It has been a long and stressful weekend in New York as my daughter Lucy and we settled her final decision on college. As a result of the trip, Lucy decided to follow her heart over the great financial opportunities that were offered at another university. She will join the freshman class at Columbia College in August. Only time will tell how it will all work out. Even with financial assistance, the challenge is significant, and Jean and I will no doubt have regrets at the distance, difficulties and costs of traveling to New York from Arkansas. It also feels great to see Lucy so excited about her choice and we have great confidence in her abilities.

In the wood shop this morning as you see in the photos above and below, we made looms. Some of the first and second graders insisted they will start today, but the 3rd and 4th grades will wait until next week and we get to visit a local weaver for instruction.

While in Manhattan, I met a teacher from the oldest independent school in the US, Collegiate School for Boys. It covers grades kindergarten through 12 grades, and like Clear Spring School is accredited through one of the regional associations of the National Association of Independent Schools.
