I'm returning to blogging next week!

I have been super super busy lately doing some extra work for extra money so my blogging has really suffered :( But the good news is starting next weekend I will be back!
On another note T has started Kindergarten:

K-Bug went school shopping for the first time and is starting preschool tomorrow :(

She was in heaven with the tutu skirts and glittery leggings at Kohls and after picking out a outfit check out baby girls receipt

SO PROUD of her! She was very happy to hand over her coupons and get change back.

Where did time go? It seems like yesterday when they were tiny tots.....
