Here’s a PLAYLIST if you want to check them out!

But, I’m going to work on some goals for September, and let’s review at the end of the month to see how well I do on that!

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.

Everything but her backpack and lunchbox are gone now. Dropped them off Thursday when we enrolled her 🙂

One of the dupes is for Julie 🙂 I got them Wednesday. Finished the little blue one on Wednesday, had Acheron finished by the end of Thursday 😉

Taken at Kindergarten enrollment. Such enthusiasm right?
