window blinds

Ever since we've been planning our big move to our new home, I have been looking all over for blinds. The guy who lived in our new house before didn't have any blinds, so I get to have fun buying new blinds for the windows. My favorite are the bamboo blinds and the roman blinds. I'm going to probably buy them at Terry's Fabrics because they have quality and affordable blinds that I'm looking for. If you're in the market for new blinds, check them out and see what you think. This is a paid post.

Time Flies

I can't believe it's already lunch time already. I have been blogging and working on the computer most of the morning and I don't know where the time went. Wow, does time fly. I really need to get something to eat and take a shower, because in a few hours I need to be ready for our closing on our new house.:)

Shoulder Ache

I woke up this morning with quite the shoulder ache. I"m not sure why it is so achy...I think it is from the way I slept or something. I hope that over the next couple of days it begins to feel better so that I can do all that I can to help Scott move our things to our new house. It's feeling much better tonight than it did this morning, so that's good.

Getting Excited

Wow, I can't believe that tomorrow is our closing for our new home!! It's crazy that time has gone by so quickly!! We're very excited to get in there and start moving our things. The sooner we move, the sooner we can get settled in and enjoy it. :)

My parents are coming up tonight, as we have a wedding to attend this weekend that is quite a ways away. It's about 4 hours from where we live...so they thought they'd come up tonight so we can leave early tomorrow morning for the wedding. It should be a good time, as we'll get to spend time with family and celebrate the marriage of two very special people.

Getting very excited to move

Well, it's a pretty exciting time for us...as we are moving into our new home in less than 4 days!! We were kind of bummed that the guy wanted to close in the middle of the week, but we understand that that's how it goes sometimes. We're just going to move things gradually and do what we can and finish that weekend. It's going to be a very busy week...but we're SO excited!

Xpander Communications

Do you have a small business that is in need of a quality phone system? Then you should check out hosted PBX small business VoIP phone systemss. They offer small businesses technology that is very user friendly and one that meets their needs. It's simple to use, reduces costs, and maintenance. The nice thing about this phone system is that you can use this phone for free between branches by using the 4-digit dialing system. I liked the fact that these branches can share the same phone system and make it easier for them to stay in contact when necessary. I highly recommend you check this site out if you're wanting to learn more about what this phone system can do for your small business. Believe me, the benefits are endless.

Baby Movements

It's been kind of a fun few weeks of pregnancy, as the baby has been very active!! He/she moves all the time throughout the day...especially at night and in the morning. It's to the point where Scott and I can see it through my shirts which is kind of fun. It's such a neat feeling...that's my favorite part of being pregnant so far.

Car Troubles

Wow, we had quite the scare last night with all the rain we got. Scott and I went to buy groceries after he got home from work and while we were shopping, it began raining very hard! We are fairly new to the town we're living in, and had NO idea that they have areas in town that gather inches and inches of water when it rains that hard. Well, it was raining so hard, making it difficult to drive, and we got stuck in one of these areas in town. It was up to the bottom of our vehicle almost and it causes our car to stall and die. Thankfully there are nice people around who were making phone calls for us, and helping us tow the car out of the deep water. We're also blessed to have Scott's uncle who lives near, so he was a big help as well. We had to leave the car in a nearby parking lot so it could air dry. Now we're praying that it runs and that there was no serious damage to the car.


Some of my favorite memories as a child are the family vacations that we took, especially those to Orlando Florida. It was just such a magical vacation, full of a lot of fun things to do. I know that I want to be sure to take my own family there some day to enjoy all of their theme parks and other things they have to offer. I'm sure there are many of you out there who would like to do the same. That's why I thought I'd share that Orlando Fun Tickets is a great place to go and find tickets for Disney World, Cheap Universal Studios Tickets, and so much more at discounted prices. Sound like something you'd be interested in learning more about? Then check it out and start planning your family vacation today.

Junk Mail

Do any of you have a problem with getting tons of junk mail in your e-mail??? I sure do and I hate it. It seems like if I go a day without checking my e-mail, I have tons and tons of junk in there. I don't like to just delete stuff, cuz sometimes the junk mail actually appears to be real mail. Grr...I wish there was a way to sift through it more easily.

Great Book

I recently came across a great press release about a new book, "The Secret Diary of Adrian Cat". This is a really great book about the life of a cat. Have you ever heard of it? If not, then you should know that it's about a cat named Adrian. His life just is kind of hectic lately, with his owners having a new baby, his friend in need of his help and being in love. This love of his isn't so lovely. She is trying to get him into a gang. He ends up realizing that this isn't true love, and that he's falling for an alley cat, named Gypsy. The press release is as follows:

“The Secret Diary of Adrian Cat” – a hilarious account of one-year in the life of Stuart and Linda Macfarlane’s cat has just been published by DNA Press.

SUMMARY: The secret lives and loves of cats are revealed in this adventure novel, entitled “The Secret Diary of Adrian Cat” that peeks into a year in the life of the mischievous feline Adrian Cat. Adrian is having trouble keeping his new year's resolutions (especially "I will not be condescending to my humans"), and he's also adjusting to the fact that his humans have a new baby, his best friend needs constant help, and he's in love for the first time—with the angelic-seeming Snowball. But Snowball turns out to be less than perfect and tries to lead Adrian into organized crime. She forces him to join the evil cat Killer’s gang. After numerous misadventures he realizes that he does not love the beautiful but power-crazed Snowball and really loves the scruffy yet tender alley cat named Gypsy. After Killer’s gang runs Gypsy out of town, Adrian is forced to make some strange friends, fight the evil Killer and travel a rough road in order to convince Gypsy of his love.

PRESS RELEASE BODY: The DNA Press team is happy to announce the publication of "The Secret Diary of Adrian Cat", by Stuart and Linda Macfarlane of Scotland.
“The Secret Diary of Adrian Cat” relates one year in the life of the extraordinary cat Adrian. At the start of the year Adrian makes his New Year Resolutions but soon finds that they are not easy to keep - especially the more testing ones like ‘I will not be condescending to my humans’ and ‘I will not maul the vet’.

The Adrian Cat book is modeled on “The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole - Aged 13 ½”, the book that made its author Sue Townsend the best-selling novelist of the 1980s. “I have always been a great fan of Sue Townsend and have read many of her books,” said Stuart Macfarlane. ‘The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole’ provided the inspiration to write our book in a diary format. I loved the idea of a cat keeping a secret diary of all his adventures, worries and aspirations. ‘The Secret Diary of Adrian Cat’ started out as a working title for the book but Adrian took on such a powerful character that when the book was complete we could not bear to change his name. We spent hours trying other names, but none were right – Adrian was Adrian and refused to be called anything else.”

Added Linda Macfarlane, “The book is about all the things Adrian could be getting up to; trying to become famous, looking for the love of his life, promoting peace between dogs, cats and mice, getting involved with an evil gang, saving the life of a fox, treasure hunting with a pirate parrot and, of course, looking after his human family.”

When Adrian spots a beautiful white Persian walking through his garden he immediately falls head over paws in love. Her name is Snowball and though she appears angelic she turns out to be a power-crazed feline who will do anything to get what she wants.
In an attempt to win Snowball’s heart, Adrian is forced to become a member of the Cosa Nostra gang - run by the evil cat, Killer. As a member of the gang he becomes involved in many mischievous activities such as housebreaking and raiding the fish shop. As Adrian becomes more influential Snowball unexpectedly announces that they are soon to marry.
When Adrian finds an injured fox Snowball refuses to help saying, ‘The only good fox is a dead fox. When it dies, bring me its tail - I need a new cushion’. By good fortune a cat ‘of no fixed abode’, Gypsy, offers to help and through her knowledge of herbal medicines and tender care the fox is saved.
Being jealous of the amount of time Adrian is spending with Gypsy, Snowball gets Killer to run her out of town. It is only then that Adrian realizes that it is not the beautiful Snowball but the rather scruffy Gypsy that he loves. After days of searching he finds Gypsy and eventually persuades her to marry him.
Of course much more than this is happening in Adrian’s complex life, for he has a human family to support and a best friend, Lucky, who constantly needs help and advice. This ensures that there is not a day without crises, adventure, and of course lots of food to eat and as much sleep as Adrian can cram in. But the appearance of a noisy new human kitten in Adrian’s family makes it difficult for him to sleep and when an outbreak of ‘Nappy-Rash’ makes the noise unbearable, Adrian has no choice but to move in with an elderly human, Old-Grey-Fur. However, he discovers that she sleeps even more than he does and he soon moves back with his humans. On a day to day basis Adrian has the training of his young humans, Brat and Brat-2, to attend to in addition to fighting for a spot on his favorite chair, and of course attempting to fulfill his resolutions to, ‘become the world’s most famous cat’, and to ‘promote world peace between cats, dogs and mice’.
Summing up the year Adrian exclaims, ‘I’ve fallen in love for the first time and fallen out of love for the first time. I’ve married the best girl in the world. I’ve added a new human to my family. I’ve made friends with a robin, a fox and a pirate parrot. I’ve been the enemy of an evil gang leader, best friends with him and then his enemy again. My one regret is that there just hasn’t been enough time for sleeping.’

It seems like I've been going and going all day long. With all this packing, cleaning and working on the computer...I feel like my day has just flown by. Sometimes there just isn't enough time in a day to get everything done. Hopefully the rest of this week will slow down just a bit, cuz there's just so much to get done.

If you are like me when it comes to web development and other things involving computers and technology, you know how nice it is when there is someone there to help with that long list of questions that you have. While I was recently browsing the web, I came across a great site, discussweb, that makes it easy for people to find the answers they're looking for. They have experts who take part in discussions on topics like discussions on web development, software Programming, quality assurance, web hosting, and so much more!! It's not only a site that is limited to those who are in the United States, but available to anyone across the world who is needing answers to some of these more difficult questions concerning technology. When I was on there, I enjoyed reading some of the questions that others had. It's funny, because most of my questions were ones that others have already asked. It's really a neat site, that gives you quality answers and discussion for a number of different topics. One thing I really liked about this site was how user friendly it was. I don't like going into sites that aren't laid out nicely and that make it difficult to find the answers your looking for. This site is not like that at all. It's really easy to find everything you're looking for. Check them out today and see what you think. I think you'll really find it useful for the questions you may have about technology.

What a day

What a day it's been. I have so much to get done, but I can't seem to make myself do any of it except for posting. Blogging to make money is so addicting because you just see the amount of money you're making go up and up and up!! I know that I need to take a break from it soon though, because I still have some packing and cleaning to do.

Credit Cards

Getting a credit card is often pretty easy to do, but what some people don't understand is that not all credit cards are right for every person. There are so many credit cards out there these days, each one offering something a little bit different to it's user. That's why it's important to compare credit cards before making a decision to use one that randomly comes in the mail with a pre-approval letter. CreditCardSearchEngine.com is a great place to do just that. They have been around for a long time and make it very easy for all kinds of people to search for the best credit card out there through comparison. Here you will find everything! You'll find a Low Rate Credit Card and reward cards, as well as cards for those who have bad to average credit ratings. If you're looking for a credit card that's right for you, check this site out today.

Class Tonight

Tonight we have our second childbirth preparation class to go to. The last one was pretty interesting, but it got a little bit long. I hope this one moves along a little more quickly, as 2 hours is a really long time to sit. We also are hoping that it doesn't last the whole time, because there's still so much to do in preparation for our move next week. I guess we'll just have to see how it goes, and we'll get done what we can.

The countdown begins

Now the countdown to our move really begins! Only 1 week left until we close and are able to move into our new house!! We are just so excited to own our very own home and be able to do with it what we like. I'm not a big fan of packing, but I do love to decorate and get things organized in a new place. So, next week should be pretty fun for me!:)


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to get into the candy vending machine business? I know I have. Especially when I'm at events and see them different places. If you're like me and have a curiosity about this business, then you should check out Multivend like I did. I was excited to learn about this particular company, because they have been around since 1990 and are one of the leading bulk candy vending machine manufacturers in the United States! There are almost 9000 people who have become a part of multivend already, and I would like to be the next. It sounds like a fun business to get into, and the benefits are excellent!! If you are someone who would like to set your own hours and work when you like...as well as make up to an 80% profit, then you should definitely check out Multivend.


I'm really happy that the weather has been pretty nice out lately, but that also means that Scott has been in the field more which isn't always fun for me because that means he gets home later. They have a few breaks over the summer where it's not so busy, but then it picks up again around bug season. Oh well, I guess that's how the job goes.

Freeze It Gel

Lately I've been finding that I have lots of aches and pains, as packing up our things to move in a week is pretty exhausting. But the main ache that has been bothering me the most is the joint in my right elbow. I'm not exactly sure what I did to it, but the pain that it causes is bad enough to where it's difficult to straighten my arm completely. This has been going on for about two weeks now, and it wasn't feeling much better with each day that passed. When I received my sample of Freeze It gel in the mail, I thought it would be the perfect solution to try on this elbow that was giving me so much pain. Only using a small amount seemed to do the trick. It helped relieve the pain in my arm so that packing up the boxes was much easier and more enjoyable. In using this product for the first time, I wasn't sure what to expect. I was very pleased to find that not only did the Freeze It not smell as strongly as some of those other products on the market, but it also was not greasy. I wasn't worried about my shirt touching my arm where the Freeze It was applied, because it's greaseless. These are the main reasons why I would choose this product over any others that I've used or seen in the past. Another huge benefit to using Freeze It, is that it's easy on the pocket book. It's very cheap, $9.99 for a tube or roll on, and there is even free shipping on orders of 30 dollars or more! Now that's what I call a deal! Check this product out for yourself and relieve some of those aches and pains that intrude on your daily life....you won't be sorry!

Fun Weekend Ahead

I am really looking forward to the weekend ahead. My parents are coming up and Scott and I are going to drive up to a wedding for the weekend with them. It will be nice to get away from the stress of packing and getting ready to move for a few days. It is also going to be fun, because my brother and his wife, who live in Texas, are going to be up at this wedding as well. It will be nice to meet up with them, as it is has been quite some time since we saw them last. It should be a great time.

I don't know about you, but ever since I've been pregnant, I see how important it is to have insurance. Between all the tests and doctor's appointments, the money really adds up. If you're pregnant and are needing maternity health insurance, you know that this can be quite difficult to attain. Not with MaternityCard though. MaternityCard is something that can help you make decisions regarding the costs of having a baby. They can actually put together a benefits package to suit your specific needs. Please check them out today and if you're in need of good Insurance for Pregnant Women. This is a paid post.


There's been so much going on...I just can't wait until life slows down a little bit. Buying a house, expecting a baby and dealing with everything that goes along with two has just made life very busy lately. It seems like we're either at doctor's appointments, birthing classes, at the realtors, or the bank these days. I definitely think that once this house stuff is settled, life will be much less stressful. I can't wait for that!


Are you interested in technology? If so, then you may be interested in a site that I recently came across. Discussweb.com is a site focused on technology. They have a growing technology community and forum on this site and it's only going to get better! Right now they only have a forum for technology experts, but soon their site will advance and offer much more. I advise anyone that enjoys and is interested in technology, or maybe even Programming, to check this site out today. This is a paid post.


Sometimes I get so sad when i watch the news, because it seems like there is so many bad things that happen each day to innocent people and animals. No matter what day it is, it seems like I hear more and more of murder cases, burglaries, pet abuse, etc and it just makes me sick. I never used to remember hearing so much of this, and now you can't turn on the TV without hearing it. It just saddens me.


Have you ever heard of Vendstar before? I hadn't until recently, but was quite intrigued with what they're all about. They are a company that was established in 1990. They are actually the one of the leading bulk candy vending machine manufacturers in the US. I thought that was pretty amazing. Basically, this company gives people the opportunity to own their own vending machine business. It's really a great business to get into, if you're looking to make some great money. It can provide up to an 80% profit! I don't know about you, but that's something I like to hear! If you're interesting in getting into a business such as vendstar, you can learn more at their site today.


We really feel like we got a lot accomplished this weekend as far as packing goes. I can't believe how much we got done actually. It seems like there is very little to pack up, which is good since we move in just over a week! I definitely don't think this moving process will be as stressful or hectic as the last time we moved....as we're only moving across town this time.

Online Coupons

Have you ever heard of coupon codes before? They are basically online coupons that can be used at a number of your favorite stores. I like to use coupon codes to help me save money at the stores I shop at most, like Target for example. This has been a very popular store for me to shop at these days...as we are stocking up on some of the things that we will need when the baby arrives. How convenient it has been to go online and shop, and save money besides!! There is a great site, Keep Cash, that makes many online coupons available to you ever day. In fact, they are even updated ever day to ensure that you are always getting the best and latest deals. How great is that?!

I'm sure that there are many of you out there who like to save money while shopping as well. If so, you should definitely check out this site the next time that you're going to be shopping online. It's really easy and SO convenient!! Take a look at all the stores and coupons they have to offer and get started today. This is a paid post.

More Packing

Today I woke up feeling very rested and ready to get some packing done. I have been trying to do little by little so that the job doesn't become to overwhelming or physically draining...but there is still much more that needs to be done...specifically in the kitchen. It's nice that we're only moving across town...as packing doesn't need to be done so carefully. When we moved last winter from another state I had to make sure all the boxes were close and everything was securely in place. This time is much easier...which makes packing less of a hassle. Hopefully between Scott and I we can get much of it done today.

AV Expert launch

A great site has recently been released. I think it's so great that I wanted to share it with all of my readers. The name of the site is AV Expert. Their purpose is to basically find the right AV kit for its users. They really offer a lot of neat features, including a section of reader reviews, like LCD TV reviews. They're even going to be adding a new section on product comparison which is always nice when you're looking for something and don't have time to search and search. This site will make it easy and convenient for you. If you're interested in learning more about AV Expert, check their site out today. This is a paid post.

11 more days

Scott and I are getting really excited to move. Only 11 more days until we close! Can you believe it!? Some people may think we're a little crazy getting so excited over buying our own home...but it's our first home and we can't wait! It will be so great to put money into something and be able to do with it what we want.

Capella University

Capella University has new ways of communicating with students on their website. Podcasts are something I wasn't familiar with, before familiarizing myself with Capella University. This is an online university, accredited and serving more than 19000 students. They frequently put podcasts on their website, which are basically conversations/interviews with students, faculty, and staff about their personal experiences with capella university and much more. They're not very long, but have a lot to offer someone listening...especially those who are considering going to Capella University. The most recent Inside Online Education Podcast, featured Carla Chladek, a master's degree student there. If you'd like to learn more about what Chladek had to say about her work at the Pentagon, check out their site today.

Goldfish Crackers

Lately all I've been wanting to eat are Goldfish crackers. I go through spurts for foods that I crave...and lately this is what it's been. Well, that and chocolate of course.:) The goldfish crackers are just so good and so easy to snack on throughout the day as I work. I have been buying the bigger box of these crackers and they last for quite some time.

Much Better

My eye is doing SOOO much better and I'm really happy about that. The redness and itchyness of pink eye is NO fun!! I've continued to use my prescription through the 7 days that the doctor told me to, so hopefully it will not be coming back again. I am going to save the extra ointment in case it does..the doctor said that would be a good idea in case the other eye gets it. Hopefully we'll have clear eyes from here on out though.

Capella University

capella university is an accredited online university with many degree programs for students to choose from. They currently have over 19000 students from all over the world, and continue to grow. Their website has these things called podcasts. Basically these are a way for students, staff and potential students to listen to a conversation from current students, faculty and staff. It gives you a better understanding of their own personal experiences there at Capella University. Carla Chladek was in the most recent podcast, talking of her work at the Pentagon. Chladek is one of Capella's many Master's Degree students. She is studying education at the moment. If you're interested in checking out these podcasts, please visit this website today. They're very interesting and informative.

What's for lunch?

What to eat for lunch? This is a question I ask myself often. It's hard when Scott isn't here for lunch, because then I have to think of something to make myself. I'm just not sure what to have. I'll have to go through our fridge and see if we have any good leftovers. If we don't, I'll have to check out the cupboards I guess.:)

Busy Day

Today is one of those days when I have so much to do and am just not getting enough time in a day to do it all. I just sat here for two hours figuring out our bills and all that fun stuff. Now I get to do some packing! Doesn't that sound like fun?? I try to take frequent breaks, but it doesn't always happen.

Looking for a bed

Scott and I are in the process of looking for a new bed. We don't want to spend a fortune, but want something descent and nice enough for company to sleep on. I think we'll be shopping around for a bed soon...but if anyone knows of a good bed at a descent price let me know.:)

Baby Moving

The baby sure has been moving around a lot. Scott really likes it because now he's really being able to see and feel the baby move more. It's so much fun...we're really happy that October is almost here (well three months away, but it will go fast). I'm sure many mom's, like myself, just love feeling their baby move.

Capella University

Ever heard of Capella University before? They are an accredited online university offering many different degree programs to students who attend there. You can even get your distance learning phd They actually have even added some new programs to their list. One being a new Bachelor of Science in Public Safety Program. There are also 8 new graduate and undergraduate specializations in different fields, including: psychology, education, information technology, business, and criminal justice.

For more information about the school and how to contact them, visit their site today.

More blogging

I really should be getting ready, but whenever I get on the computer these days, I find myself blogging. In less than an hour I need to leave to go meet with our insurance agent about all this house stuff. I suppose within the next 10 minutes or so I should start getting ready...as I have quite the drive to get there.

More Packing

Last night I got so much packing done!! I feel like I really got a lot accomplished, as I got both bathrooms pretty much packed up, as well as our spare room and the baby room. The main room that's left is our kitchen...which I've been putting off because it's going to be such a big job. I suppose I may start on that today sometime if I get the chance.

Cell Phones

Cell phones are the greatest! It seems that now a days they really have become quite the necessity. Scott and I don't even have a home phone anymore because our cell phones work just as well. I'm really happy that it works out that way because it saves us money each month too. It's so easy to use a cell phone to contact people no matter where you are. Almost everyone these days has a cell phone which is nice.


Are you involved in a business and looking for a capital loan? If so, then you should definitely check out Advance Restaurant Finance.

Exciting Times

Things are going so well for us lately. We're so excited that our baby will be here in October, and now we have a house that we're moving into at the end of the month too. :) I just can't wait!! It's fun when there's so many exciting things going on in our life all at once.


There are many of us who do things online to try and get neat prizes and even pay to do different types online auctions. I for one, am a huge fan of an auction site and sweepstake that goes about things with a twist. This site is Bid4Prizes, where you can get all kinds of cool free gifts!!

I had actually reviewed this site and browsed through it many times before deciding to take part in their great offers. If you've never tried out Bid4Prizes, you definitely should. When I say the game has a twist, I mean the lowest unique bid wins the prize, not the highest bid. That's much different than any other auction site I've ever heard of before. It's really easy to play, and fun too! It doesn't cost you anything either, which I really like. You put your bid in, but even if you win the prize, you don't have to pay anything...not even shipping!:) How cool is that?!

Now, you may be asking yourself, "well what kind of prizes can I get?". There are so many neat prizes, and such a variety! That's another thing I love about this site! You can get things like Apple iphones, HDTV's, and even a cash prize. Check them out today and see what you think.

More Weddings

There are so many weddings this summer, I can't believe it. It seems like each week we get another wedding invitation in the mail. It's hard to make it to them all with Scott's schedule and us getting ready to move in a month or so, but I still love going to them when we can. It's just a very popular summer for weddings I guess.

Innovative Tutor

As an educator, I am a huge advocate of meeting the academic needs of my students and my own children. There are many children out there who struggle in different subject areas, and it's always nice when there's a quality program out there willing to give them the one on one tutoring that they need. I definitely am going to look into Score Learning Centers if my children ever need help to make academic progress...as they offer a terrific innovative tutoring program where children can work with an innovative tutor. If you haven't, please check out Score today and see how they can help your children. This is a paid post.

Relaxing Day

Today was so nice. My mom was here all day and we just hung out and had a great time. She and my dad came up for the 4th and then dad had to work, so my mom stayed until he got off work. We were able to discuss many things about the new house and all that that entails. It was just such a nice and relaxing day!!

Reading Tutors

Are you a parent who has a child who struggles with reading? As a teacher I know that reading can be a very difficult subject for many students, but you should know that there is a great program out there that wants to help. I know that if my kids are ever struggling with a specific subject, Score Learning Centers is who I would turn to. They offer an innovative tutoring environment where math tutors, reading tutors, etc. are there to help your children. Learn more on their site today and see if this is what you've been looking for!

The Fourth of July

Tomorrow should be a really fun day for Scott and I, and my parents. We are going to get to spend the holiday with Scott's side of the family on the lake and enjoy the nice weather!! We also get to have a nice picnic, where everyone brings some really yummy food!! I'm really looking forward to all the festivities tomorrow...especially the food! :)

Math Tutors

As a teacher, and a parent, I know how important it is for children to get the academic help they need, especially when it's specific to the areas that they may be struggling with. My children will be school age before I know it and I want them to benefit from the different math tutors, reading tutors, etc. that are out there to help. A very good program that I've come across is Score Learning Center. This is a program focused on helping children ages 4-14 make academic progress in a fun and interactive learning environment. This is definitely some that I'm going to look into and I suggest you do as well. This is a paid post.

We got it!!

I am just thrilled with this whole house hunting process!! We have been praying about it, and in search for a different home for quite some time now, and we finally found it!! Everything has gone so smoothly...we couldn't have asked for a better experience!! We close on July 27th, so that gives me only a few short weeks to pack and get ready to move!! I'm SOOO excited!
