Math camp for 1/2 price on-line 5 weeks

I bought Math Nerds for a five week boot camp math tutorial for SAT/ACT prep for Qatar and one for Zeke also.  I think this will be a fun way to learn what is needed.  Check it out here.

Art deal for 3 month subscription

I just bought today's LivingSocial deal for Kelly Kits, and thought you may be interested in it too!
The deal is only available for 155 more hours, so scoop it up soon!  It is usually 9.99 a month so this is a fun deal to see of it is something your kids might enjoy.  Gunnar loved this stuff when he was younger...never had the time or the money for the rest of sad.

I used to order things like this when Gunnar was young and loved them.  So I will try again and see how the youngest two like it...we are a bit art impaired.    Check it out.

Funny conversation

Gunnar spends lots of time with his friends this summer and that means spending time with Jay and staying at his house.  Zeke was even hanging out there with his friend Bets there at the same time over the 4th..  Betsy is Jay's younger sister.  Well here it goes.

Jay's dad, Jeff, commented that it was a normal thing to see Gunnar coming down the stairs in the morning.  But  he said, " that if Zeke ever comes down the stairs in the morning...there will be problems"  I think I will have a problem with that also.

Posting comments

Rant here.....I hate commenting on any blog that requires me to put in some stupid code or letter or whatever.  I hate that and that is why I am not commenting on anyone's blog.  Let anyone comment and just moderate the comments.  I cannot tell what those stupid codes are and I hate HATE HATE them.  I will not comment if I have to go through this stupid add on.  Sorry I start a comment and then quit when I have to put this thing in.....

OK that is what I wanted to say.  HATE HATE HATE HATE this!!!

I went out with the missionaries yesterday

 I went with the missionaries to visit a family down the street.  They welcomed us in and then told us how busy(preparing a birthday party for their 1 year old...a very important birthday-once a child makes it to one their chance of growing up sky rockets.) they were and only had time for a prayer.  The man of the house asked me to pray.  I prayed for the family and the visitors coming to the birthday party and for the spirit.  When I was finished the mother told me what a great job I did with the prayer.  I have never been complimented on my prayers and well now that I think about it maybe that should happen more often.  It was a nice way to end a busy day.
