Back to School is Kicking my Butt!

TweetI realized I haven’t written in I don’t know how long, so I thought while I sit here enjoying a Redd’s Apple Ale I would write a little update! So, my son started 5th grade (next year Middle school…Ack!) and my daughter started 1st grade. I am in my last months of being a Cub […]

Birthday Weekend

Tweet So this weekend my son turns 11…holy hell..11 years old!! Time is moving so fast I really hate it sometimes. So often it seems we wish our days away.

Celebrating Christmas a Little Each Day

TweetMy goal this year is to something, Christmasy (excuse the spelling), each day. Things are so busy between school, life, family, Cub Scouts, and now Girl Scouts (Yes..I am leading both..call me crazy!). I feel that we don’t “celebrate” enough. My kids are 10 and 5, and both love Christmas! I love the crafts, baking, […]

Back to School and what it means to Mom

TweetSo it finally happened both of my kids went to school. This is the year The Girl started all day Kindergarten and The Boy is in Fourth Grade. I have not been alone in the house since he was born (he’ll be 10 this month!). Sure they went to preschool, but any preschool Mom knows […]
