Wow! Everything looks great. I'm kids are excited to get started this year. It's been so hot we couldn't go outside so they have actually been a little bored. LOL! Perfect time to start school I say.
Have a great day.

Hi! I found you through the Not Back-to-School blog hop.

It looks like you really have everything in order! :)

I can't wait for next year, when my daughter will be ready for Five in a Row. My son was never very excited about it but I think it will really click. Will you be posting lots about your FiaR adventures?

Have a great year!

Great job!

I love this blog hop. It really gives me great ideas and refreshes my thinking -- even though I've been homeschooling for over 10 years. So, thank you!

Have a great MOnday.
