12/16/14 school ending and exercising…

written 6/5/13 – Beth finished school today. She is always sad on the last day of school. She misses her friends. The kids put a movie in tonight, a week night, as celebration for school being out. We took pictures of Beth since it was her last day of school. She made a lot of faces in most of the pictures and stood still in a few of them.
Beth has a friend who is already posting a status on Facebook as totally board. They have only been out of school for a few hours.
Maggie has one more week of school after this week. Then we can officially start summer.
We forgot to do our “90 day crunch challenge”. It looks like this will take a lot longer that 90 days.


12/15/14 exercising, last day of school…

written 6/4/13 – We forgot to exercise tonight. The chart needs to be moved, maybe to the fridge.
Today is Beth’s last day of school. On the kids first and last day of school, we take the kids pictures. We can take her picture tonight. Some day I am going to get a frame and put all of their first and last day pictures in it.

Beth likes being with her friends at school and will miss them over the summer.


12/10/14 computer programs and homework…

written 6/29/08 – We finally have William’s computer hooked up in his room. The computer program C++ is on the computer…we think it is on the computer correctly. He tried to run a program from his class, but the program was written so that it had to go to other, previously written pieces of program…and those other programs aren’t there because the class is over. We need to have William write a program from his C++ book, that doesn’t need any other lines of programming except for what he puts in now. Then we can see if it is set up.
Maggie and Beth have decided to start their summer homework. They were sitting on the couch with their books deciding where to start last week. In all of the past years, I have kept the books and given one page of homework each day. The page has homework on both sides. I have them do half of one side each day. I only want the homework to help them to get back into school easier, not to have them do homework all day. We don’t finish the whole book in the summer, but that doesn’t bother me.


8/25/14 summer vacation…

written 2/8/12 – I like going on vacation with my kids. There was one summer when the kids were young, we couldn’t afford to go any where. What we did was to get a map of our town. We found our street on it, where their grade school was, where the church was and we looked at which streets we drove down to get to each place. We also looked at which way was north and south. Then we looked at where some of the playgrounds were in town. We found playgrounds in parks and at schools. Each Saturday we would get out the map and figure out which parks we had already been to and where we should go to next. We went to different parks all summer. We kept the map in a spot where the kids could get to it. Sometimes on Saturday morning they would get the map out and look over it. They would try to remember which parks we had gone to and decide where we should go to next. One would say “We have been to that one already, don’t you remember, it had all of the swings.” or” it had the best slide.” In the end we were taking containers of water with us. I thought about taking packed lunches and making a full day out of the trip, but we never knew if there would be a bathroom at each play area, so I never promised a full day. By the time that it got cold out we had other activities to do on Saturdays. We had seen a lot of play areas, but there were a lot of ones that we didn’t have time to get to. When we were out and driving around town in the summer and we spotted a playground, we would try to remember if we had already gone to that one or if we should try to go to it next. There was usually a lot of debate. If the playground only had a slide and a few swings then it never made the list of possible choices. This was the best, cheapest and longest summer vacation that we ever went on.

blog income
I have been looking for a way to bring extra cash into my family without getting a second job. I just want enough extra income to be able to pay the bills but still be able to have time to enjoy my kids. I tried a lot of web sites that offered envelope stuffing, they were all dead ends. Then I tried blogging. I figured that if enough people visited my blog then I could add advertisements and get paid. If I monetized my blog I could take the profit to help my family. I have found Blogsvertise. With them I can have advertisements on my blog, or have guest posts or have banner ads. I am still new to this.
