An Early Start

Last year the girls and I made and sold Christmas cards so they could earn a little spending money.  This year, we will be starting early because the orders are already coming in!  Ou youngest daughter wants to buy a bicycle with her earnings and the older two want to buy a Wii with the Wii Fit accessories.  I will get pics posted shortly of some creations.  The pricing will be $1.50 per card or $10 for 10 cards.  We can also do an all-occasion package for the $10 price.  Shipping will be an additional fee to be determined.

1st Day of School

This is one of my favorite times of year. I love getting ready for the first day of school. The crisp paper, freshly sharpened pencils, squeaky clean tool boxes, and shine notebooks inspire me. Every year is a fresh start offering a multitude of opportunities. This year is especially exciting starting a new curriculum in a new place with all three of my children. We will include the typical reading and writing, math, science, and history, but we are adding in lots of fun extras. We will also make time for Bible, sewing, cooking, music, Spanish, art, and card-making.

What are your plans for the upcoming school year?
