Tis The Season For Pumpkin Spice

I love the fall!  It's football, cool weather, tailgating food, and we start flavoring everything with pumpkin spice.  Yum!

Starbucks is already out with the Pumpkin Spice Latte, and I've already had one or three.  There's something else coming out by the end of the month that I wouldn't imagine needing the pumpkin spice flavor and it doesn't on a normal day.  But it might be tasty.

What Back-to-School Resolutions Do You Have As A Mom?

Finley, the 1st grader, brought home the first homework yesterday.

Freshman Are Happiest At These Colleges

I remember my freshman year of college being pretty stressful.  It was leaving home for the first time, being denied the chance to get into the sorority that my mom had been part of, gaining what turned out to be the freshman forty instead of the freshman fifteen, and generally feeling out of place and not knowing where to fit in.  But other than those things, my first year of college at the University of Nebraska was great!
