Schools Out For Summer...

Schools out forever!! (cue cheesy rock song)

I have a love hate relationship with summer. Some days all hate very rarely all love.
Noah's last day of school was tons of fun.....not sure if that was really different from any other day there was a lot of what seemed like play days of no actual academics at all.
Once that bell rang we were out of there. I forgot to even say goodbye to his teacher. Not that she cared She was probably as happy as we were to be DONE.

So now it's onto FUN!! And a little work in between trying to make up for months of the non learning so he can be ready for first grade!!

We are working on crossing off our summer list!!

Last Day

Every year when school comes to an end I get sad......sad because it means my kids are getting older, I have to entertain them, and the routine!

Sawyer has loved preschool this year and is really going to miss his teachers this year!

Mrs. Shultz and Mrs. Sims despite the look on his face he really does LOVE both of these teachers and is going to miss them.

I love this preschool and I am so glad that we are going to be going there for many many years!!!

Open House

We had a great time at Noah's very first Open House!! He had so much fun showing us all over his classrooom and all the things he has had fun doing this year. Noah has had a rough start this year. I am sad that he truly hates school. I am hoping over the summer we can find some things that can make it a bit more fun for him. He has such a LONG school career ahead and I really want him to do well and enjoy it.

Here he is with his teacher.......he keeps doing this fake smile in EVERY picture. Grrr drives me crazy!!

By far the highlight was the slide show the teacher had put together. He loved seeing himself and his friends.

Before Open house we met Jeff and In-N-Out for dinner. I realized I had dressed the boys all in monkey shirts so I had to get a picture. I love Paul Frank tee's on the boys!!


Some day they will give me a decent picture!

Saving Dinero

Week 2 of coupons another success!
Here is my haul. Not pictured another bottle of excedrin, three bottles soft scrub and 2 things of tooth paste and I still have $5 to spend on my next trip. I love CVS!

So here is the totals.....all of this would have cost me 128.70. I paid 53!
That's about a 60% savings wohoo!!

1 88 count buggies box diapers
1 23 count pampers diapers
1 excedrin regular 125 count
1 excedrin back and body 24 count
1 excedrin tension headache 20 count
1 excedrin migraine 24 count
3 renuzit air fresheners
4 crest pro health tooth paste
1 38 yds glide pro health floss
1 24 hr allergy relief
1 schick razor
1 schick razor cartridge
3 soft scrub cleaner sprays with bleach

Somethings I have learned....
Plan plan plan. If the store is out of something and they don't offer rain checks don't go on the fly and get something else it will mess up the plan!
Dont go when you will be rushed.
I Try avoid taking the kids and that helps a ton!
save receipts and double and triple check and don't be afraid to call out the cashier!!

Happy saving!!

Eight is GREAT!

They called him crazy when they started out
Said seventeen's too young to know what
Loves about
They've been together 58 years now
That's crazy

He brought home sixty seven bucks a week
He bought a little two bedroom house on maple street
Where she blessed him with six more mouths to feed
Yeah that's crazy

Ask him how he did it he'll say pull up a seat
It will only take a minute to tell you everything
Be your best friend, tell the truth and overuse I love you.

Go to work do your best don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin' knees get lazy
And love like crazy

They called him crazy when he quit his job
Said them home computers will never take off
He sold his one man shop to Microsoft they paid
Like crazy

Just ask him how he made it
He'll tell you faith and sweat
And the heart of a faithful woman,
Who never let him forget

Be your best friend,
Tell the truth and overuse I love you
Go to work do your best and don't out smart your common sense
Never let your prayin' knees get lazy
And love like crazy

Always treat your woman like a lady
Never get too old to call her baby
Never let your prayin' knees get lazy
And love like crazy

They called him crazy when they started out
They've been together 58 years now
Ain't that crazy?

-Love Like Crazy by Lee Brice

Happy Anniversary Jeff! These past eight years have by far exceeded my expectations! Thanks for being my very best friend, putting my needs first and loving me like crazy. You have and continue to make me the happiest girl in the world!!

3 Months

Dear Rhys,

STOP growing!! You are getting way to big way to fast! You are the best baby EVER. Really you make mommy want to have ten babies! (then I see your brothers and snap back to reality!).

You are getting so plump and chubby I want slather your thighs with butter and eat them.

Thank you for being so patient with me and your brothers especially with all the sickness around lately.

You are such a trooper. Yours and my favorite place is having you on my chest in the ergo. I love how you cuddle in and fall asleep every time. And I love to smell your sweet skin.

Remember stop growing!!

Burnt out!

After the last few months of go go go we have hit a wall big time. The boys have had this nasty cold flu thing for the last two weeks. At first it was nice to just lay low but now we are going a little stir crazy. Which my explain my new clipping. Jeff and I have been watching the new show on TLC about extreme coupons it is crazy. Jeff gave me a challenge and told me he would buy me an iPad if I saved us that much on groceries.

Obviously I have a long long way to go given an iPad is expensive! But Im up for the challenge. So this week will be my first shopping trip wish me luck!!
