Welcome to my adventure. This blog started out focused on parenting and school but now that Katie's nearly baked, it's way more about me these days. My experiences, more likely my point of view and good times to share.
Welcome! I'm glad to have you aboard.

Middle School is Almost Over - We Made It Through the Wilderness

First Day of Middle School
I'm so lucky. I have a fairly uncomplicated kid. 

Now that middle school is finally coming to an end, I realized what we really went through in the last three years. For anyone just starting out: hang in there - what comes out on the other end is totally worth it.

From Home School Back to Public School

When Katie started sixth grade, fresh out of home school, she didn't really have any friends. She bravely sat through first lunch week after week, alone. After awhile it did get to her. She admitted it was hard. Eventually, she finally met a friend and while it wasn't perfect, it was good. Her friend was smart and shared interests and finally there was someone for Katie to hang with at lunch.

Fast-forward to the spring semester of eighth grade and Katie is now on fire. That one friend got her through the winter of this year and then finally, like a curtain raised, all the girls who I would say aren't the "popular ones"; the girls that are more introverted finally found each other.
