Hi, friends! I submitted my last grad school application yesterday. I expected to feel celebratory, but instead I feel like I did at the end of running a half-marathon, as though I limped across the finish.
I recently read “David and Goliath” by Malcolm Gladwell. The book discusses how our assumptions about strengths and weaknesses are sometimes wrong.
In the middle of the book, Gladwell writes about people who have endured trauma, and in particular, people who endure the loss of a parent while they are children.
Henry returned to school this week, and all seems to be going fine, though it’s hard to know what goes on in a class of 3-year-olds.
We tried to get the traditional back-to-school photo, and you’re going to see a lot of Henry’s personality here. He loves to talk, climb, and invent things. He does not love to hold still.
