It was our second time hosting Thanksgiving, and we seem to be hitting our stride. We were so prepared that our kitchen sink decided to clog Wednesday night just to keep things interesting (it was fixed Friday).

A few months into Owen’s school adventures, we finally received our first “What in the World” newsletter. WITW’s are are daily (in theory) recaps of what happened in class.
