Ella started her first ballet/tap/gymnastics class today.  She was so adorable!  She has always been super shy and has never wanted to be involved in extracurricular activities, so I was shocked when she asked me to sign her up for dance this year.  She’s been taking private dance lessons all summer at a friends house, […]


I have been searching for well over a week for the perfect chore chart, and I could not for the life of me find exactly what I was looking for….cute, bright colors, correct chores, pictures (since the kids can’t read yet) and something that I could use regular stickers with and throw away at the […]
