It's hard to believe that I will only see my 1st and 2nd graders 2 more times before Thanksgiving!! (We have the whole week off, I'm looking forward to some quality family time) It always seems like there's so much to do and so little time to do it!!

My school has their "Parent-Engagement Nights" this week. I hope I can get another post in this week but if I don't it's because I'll be at school from 7:00 am- 8:00 pm on Wednesday and Thursday!!! Have a great week everyone!
