I don’t know about you but it’s been a long, hot summer in the Flynn household with three kids running around like banshees. I love the little monsters, but boy do they keep me running! 🙂 They’re all excited for the first day of school—the soon-to-be sixth grader already has her first-day outfit picked out—and we recently made the traditional run to Target to buy all of the school supplies.
