MINDFUL MOMENT OF THE WEEK!

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in my daily routine; drive to work, walk to my office, sit at my desk and get work done, shut down for the day, walk to my car...etc, that I forget to pay attention to the world around me.

How are you and your children finding moments in your routine to pause and find joy? Feel free to send me an email to share, I would really love to hear about it!

Please know that due to a variety of factors, the structure and scope of Phase 1 will differ between every school in the Point Loma cluster.
