Wordless Wednesday: Back to School

And we’re back. The Nine-Year-Old went back to school this week. Fourth grade already. Amazing. Astounding. 

If I were a normal parent, I’d post a picture of The Nine-Year-Old in her back-to-school outfit with her freshly washed and brushed back-to-school hair.  But both The Nine-Year-Old and I would rather share this:

About Shala Howell

I spent two decades helping companies like Bell Labs, Juniper Networks, and a genetic testing company that was later acquired by CVS translate some of the world’s most complicated concepts into actionable, understandable English. Now I'm working on a much harder problem -- fostering children’s curiosity and engagement in the scientific, artistic, and linguistic world that surrounds them. The first book in my Caterpickles Parenting Series, What’s That, Mom?, focuses on how to use public art to nurture children’s curiosity in the world around them. My next book will focus on science, and how parents without a science degree can answer their curious child's questions without enrolling in a college level refresher course. In the meantime, you can find me blogging about life with a very curious Eleven-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, chatting about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.blog, and tweeting about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.

      I know. I pretty much try to keep my working hours to while my daughter’s in school, which makes blogging in the summer a challenge. Glad to be back in the working mode now, though, even if it’s taking me a week or two to get back into the daily grind. Lots to catch up on, and it can feel overwhelming. *But* the bathroom renovation is done, I have spiffy new built-in filing cabinets (still empty, of course) and some fresh new bookshelves (half-full, because let’s be real about what my priorities are) in my office, and I have a planner full of to-dos just waiting for me to stop having fun on the internet and start accomplishing real stuff.

      See you around the pond (or around the prickly pear, I suppose, given where you are).
