A few weeks ago all corners of my world were filled with recommendations about watching this video.  I put it off for awhile and I wish I hadn’t.  Parents at our school appreciated knowing about it and recommended I post a link on our school blog.  Please watch it when you get a chance.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imaW-TabxOE
