Well, it's that time of year again. School is getting ready to start, the big yellow busses are getting ready to start clogging up the highways again. We went to the kids' open house at the schools tonight and it discouraged me so much.

Charlie and I have had very heavy hearts the last few weeks regarding us homeschooling Brookelyn. We have spent much time in prayer about this and have decided that that is what God is telling us that we need to do with her. So, in my not wanting to disobey my Heavenly Father, that is what we are going to do. Granted, she is only 1 and there are still years left before she should actually begin school...but doesn't learning begin from birth? So anyhow, due to the situation with the other 3 children, living part-time with their mom we're not sure how everything is supposed to work here.

We are feeling the need to homeschool them as well but don't know how she would take even the suggestion of this. We are praying earnestly about this situation and would welcome your prayers as well.

I whole-heartedly believe that God is calling me to homeschool my children because of a conversation I had with some friends a few weeks back saying there was "NO WAY" I could ever do that! God apparently has other plans for us and as inadequet as I feel about holding my child's education in my hands I know that if God is calling us to do this then He will supply me with the knowledge that I need to educate my child the way that He sees fit.

Please continue to keep our family in your prayers as we embark on this journey!!! This is going to take ALOT of discipline on my part as I am NOT organized at all and know that I will need to be way more organized than I am for this. I like to plan things so maybe that will help some? Anyway, I will let you go for now, just wanted you to know that I covet your prayers and am pretty excited to see what God has in store for our family!

You can go here and learn all about being a product tester for items moms use most for their kids. They even have occasional items for moms!!! It's totally free to sign up and while I can't promise you will get stuff all the time, it's worth it to sign up and get an occasional free product for the kids or yourself.

Kmart Double Days

Well, Kmart is doing another Double event. This month it is going to be August 16-22 at participating stores. I have seen some lists of participating stores floating around on Hot Coupon World so you might check there if you don't know if your store will participate.

I wasn't sure and couldn't find where ours was so I just emailed corporate and once again our store is NOT participating. They apparently don't feel there is enough interest for double coupon events in this area....HA HA....they are mistaken!

I don't know about any of you but I am getting frustrated reading all my blogs and everyone else gets to do Kmart Doubles and we rarely get to get in on the action. SO...I am urging all of you if you haven't already to email Kmart corporate and let them know of your interest in our local store participating in the Doubles events! Thanks ladies Happy Shopping
