I recently made a very big life changing decision and decided to go back to school, I say big life changing because for our little family of three - this is a huge deal! As a single parent my days are busy and long. I'm in charge of everyone and everything which includes getting out the door on time, school drop off/pick up, work, errands, attending classes at the local college, therapy, extra curricular activities, cooking meals, laundry, dishes, and so on and on.

One of my go-to retailers is Amazon, it's my favorite place to shop but now thanks to Groupon - I can save even more on my Amazon purchases!

Going Back To School

It's that time of the year, back to school time! This August though, my children aren't the only ones returning to school, that's right - this mom is too! I've been playing with the thought in my mind for sometime now and I finally just took the plunge and decided it was now or never!

As a single, working parent, there aren't many hours available for free time, it will take some work (and lots of planning) to adjust to my new school, work and parent/life schedule but I know I can do it!

After viewing what degrees my local college offered, I chose Associate of Arts in Teaching for grades 4-8 and Early Childhood through grade 12 Special Education. This degree plan will take two years to complete and then I will transfer to a university to obtain my Bachelors degree.

How does your family enjoy time together? Between work, school, and my children's extra curricular activities - life can be busy and sometimes hectic! I started Friday family game nights a few months ago and it was the perfect way to gather everyone around for some quality time together!

Family game nights are a great tradition to start and are inexpensive, once we had our first game night together, my children looked forward to Friday nights every week! There is nothing better than a room filled with your children's laughter, spending time together with loved ones and having a Wonderfilled night thanks to OREO sandwhich cookies!
