Back to School Basics

Having a math teacher husband is nice for many reasons. Number one: he does math so I don’t have to (he tries to make me solve whatever problem we’re talking about first, but when I fail he doesn’t say much). Number two: he gets summers off, which means lots of time to do lots of stuff! When Grant gets summers off, it means I get summers off too (to a certain extent; I still have my business and transcriptions, but I also get to travel and play!).

I can’t believe those blessed two and a half months have already come to a close. Much of our summer break was spent fixing up the house – which, thank goodness, we are finally moved into. We wanted to get the bulk of the big stuff done before school started up again – finishing the basement, scraping ceilings, painting, and new floors – so now we’ve just got some minor things to finish up, and we can do all of those things while living in it.

I’ll be sad to no longer have my husband around all day, helping with the house repairs and whatnot, but reality had to come sooner or later. Happy first week back to school, honey!

Here are some fantastic products on Etsy to get you back in the mood for school, whether you’re a student, parent, teacher, or teacher’s wife. And remember, back-to-school also means it’s almost FALL! And who could possibly be sad about that??
