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 […]

What a fun weekend I had this weekend being showered yet AGAIN! Oh my word. I am surprised I didn’t have to rent a U-haul to get everything back to our house. This baby is going to be decked out for the first year of her life. Goodness. It was such a special day and […]

It’s Fall Break week! Oh my WORD. And a field trip. And a Fall party. Somewhere in there we are going to be learning about pumpkins and the life cycle. When we go to the farm on Tuesday, we get to walk around the pumpkin patch and pick pumpkins off the vine. This is a […]
