Saturday Morning – Tivo and Coffee

I love Saturday mornings!  As a teacher the weeks are very busy.  If you have children (we have four, one left in the house in fourth grade) it is even busier.  Play practice, church, cheer and tumbling and lots of homework is the norm for our daughter and our week.  But on Saturday, the pressures […]
