Yesterday school started, and for whatever reason, I had this illusion that the paperwork I would have to sign/ approve/complete would decrease once you hit a certain school level... WHO WAS I KIDDING ?? Myself, apparently! 

It was great to hear all the first day of school stories... like from my son whose in 10th grade... "Mom, if everything I needed to know, I learned in Kindergarten, why do you have to attend 12 grades afterwords?"...   Hes the literal one in the family.    ... I learned from my daughter, whose in 8th now, that there is a "spray zone" for the teacher that apparently spits when he talks, and he can cover two lab tables long and wide.. This is interesting stuff right? ... I love it! {wink wink}.
Just Add Ink

I made it through all the paperwork. I signed my name atleast 20 times, on documents that from what I glanced over, gives that school permission to do everything - well almost everything, including random drug testing..for each of the children. Do not forget about all the privacy acts that they have now... What a wake up call that was!!!... Reality at its best!  I do not recall such forms when I was in school, but hey, its just a good thing they are past the Room mother stage, because at the rate I was going, I may have signed up for something like 72 cupcakes every other month! {wink wink}.

In the meantime, I didn't get to enter my card into the Just Add Ink challenge, but I still love it {I just hate my lighting!}. I love the Strength and Hope stamp set and I paired it with Sweetly Said. Its clean and simple - exactly what I needed after all that paperwork!

I hope that the rest of the school year days are as entertaining as the first! I love the stories that teens have, and I know that within a flash - there will be no more... WOW! ...

Have a great day!

Hug the ones you love!

Thank you for stopping by!
