cheap gift alert


I just bought 5 of these Learning ATMs for only $30.95 shipped – that’s how much just one normally costs! They are on sale at Library & Educational Services through Thursday, August 6th. It is a wholesale company, but you can purchase through them if you are with a church, day care provider, missionary, public or private school, homeschool or reseller.

Be sure to sign up for their newsletter. They have several blowout sales every   year.

My Christmas shopping has officially begun! Woohoo!!

Outside my window… a beautiful sunny day

From the learning rooms… we are test-driving two math programs – ALEKS & Quarter Mile Math – for upcoming TOS Crew Reviews

I am thankful for… God’s clear direction in our school plans for the upcoming year

From the kitchen… I’m going to attempt to find the perfect whole wheat bread recipe

I am creating… new chore charts – our old ones are not a great fit with the new house

I am going… to the health food store to stock up on yummy ingredients

I am reading… Titus/ God’s Beautiful Design for Women:Living out Titus 2:5; Laying Down the Rails

I am hoping… Fall is early this year!!

I am hearing… Sweetpea trying to wake up

Around the house… I’m tackling the garage before it tackles me

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… lots of planning – daily schedules, curriculum, reviews & blog posts

Here is picture thought I am sharing…


My friend Donna took this pic of Sweetpea. We went to a hippie wedding vow renewal & I made her dress out of a vintage pillowcase that I got at the thrift store for 99 cents. LOL
