End of School Year Gifts for Teachers

I was in a panic yesterday.  After buying a single gift for the Bear’s primary 1st grade teacher over the weekend it suddenly dawned on me that we had nothing for the teacher’s assistant.  It was 5:30pm.  And school is over in 3 days.  And I hadn’t a clue about […]

The Bear begins 1st Grade in 11 days. The ’10-’11 school supply list sits by the front door, waiting for a trip to our local parent/teacher store. This morning, I did a drive-by past the uniform store to check their hours. Then I thought, wait a sec, the Bear hasn’t […]

The Best Summer School Workbook

…yeah, I know.  The summer is 1/2-way through and I’m only now suggesting (well, sorta demanding) that you buy a particular workbook for your kid.  What can I say, the 100 degree temps are slowin’ me down.  Better late than never?
