Terrible Fall at The Playground

Today was the only warm sunny day of the week so we parents and kids were out at every park in the area in full force. To avoid the muddy grounds, we chose one that is entirely gated in – one gate  is the only way in or out and you cannot climb over the […]

Bring It!

Today I have chosen to do the seemingly impossible. Although chosen is a strong word when really I was placed between a rock and a hard place due to my own poor planning and procrastination.  I put off scheduling to take a necessary assessment test to begin a degree program.  Unfortunately for me, the deadline […]
