I am fairly convinced, at this point, that homeschooling your kids because of your ~values is a bad idea, and that a lot of parents shouldn’t homeschool, and that hybrid school is a terrible, terrible idea.

This morning Sava literally just sat out in the front yard buck naked and played with the mud in the planter. I really just love that kid.

It was kind of incredible. And Nico Muhly is, like, what? He cut off one of Sufjan’s beautiful introspective ramblings and I was like, ‘Fo’real, Nico? Suf hasn’t even said anything...
