This week marked the last of the first days of school for the year! My daughter started Preschool and I started teaching my music classes for the semester.

Can’t remember.) and are actually being used as party of my pantry organization, which I would love to show you, if my pantry were organized (Soon!!!). So it was easy to grab them and a piece of chalk to write the grade they are starting this year, and grab a few photos on the way out the door on the first day.
