it's been almost a week since I've posted.
summer session started at uncg
and my schedule changed from free time
to monday-thursday classes
along with trying to keep the kids on their
schedule- not easy to do but
it gets done and I'm not complaining
I just wanted to let you know I haven't forgotten about you!
and I've really missed blogging.
so I'm back.
here is a collection of pictures
from the six days missed.

the chaos of the school.

I am weird about that.
