I don't know how exactly, but I fixed what was wrong with my homepage.  Glad it's back to normal.  I still have to figure out how to fix the margins, but right now I have some children to take care of.

Be back later.....

As you can see I have erased (accidentally) a lot of my blog's homepage.  I only tried to edit margins but ended up deleting important stuff I've added over the past year.  I don't have the "Design" button on my dashboard anymore.  It's been replaced with something called "Template".  So now I can't figure out how to reapply the things I lost. My blog looks ugly and it makes me sad.

Can anyone help? Bueller?

Back To School

School has started.  Mary started middle school.  She had a huge smile on Monday morning.  It seems like just yesterday we were sending Billy off to that school and here we are a whole year later.

The bus stop
That was at 7:25am.
Next up:  Tommy and Ann

This was 8:45am

And they're off....

Now it's just me and this guy:

What a gift!

Preschool for him starts in a couple of weeks. *sniff*

Have your lovies started school yet?
