The Back to School Scramble

Phew! I made it. I actually survived the morning of the first day of school. Was very happy to send all five kids on their way without any drama. It was a crazy early morning for me. The first bus for my elementary schoolers is scheduled to arrive at 6:20 (but they have to be out there 10 minutes early), then the middle schooler gets picked up at 7:30 and finally I have to drive my high schoolers because their school is no longer in our district, so no buses. [sarcasm font]It was so much fun walking the girls to the bus stop (only a block away) in the dark and then waiting 30 minutes for the bus to show up.[/sarcasm font] Thankfully it finally did, and I was back …

Summertime Blues

  Growing up, I spent a lot of time outdoors.  Especially during the summer months. My brothers and I were outside for as many hours as possible each day, playing with all the other neighborhood kids. We took swimming lessons in the morning and then spent the rest of the day at the community pool, by ourselves, just like all of our friends. My mom dropped us off and picked us up when we were ready to leave (usually when the pool closed for the day). We had a couple of dollars each to pick up something (candy) from the snack bar when we got hungry. After we installed a pool in our backyard everyone would come over to our house first thing in the morning to swim for pretty much the entire day. …

JCPenney Optical’s Back to School Promotion [Review and Giveaway]

I received a JCPenney gift card for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. All thoughts and opinions here are my own. It’s Back to School time, y’all! It’s the Most Wonderful Tiiiiime of the Year… sing it with me. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my girls, but I work from home and it’s nearly impossible to concentrate on work with five daughters underfoot. I have been counting down the minutes until school starts since about two weeks into summer break! The biggest negative about Back to School is the expense that comes with it. Clothes, check-ups, school supplies, new shoes, new glasses just to name a few! I have five daughters (four of them wear glasses). It’s a very expensive time of the …
