5 More Days!

Well, we have 5 more days left til we leave on a plane to Florida! Kyra wakes up every morning and informs me of the countdown! The kids and I are so excited! It will be their first time….and my 2nd on a plane!

We plan on staying with my Mom(Nana) for the whole month of July. We’ll be staying at the beach for several days too, visitng Sea World, going to our old parks that the kids loved. along with visiting the different springs in the area. Not to mention 2 Family Get-2-gethers! We’ve missed everyone so much! I hope we get to see as many family as possible!

I sent our stuff already! It is actually cheaper, not to mention easier, to mail it than take on the plane. They’re charging $25 per luggage now!

The Old Schoolhouse Facebook Fan Page!

I just recently started blogging early this year and even more recently started on Facebook, but I was hooked from the beginning. I get to let everyone know what is on my mind, what me and my family is doing and tell people about things that are important to me.

I signed up for The Old Schoolhouse Facebook Fan Page about 2 months ago, shortly after I signed on. Ever since then I have received great info on products and answers to questions that I have.(whether I was the one doing the asking or not) They give out great freebies to whomever is a fan. It’s worth it for new homeschoolers, like me, and for veterans to be involved.

Right now they are having this AWESOME special on their TOS subscription to where you receive 19 FREE gifts for new subscribers or two year renewals. The free items are alone, worth way more than the subscription. You get  free e-books, gift cards to some of your favorite curriculum sites and many other gifts that you would love. Too many to mention! BUT…it is only for the first 5,000 people!(good news-you can check to see if you can get in…so no fear!)

The Drive-In!

On Saturday, Wyatt’s 6th Birthday, we went to a drive-in that I had just heard about. It was the kids first drive-in experience and Brian and I hadn’t gone to one since we were teenagers. The closest one is in Fayetteville, about a 20-30 minute drive. The movies that were playing were UP! and Hannah Montana. We brought our own concessions, sleeping bags, blankets and pillows for the back of the truck. The kids got comfortable in the back while Brian and I sat on chairs in front. We had a blast and it didn’t end until after midnight! Wyatt was the only one who ended up falling asleep, halfway through the second movie. LOL!

Skiafest 2009

Sunday, 6/6/09 the kids and I went to Skiafest. For those of you who haven’t heard of this event….you’re missing out!  The christian store, Skia, puts on a FREE annual music fest where several performers come and perform. This year was our first year attending the concert and it was a blast for the whole family.

We went to see Britt Nicole sing and some skaters/bikers perform their stunts. Britt Nicole was on first. And WOW! She is very talented. During her performance she stated that she felt led by the Lord to sing. She also led some devotions and prayers during her concert.  My 11yo daughter has her CD and we all know her music and listen to it.  After the concert she came out and spoke with her fans, signed autographs and took pictures. She was very down to earth and listened to my daughter. She autographed the CD and the Skiafest T-shirt. We had pictures taken with her, and her and the band.
