First Day of School

Ethan and Audrey started school today. Ethan in 3rd grade and Audrey in First. Audrey was the first to rise this morning (6am), she was so excited. Ethan wouldn't admit it, but I could tell he was happy to return too. I was hoping summer could have lasted a bit longer but happy to get back to a keeping the house tidy again. I don't think much was dusted over the past several weeks. Here's to a great school year!!!!

Here's my List:

A gift from my hubby. "BRUISES" is my favorite song on
this CD, I honestly only really like about 1/2 the CD.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this CD. For the most part
every song is good. Favorite song is "Dangerous and Sweet".

This was bought for the kids to listen to but I love it too.
Lots of Great songs. Can't go wrong with Jack Johnson.

Audrey's CD. She wants to listen to it all the time but
we limit it, since it's not not for everyone, especially my hubby.

Hubby's. I like it too. Classic.

LOVE IT! Favorite song is "BE OK" I have her
newest CD on order. I can't wait!

Share your list and favorite songs too. I'm always looking for some new music to listen to.

What a GREAT way to start the day!

I found this over at 31 EXPERIMENT, you can print a copy to remind yourself to think of others first (not always an easy task, a daily reminder I thought was a good thing). I printed an 8x10 and hung it on my fridge.
