back to school giveaway hopIt’s hard for me to believe the kids are going back to school already! What happened to summer?

My heart tells me summer just started, but every store tells me different. The back to school supplies are out everywhere, along with fall decorations! If you look around a little, I’m sure you can find Christmas decorations too.

The expense in getting children ready for school seems to grow bigger with each passing year.  To provide a little help in that area, my giveaway in the Oh, The places you’ll go, Giveaway Hop, is a Visa gift card worth $50.00.

Enter here for a chance to win the Visa gift card and then check out each blog listed below.  There are an incredible 95 blogs participating in this giveaway hop organized by The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island! Thank you to both of them!

I plan to transfer and finish my SW degree in the future. Anyway, I’m excited, but I am also extremely nervous about starting my minor!
