Winter Term, Week 2 Intentions

For several reasons, Morning Meeting only happens three times a week at our house. I’m finally learning to only plan three meetings. It took me a whole semester to figure that out. Between our CC community day and a  couple of other activities, we just don’t get to it four or five times. Three will just have to suffice in this season
