Balancing Chaos

#40 Back to School!

August 23, 2018

Gretchen and Kelley are headed back to school, and sharing how they feel about that and what they do to prepare.

Fact Check: We had eight snow days and five early release or delayed start days, so Kelley was actually more right than Gretchen.

(Near the end, during favorite things, you hear a big jet taking off, even though we were recording in her basement! It's not a plane at your house.)
