I am a proud mommy to two wonderful, healthy kids...Jake who is 7 and Jaise who is 2. I have been a sahm since Jake was born and wouldn't change anything for world, although, it is by far the hardest job I have EVER had!!! I am constantly looking for a GREAT Deal and hope to share my knowledge and tips with you, so that you can also benefit.
The first week of school has come to a close. We have survived and are starting to get our first cold. Yes, I say "we" because once my son brings it home, we will all get it!!!! Jake goes to a very small public school. It reminds me of "Hoosiers" and yes, it really is in the middle of a corn field!! We are both used to small schools, however. I attended a school where we had a graduating class of 48!!!! My husband graduated the next year with about 70 or so. I only have experience with the elementary school and so far there have been two teachers for each grade. Jake is a great student and he is lucky that things come fairly easy to him. He can be quite the little stinker at home, but I guess when he is at school he just wants to "please" his teacher so much that he does what she asks...........the FIRST time!!!!! His 1st grade teacher decided to move to 2nd grade so she took her entire class with her. I am a little concerned with him becoming too comfortable with her and starting to act up, but we will see.......it could be a long year!!!!
Below are a few examples of photos that I have taken over the years. I can take any photo you have and turn it to black and white and leave a certain item in color. Contact me for pricing information if you are interested. If you live close enough, I can do a photo shoot for you with all of your photos on a cd for YOU to develop!!!
I always start thinking about Christmas in August. I found this cute idea for great gifts or to add the final touch to a great gift. If you have smaller kids, they can help. You can use any type of paper pattern but I am going to use pictures of my kids. The holidays always get busy so why not do it now and free up some time later?
