Back to School By The Numbers

Well, the school year got back into full swing at the end of August, and while I was sad to say “good-bye” to time with the kids, I was also more than ready to say “hello” to routine…and freedom. School started for Hayden on a Monday and the rest of the kids followed suit on…

Back to School Prep

This week, I’ve been trying to get The Older back into the grove of going to bed at 7:30 pm and doing ‘work.’ In the beginning of summer, I was really good at making sure he read for at least 30 minutes a day and works on second grade worksheets, but when the move came,…
