Back 2 School!
In 417-land, school is back in session! My Facebook feed is plumb full of mommas and daddies posting first day of school pictures and it is so precious! Big ‘ol smiles and lots of excitement are in those pictures because it’s going to be a great year! The First Day of School is like a holiday! The excitement of a new school year will soon wear off, but as any good teacher knows: education starts in the home! Gather up the kids and make a trip to Branson where the education can continue!
