It's been an interesting first quarter to the school year. For the past two to three months almost every aspect of my day has seen a shift. We have a new administration with a different communication and management style. Both my kids decided to join their school's musical which drew me back into the set design. And we decided it was time to explore churches closer to home.
Yesterday, my daughter and I enjoyed an afternoon along the archery trail at Racoon State Park, a rare moment of respite in a hectic late summer. I also finished up the slideshow for my conference workshop later this week. And so my goal over the second quarter of school is to work at widening my margins. This requires an intentional disconnect or limiting of my attention as I attempt to widen the margins again.
