School's out for summer! I can't believe we made it to summer! I'm ready to lay by the pool and forget all my worries from this school year. My girl is ready for zero homework, late nights, and zero responsibilities! But...
Teacher Appreciation Week is nearly upon us and, if you're like me, your Instagram and Facebook feeds are filled with gift ideas for the special teachers in your life. Many of these are adorable and fun and would be...
