Bittersweet, precious time

Have you ever sat around and wondered what it would be like when your kids leave home? Peanut is 12. I can’t believe we’re already to this point, because in six years, he’ll be going off to college. Where has the time gone? I guess I’m on this melancholy vent after attending my nephew’s 16th […]

6th Grade Math and End of Grade Testing

Sixth grade math and end of grade testing are going to take the one or two blonde hairs left on my head and finish them off. My husband and Peanut are going over his math. Right now, the sounds from my living room go something like this “Pi, R squared, circumference, diamter” blah, blah, blah. […]
