I can’t believe I’m the mom of a 3rd grader and a 5th grader. Am I even old enough for that? Oh well! They looked adorable, and didn’t mind posing for me at all! YAY!

Oh, and ignore “Crazy Eye Ethan” in the bottom picture. 😀

Organize Me Please


It’s all about being organized this school year, at least for this momma. I’m going to keep track of projects due and things like scouting, work, etc. I’m loving it thus far, but I’ve only had it a day, :lol:.

I got a Plan Ahead Mom’s 18 Months Planner. I had a version of this before, and loved it, so I was eager to get it again. I love the print. Zebra print just suits me. Though, now, I’m worried Madison might try to steal it 😉

Back to School Time … Part 01

School starts August 15th this years from the 2013-14 school year. We’re going for a more “mature” theme for the kids. Well, at least something that doesn’t scream “I’m a little kid.” Madison is going into 5th Grade, and Ethan’s going into 3rd, so it fits.

Ethan was super excited to find a camouflage one. I like that it was pixelized grays, and not the traditional brown or green version of camo. Just looks better to me.
