It was, quite literally the hottest day of the year, with temps topping out at a steamy 97. It was also the first day of the new school year for my sweet kiddos. I can’t quite wrap my brain around summer ‘ending’ and my babies entering second and fourth grades and yet it seems to be happening, ready or not. The kids, on the other hand, are thrilled. The first day of school was an overwhelming success and both are pretty sure this will be the best year yet.
