5 days

To be brief in a fast-moving day: CPR and first aid training with the teachers at Parker School for eight hours in a field of thirty training mannequins that, splayed on the floor, looked like a terrible kind of doll massacre; plumbing and floor drilling in between our CPR trainer’s talks about emergency situations; some furniture arranging. Oh, and prep for what promises to be a great night with our enrolled families at a to-school potluck to kick off this school year. It feels like a race to the finish – but at the finish line is yet another, more exciting race to start running.
