Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all having a great week!  This morning I sent my girls off for their first day of school, which meant the first day of kindergarten for my little one.  While there is a tiny part of me that is sad my baby is not really a baby anymore, I have to admit that I am looking forward to getting back into more of a regular routine now that school has begun!   Has school started for you already?  How do you get back into the school-year groove?  I’d love to see your tips!

    Thank you Ruth for featuring my Husband Project post! I hope your girls have a great first day of school – school here started the first week of August (crazy!). Thankfully, my boys are still too little for school so I get to enjoy their craziness just a little while longer! 🙂 I hope you have a great weekend!
