Wow, life is busy! I'm finding out what it means to have a child in school. Not as much free time for me like I thought it would be. Mornings and afternoons are quickly filled w/volunteer opportunities at the school or little programs the kids are putting on...it's endless, but it's fun!

Since it's the little bug's school life that seems to keep me busy, I thought I'd share a few pics of what it is I've been doing there. (In no random order...I'm feeling too lazy for formatting tonight, sorry.)

Turkey Treats: made these for bug's class. Not my idea completely, I saw a similar cookie but in addition to what is pictured below it had an Oreo and several more candy corns. I modified for a slightly less sugary snack.

Door decorating: I was given a theme and a weekend to design the door. Each snowflake will be embellished w/a holiday sentiment from the class.

Thanksgiving family project: Disguise the turkey so nobody eats him for Thanksgiving dinner. Ours turned into a sheep. He was pretty heavy...the teacher had to use extra masking tape to keep him hanging on the wall. :)

Thanksgiving skit: my little pilgrim man...the class sang two songs and then acted out a little story. Adorable!

School fundraiser: Boosterthon Fun Run. I was skeptical because I didn't like the % the school keeps but it raised enough funds to be the only fundraiser for the year!

Isn't it amazing how much busier you are once your kids start school?!?! Love the pics!
