(PS - I'm not so sure I'm very organized, but I think having that many students has forced me to get a little better! Aaaannnnd, I'm glad I'm not the only young lady who is the last of the family out of the house!)

    @The K. Family - thank you! Glad you enjoyed it!

    @Paige - thank you! One day I looked at all of my favorite things and saw they were all turquoise, so I deduced that my favorite color is turquoise :)
