Really? Already?

Well... it happened. And we're not even a month into the new school year. I've got a cold. I mean, it's certainly not the end of the world. I've had worse. But to think we've gotten three full weeks of school under our belts. And even saying that is a stretch, because the first week … Continue reading Really? Already?
