Making The Junior High Transition

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

Chalk collection...

Last night I went to a parent information meeting for middle school for my oldest daughter.  Geez, how time flies.  And yes, I know most people don’t call it junior high anymore.  It’s middle school, but I expect to be corrected a lot by all my girls.  Some old habits are just a little tough to change.

Parenting For Endurance And Coping – Part 1

Monday, March 7th, 2011

Not planning a return trip.
