Hi Ho... off to school we go...

Last week Blake started Kindergarten. He was so excited as was I. Joe and I took him to school that day to help him find his line and to feel comfortable. His teacher let the parents come in while she read a story and then we said our good-bye's. I won't lie, I teared up as I left and I couldn't stop feeling anxious all day. That afternoon Kalli and I walked up to the bus stop to meet him and he was so excited from his first day. He now rides the bus in the morning and afternoon, only because his friend rides it too and she's also a kindergartner. It works out well and he still loves school.
Lining up. So excited! Blake was chosen to be put in an inclusion class as a peer mentor. This means he only has 15 kids in his class which means Blake gets much more attention. I was talking to a friend of mine and her daughter is in a class of 28! That's insane for kindergarten. We love his teacher and her aide and have already seen a great improvement in Blake's behavior and learning. It's nice to have one in school now, but now we have to wait 3 years till Kalli can go!

All Hail Emperor Kang

Where would Roswell be if it weren't for the famous UFO Incident of 1947. That's right, almost 65 years later, the town sure thrives on its short-lived fame and glory and the hundreds of hopeless tourist that come to visit. The town has really been taken over by aliens, such as this one, who guards the local KFC.

Simply and utterly fantastic! Broke my heart multiple times while laughing all the while. Poignant, important and real. If you've read the book, you'll be very happy with the movie, it's as good as the book (which is hard as the book is one of the best books I've ever read!). If you haven't read this book, you'll still love it! Little Mo Mabley steals the scene every time she's on the screen. I fell even more in love with the characters after seeing them in the movie. I just wanted to give Cecilia a big hug and cry with her. And how great is her husband? Seriously, go see this movie! Now!

Ready to make your home/office smell amazing?

I recently signed up to sell Scentsy. I was introduced to the product last year and quickly fell in love. I thought the best way to contain my obsession is by selling it myself. I started off slow with one warmer and a couple scents and my collection has grown rapidly. If you're interested, go to the website and browse around. It's a wonderful product and one that I love wholeheartedly. You can order online anytime. If you want to have a party we can do that too! Even if you live out of town we can still work out a party. Enjoy and tell me what you think!
During the month of August everything in the catalogue is 10% off. Stock up!
