First College Semester Is In The Books

Thursday was my last final for my first semester at college and I can't even begin to describe the huge sigh of relief I gave as I walked out of the classroom.

When Life (and College) Takes Over

Hello, my name is Toni. You may remember me as the blogger who was here posting almost every day (sometimes multiple times a day), but you may have noticed I have seemed to have gone missing.

An Open Letter From A Volunteer Cheer Coach

Dear Parents, I consider it an honor that you trust me with your child (or children). I love to teach them; I treat them like I treat my child.

In just a few days we are going to be sending our three children back to the world of middle and high school which means a lot of last-minute scrambling.

Keep Connected With A College Care Package

It's a big world they head off to when they go to college, why not send them with a care package that can help them adjust to life on their own!

Back to school is hard enough for any parent, but especially those who are sending their babies to college. Let me grab a box or bucket of tissues.
