"He's ok, he just got headbutted," they say as they lead him in the house, blood pouring from his face.
"Ith not teeth," he says, mouth full of blood.
Just another day of kids who play outside. Thanks for the heart attack, guys.

Attention all STEM teachers- Rube Goldberg machines are not easy fun for the end of the year. They are hard and require bits and pieces large and small to be pulled from all over my house.
13yo: Do you ever realize, the days take so long but the weeks go so fast.
Kid, you have no idea. <3
I've shared this before but man, it blows me away every time. This is the most expensive bracelet I own:
These aren't my exact feelings, but they're certainly familiar.
I just saw a post that I think was meant to be funny, but is just untrue: All the homeschoolers are laughing at us fools trying to teach our kids.
Aside from homeschooling being very different than virtual school or distance learning, I don't think anyone is laughing at anyone.
We weren't/aren't homeschoolers, but as someone who has worked from home for a while, I'm not laughing at those who are just realizing the struggles. I empathize and laugh/cringe with you while you tell the story of how a client called right as the mail came and your dog lost their mind. And how you were in the middle of an important pitch and your kid-- who was making grilled cheese by themself while you were trying to keep your job-- set off the fire alarm. But no one's laughing out of spite or smugness.
While teachers are in the spotlight, I think it would be really hard to find ANYONE whose job hasn't changed in some way in the last 6 months. And I don't see anyone laughing about it (unless it's laughing so we don't cry, which I have done/seen some of hahaha).
Even more true this year as many efforts will go unrecognized.
And "maneuvering" through the school year seems like the perfect word. Whether you're flying through or struggling, it all takes a fair amount of maneuvering.
Haha this was pretty close to my schedule for several years.
(Better now that the kids are older.)
