I had fun posting these on Instagram yesterday for my Corner View "Day in the Life" assignment of the week!  Hope all is going well in your corner of the world. The homemade chocolate sour cream cake with cream cheese frosting has become the staple birthday cake in our house. I wish I could send you a piece!

    1. It's not exactly as it seems; it's really a small break followed a bit later by our lunch break. Both of those facilities are a two minute walk from the school. If there are no lines at the PO I can be back in the school within 10 minutes. It's a different kind of life.
