This year, the boys decided they wanted to know what it felt like to be “normal” like the kids who spent their days in a school building. Off they went to fifth and sixth grades at a new charter for the arts and I was left in silence. Quite possibly the first silence I had experienced in twelve years. It was beautiful.
