Just so you know, the kids all made it to school with very little trauma!  (I was even able to hold off tears, if you can believe that!)  It is strangely quiet at my house today, and I am hoping for some major productivity!  I even plan on baking some cookies made for the kids!  Hope you are all having a great week!  I’m looking forward to the weekend, ready for anything!!  🙂
