A new month...a new look.

It's officially September and time for a blog makeover.

I pulled out some of my favorite school-related items to create this picture. What you don't see in the picture, is that we also have a chalkboard (that was once in a former classroom) in our downstairs family room. The girls have had such much fun using the chalkboard and globe when "playing" school. Speaking of school, we attended Josie's kindergarten open-house last night. She's more than excited to start school next Tuesday. She couldn't wait to find her seat and hallway locker.

I can't believe my little girl is actually old enough to be in elementary school...sigh. While I'm rambling about school, Tuesday Morning, has these chocolate chip cookies on clearance. It's the school bus packaging that got me, but they taste pretty darn good too.

Happy September!
XOXO

Hooray for a new school year! I hope Josie loves Kindergarten this year!

You must post pictures of your chalkboard. I would love to have one!

She is so cute...how can she be old enough for kindergarten? Sigh... Kate, Zoey and Jake are starting school this year, too. Wah.

Love the new blog look!

Hard to believe how far Josie has come! Wondering if she has all day kindergarten...will that be hard on her? Maybe there is nap time...
What aboout Emma? Is she eager for school to start?! Middle school is such fun-I spent 24 years (plus my own growing up years) in middle school and it was my favorite! Never should have left it! LOL
Have a wonderful weekend! I plan to continue decorating for Halloween-but we will head to the cottage since our oldest son isnflying in. Yippee!

I subbed today, and about half way through the day I realized it is September 1! I'm kind of glad to see August go! Before you know it, it will be Christmas soon!

Josie will love kindergarten! Bet she is super excited. They are advertizing all day kindergarten out here, sounds like it would be such a long day for the kids. Have a great weekend!
