  1. Thanks so much for sharing, Amanda. I've been looking for a few last items for the boys, particularly something "new" preschool-wise for Alek. I actually went and ordered a couple of your picks on Amazon. YAY!

  2. You've got a lot of fun things planned for the year. I'm still finishing my plans and tweaking even though we started this week.


Thank you for commenting, I love hearing from you!
