Back-to-School Is Great, Unless You’re the Baby Sibling

If you're three years old and you've spent the entire summer playing with your older sisters, the first day of school is a rude awakening!

Big sisters pack up their backpacks, march out the door in their fancy new sneakers, brag about getting to see old friends and make new ones, and you're left behind with Mama.

Now what?

I Hate Lowercase Letters

It was parent night at Colton's school last night.  He has a great teacher, she's doing great stuff, and I was glad to see that Colton is doing well.  She gave us the chance to write a note to our kids and leave it on their desks

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

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

She has to turn in homework every Friday by 8am, and if she doesn't she gets sent to study hall for the day.  Yikes!  So we decided that homework time would be Monday through Thursday at 4pm.  She has to sit down and do the homework before she gets the Wii privileges or before softball practice.  Homework at 4 is one of our resolutions.

I read about one mom setting the "no electronics after 8pm" resolution.  Do you have any?

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!

I ran across a list today of 50 colleges and Universities with happy freshman.  Did Boise State make the list?

First Day Of School Pics Dominate Facebook

I love looking at all the back-to-school pics on social media this time of year.

One of my sassy, fun (and kid-less) Facebook friends said just now, "Um...Did school start?"  Haha! What makes you say that?!

Yeah...maybe we parents are guilty of overloading Facebook with backpack pics, but we don't have anything else exciting going on. Sideways wink!

A Fifth Grade Football Team Dressed Like Their Water Boy, Because He Was Bullied
