It’s that time! The kids are coming and you have about 12 million things spinning around in your head before they get there. This year, our team met a few weeks prior to all of the back to school craziness. We got our plans typed out and our copies made. By the time school started […]

When you are 6 months pregnant and going back to teach K, you’ve gotta pick your battle. Tackling a hot glue was just not happening this year. So, I’m going to confess…these are […]
