As we're only 1 month in, I'm still in 'back-to-school' mode and frankly, I've started running out of ideas for snack.  In an attempt to keep me and my dear Junior Kindergartner interested in snack time, I bought this fun 2-compartment container by Sistema and have been loading her up on two-part snacks:  yogurt and (nut free) granola, cheese and crackers, apples and more

Reading, one of our favorite pass times in the Little Miss Kate household. I am so happy that A.C. loves to sit and read book after book, always bringing “another one” over to the couch to read.  I am hoping as he grows he continues to develop a passion for reading on his own, as there is nothing better than relaxing with good book after a stressful day.It is sad to know that
