The School Advocate

The carefree days of summer are officially over in these parts.  Yesterday was the first day of school for my children.  And it wasn’t just the basic first-day-meet-your-teacher.  It was their first day of school in California.  We moved 2100 miles across the country at the beginning of the summer, so we were a looooong […]

The Guessing Game

Last week, I hinted that I had a good reason for not saying more about what was keeping me away from the blog.  I believe the exact words were, “a very good, very exciting reason, which I should be able to share with all of you in approximately 11.5 days.  With pictures!” Today’s the day! […]
