Happy 7th Birthday, Monkey!

My Dear Monkey, Here we are again. April 19th. You’ve been reminding us for a good week that this was coming. Your Birthday.

Why I hate Hobby Lobby (Not really)

Isaac’s birthday is coming up in a few days. Since we’re on spring break here (yay!) when his birthday falls, we decided to send in his treats and things Friday.

Maternity Leave + First Grade = ?

This year, we were blessed to have a much better experience than Kindergarten. The rub in all of this? Isaac’s teacher left for maternity leave. Her last day was Thursday. The kids get the long term sub starting tomorrow. Now, let’s get one thing straight here. I have NOTHING against this long term sub. I Continue reading →
