Is it just me or did this school year fly by? I don’t know if it is because the world knows I am not ready for Tween Girl to go to middle school or if having twins did it. Either way, the kids will be home for the summer next week! Other than a trip to Adventureland, our summer will consist of one giant Staycation. Well, I will be heading to Chicago for BlogHer13 but I will be alone and focused on work.
