First Day Of School Signs

super cute printable back to school signs

I don’t know about you, but I’m in denial about summer nearing its end. I’d like to tack at least another month onto summer! However, back-to-school time comes with new excitement of its own. For me, school supplies are the best part. Mind you, I don’t have any kids of my own, so when I […]


D’s in Daycare!

D started school (well, daycare) a few weeks ago! He’s in the same center as K, although in a different classroom. It’s been a bit of a rocky start, but of course that’s totally normal. Up until this point he’s been with my lovely MIL while I’m at work (3-4 days a week), and the change […]

It was parents only, and since we didn’t have a babysitter for the night, my husband left work […]

Off to School for Scribble–and Mama!

A few weeks ago, Scribble and I both started back to school!  I work part time as an instructor at a local junior college, and this semester I am teaching two classes. Additionally, this year I started back to graduate school, and am taking classes part-time, and soon will begin interning in a middle school. […]
