Thirsty Thursday: Week 7

I haven’t posted but once this week so far. The main reason being I am in the middle of an emotional roller coaster that is getting Precious signed up for Kindergarten. The official registration was yesterday and I spent about half an hour in the bathroom when we got back trying to convince myself not to cry. It is a bitter sweet thing watching your kids grow up.

Anywhoo… Here is a list of the blogs for this weeks Thirsty Thursday roundup:
