Spring Break 2017- Kiawah Island, South Carolina Part 1 of 3

Week in Review- April 1st- April 6th, 2017

Hello, and welcome back to the blog!!!  Because it IS Spring, and I still have snowmen up in my house, I decided that the house needed to be tweaked and switched into Spring mode.  I am NOT a decorator, but I’m really good at going on Pinterest and copying someone else’s idea!  Goals for the […]

Week in Review- Spring Break 2016

Spring break is always strange when you have multiple children in different schools.  Our college son was on break the week before Easter, while the other 2 at home had vacation the week after Easter.  While college boy was home, we didn’t see him much- he was still keeping college kid hours- go to bed […]
