You have done a fabulous job designing your blog!  I wish I could do that too!  I am loving summer too, but I feel it slipping away too quickly.  I am your newest Bloglovin follower, thanks to Farley's rule of 3.   Enjoy your boys and the rest of your summer.

What a great idea!  Thank you for thinking of me and inviting me to the group.  I know we will all have some great things to share with each other.  I have a niece with autism and I always have students with special needs in my class, so this will be a great resource for me!

My "baby" took her senior pics today.  I was fine until she put the cap and gown on, then the tears started flowing.
