    Back to School : IT’S TODAY

    Happy first day of school Gliddenites! Parents, I hope you have been able to sit down and nice big cup of coffee (or wine) this morning in QUIET when your kiddos all finally got the heck out of your house. Lets take a moment to sit, breath, enjoy the silence… and prepare our selves for the madness that will ensue when everyone gets home from school! Alright, I know I don’t have kids yet but I did live at home for a year after college…

    Back to School: Calendar

    Happy August everyone! For as long as I can remember, I have absolutely LOVED the month of August. One last family vacation for the summer, school registration, school clothes, SCHOOL SUPPLIES (the best thing ever is a box of new pencils and a fresh journal) and of course, actually starting school. I love it so much. I would spend hours – no, DAYS – planning my theme for the year. I would get all matching notebooks and folders and enough art supplies to be able…
