something and since it takes me that long to get the girls out of the car we took a short drive to look at the outside of the school where Emma might go in October.

On a rainy Sunday afternoon. Just an ordinary day. Our little girl embarked on a right of passage.

|As we start thinking about Back to School, I keep thinking about the information I uncovered while researching Senate Bill 2860 - Preventing Harmful Restraint and Seclusion in Schools Act that I wrote about in this post. |
Did you know that children are being harmed and killed in our schools? Consider the following incidents. Please note that I've only provided a few examples from across the country that show how children are not protected at school. To read the many more examples, you can read what was reported here.
Deaths resulting from restraint or seclusion:
If you want Senate Bill 2860 to pass, please call your State Senator and ask them to support this bill.

- Chris is still running quite a bit. He is getting ready for the half-marathon in Philly in September, but the hot weather is making it harder to get in all the longer runs he wants. His work is always busy in the summer and this one seems to be busier than ever implementing all the technology upgrades at the school.
- As for me, I continue to take lots of photos. I've even been asked to take a few photos for friends and that is a pretty big honor for me. I've also been trying to find a bit of time here and there for sewing. I took a class on making tote bags and just love the bag I made even though I was surprised at how much work went into it. I'm also excited that I am now a contributing writer to the blog Hopeful Parents and will post there once a month. More on that next week.
- The house has had no movement or activity. According to our last weekly report there is a 36 month inventory of houses in our zip code. Ouch! So, in addition to the recent price reduction we made, Chris and I are discussing our plan B.
