This and That

So I have been neglectful of a little thing that I need to do...a friend of mine posted this on her blog and I am participating, so I am FINALLY getting this up on mine...

On one of my favorite and most inspirational blogs to read, Lanita has posted a fun activity that is going around the blogs called Pay It Forward. How it works is that the first 3 people who sign up for it are sent a handmade item from me. After signing up, they post about Pay It Forward on their own blogs and do the same, making and sending a handmade item to 3 people who sign up. And so it continues on with each person.Pay It Forwards can be any handmade item or craft that you choose to send. The items do not have to be large, just something that you have made. According to the rules, you have 365 days to make & send the PIFs but most send them out much sooner. If you are interested in signing up, send an email or post a comment saying so. Once I contact you to let you know that you are one of the first 3 to sign up, you can then go ahead and post on your own blog about Pay It Forward. It sounds like a lot of fun and I am looking forward to doing this.Anyone interested in signing up? I can't wait to begin making and sending these items out.
So my oldest had his week of paging and he ended up really enjoying it...and the temptation has been to say, "I told you so!!!!" I am so glad that he had a fabulous time...he met a couple of new friends...I hope they keep in touch...and he went outside of his comfort zone and got a view of life that he would not have chosen...so now, don't tell him this, but I have a new great idea to "force" him into...For those of you who are reading this and you really do not KNOW us...please know that I am not unkind towards my children, I just know their tendancies, strengths and weaknesses...anyway, I think Joshua will love this too
So the window for this is much smaller than the window for paging...so I am not sure if we can ARRANGE to have a friend do this with him, but as I have two years yet, I will be on the look out...maybe you will tuck this in the back of your minds as well...and if you are not from the same state that I am from, just enter your state in before adding "boys state"...in a google search...they have them ALL OVER
So this week is a week of catching up...since Josh was gone last week, we got some things organized and got rid of ALOT of things just taking up room...so this week, everyone is back to work...we have a couple of appointments that take us out of our regular schedule and the children are excited that co-op starts on Friday...
Oh, I forgot to mention...Joshua was accepted as an intern with The Learning Parent (Rick and Marilyn Boyer), so he is eagerly awaiting his assignment...I have also changed his schooling around to add a heavier dose of computers....not just dinking around, but really getting to know different programs and use it more than he does now...
Well, I need to get going...I will post soon!
