This is the last week of true summer break - which we moved into after our long Covid-19 spring break. It seems incredible that we could actually be going back to in person learning, but as of today, that is truly the plan.
My reading has picked up a bit these past few weeks, which is a bit unfortunate that it's taken me until the end of summer to really get in the groove.
Today we are still without cell phone service after a derecho (a new weather term to me) moved through Iowa yesterday. Although we have no damage here, many, many people have horrible damage. My husband heard that 40 cell towers went down, so it may be a while before things are back to normal. Much of the day we also had no internet. Being without both cell service and the internet was rather eye-opening as I reached for my phone nearly constantly. Perhaps I need to unplug more often.
