Fashion Inspiration For A Successful Year
I will freely admit that fashion is just not my thing. I really never paid much attention to it when I was in school. Shopping for clothes with boys is a whole lot easier, I think. Since they did not have uniforms, they pretty much went from jogging pants to jeans to khaki shorts by the time they were done with school. So I am glad there are other parents out there with more fashion knowledge.

Gift Ideas To Give To Teachers
Did you know that most teachers have to pay for supplies for their classrooms out of their own pockets? So this a great time to help them out by sending things they really need. Tissues, hand sanitizer, and gift cards to office supply stores.
And, of course, a few fun things don’t hurt either. Here are some great ideas for classroom & teacher gifts.
