It’s MEA week. It’s the week that Minnesota public schools get time off for teachers to attend meetings.
Ava, age 12, asks if we have to do homeschool today.
“Grandma gets to go to an apple orchard today,” Ava says.
“Senior citizens have all the fun, don’t they?”
Instead of a trip to the apple orchard, we got a spelling test and the rest of the French and Indian War. And math.
Instead of the apples, Ava (a budding pie-maker) might make a mock apple pie with the green tomatoes we rescued from the garden.
It won’t be such a bad day.
