|I heart these bloggers!|
In "real life" I am a teacher. Having summers off is a beautiful thing.
I go to 472 baseball games, read 964 books, dig in the dirt daily, and I never shower before noon. It is an adventure.

Go big or go home, right?
I tell my kiddos each morning "Go learn somethin'!" Well, it's time for me to go learn somethin'.
