My daughter, who is in 3rd grade, will not return to school till at least November due COVID19. I have to step up my game and help her navigate with her virtual schooling. This week I guided her and I was in the background listening to her teacher and classmates. One thing was very clear, [...]

She waves and blow kisses to every person who she feels needs one.
