Seasons Spin Around the Calendar

Seasons Spin Around the Calendar

Seasons spin around the calendar…each with a unique purpose. My grammar school teachers spun the calendar round…month by month, rather than, season by season. Every month hosted a new theme.

Cinderella

Cinderella

We don’t always get “happily ever after.” Life is not a Disney movie. We don’t have Fairy Godmothers who sing “bippity boppity boo” and make all our dreams come true.
