Let me just start off by saying that my daughter is enjoying middle school. She feels like it has changed her life. How that happened, I am not sure. She has been better about going to bed at night. She has learned some organization and has gotten hang of passing classes. Now, if I could get the same enthusiasm for her to turn in her work on time, that would be excellent. Our school has a no homework policy. They would rather see the kids work during class where the teacher can help at that moment. Any work not completed during class becomes homework to turn in the next day. We have a live grade reporting website that we can access. Every time I see something marked as “missing,” I get worried. I have told her to just ask questions anyway and make sure to write down when any work is due.

It was cuter than I thought it’d be and she actually let it stay this way for a whole week. That’s a lot for my minimal little girl. Of course, I had to document it. Creating this page was quite fun.

To create this look, I used the following digital products:
