Dare to Share #485

It is Friday night, and you know what that means.. 
It is time to Dare to Share! 

I just finished my first week back to school.  It was both wonderful and exhausting. Everyone was excited to be back with the kids and our school family again.  We did have a few first week bumps though.  Our buses have been arriving very late as ,they try to figure out the routes with a shortage of drivers.  The first day of school I stayed an entire hour later than normal just trying to help get all the kiddos safely on the buses. While I was not being paid for that extra hour, I know what it is like to be standing at the bus stop waiting for your kids to arrive home way after they are supposed to be home. Hopefully next week will be even easier as we get used to our new routines again  

I did have the chance to write a post earlier this week.  Just as you walk in the front door of the Dollar Tree, they had a display of gorgeous fall dishes that would be so pretty on your Thanksgiving table. You don't actually need a special reason to use them.  They are very affordable so you can use these dishes every day if you would like.  You can see more about them on my post Amazing Dinnerware for Thanksgiving and Your Fall Parties.

I stopped by another Dollar Tree store tonight and found a several more really exciting things.  I share the new products I find over on Instagram.  I also share videos and reels/tutorials if you would like to follow along.  

Well it is looking to be that time to get the party started.  Link up and HAVE FUN!

  1. So wonderful that you are committed to serving the kids and parents in your school!

    1. Thank you Michele. I remember what it was like when I was in their shoes as a nervous parent when my kids started at a new school.

  2. Interesting. The school I teach at, we contracted to stay 40 minutes after school ends. Since they moved back the time school gets out, we are not leaving until 4:40pm. Also, we have had tons of bus issues this year. I have to release one of my kids five minutes before the bell rings because his driver will cuss out the admin if he isn't there at 4:00 and one second. I mean we have 1000 kids going out one main entrance.

    Anyway, have a wonderful school year and I hope that you have a wonderful week.

    1. I am a building sub, and do not have a teachers contract. While I work exclusively at one school and they consider me staff, I am technically employed by the subbing company. I only get paid for a certain number of hours per day by the subbing company. Since I have been working at this school for so long, and my kids went there as well, I don't mind occasionally helping out when needed even if I am no longer on the clock. Hopefully this upcoming week, a lot of the glitches will be worked out.

  3. Thank you so much for hosting this link-up - I hope you enjoy the recipes I have shared this week.


I would love to hear from you!
