This month, I have to say I'm pretty pleased with the amount of reading I accomplished, considering I started late.  I probably started really reading again around the middle of the month and really got a lot done.  So without further ado..

Back to School Recap

Now that meet-the-teacher nights are over, we just have our daily routines to worry about, and the kids are now getting used to going back to school and haven't been fighting it as much as they were last year.
