Where to Put Library Books?

We have two big baskets in the living room. One for our books and one for library books. And if you ever lost a book you know how expensive that can be. Since we check out 20-30 books at a time, we have to have a system.

That being said, they just weren't getting read as often sitting in that basket.

So I dumped them on the couch. Now they all get read.

Today we came home from the library and everyone just ran to the couch to read. Well the oldest read, the others looked at pictures.

Ahhhh, I love homeschooling.................

And if you would like to know my take on preschool here it is......

I didn't push reading to early on my oldest, in fact I could of let him go longer, but I wanted to show some progress for family. I am taking reading real slow for #2 who is almost five. Teach Your Child To Read In 100 Easy Lessons worked for us, although we split the book up and make it into 150 lessons........

Not One but Three

I saw a lady driving down the road with not one, not two but three garbage bags on her roof. Yes she was talking on her cell phone (oops almost wrote self phone- hahahah).

And if you would like a little joy in your moment of scanning here is a nice song.

We don't watch TV around here much

So guess what an old Pampers wipe container is pretending to be?

A television set for the stuffed animals to watch..........

And then there was a knock down screaming match because the Denise the Menace had taken it away to play with.

Butterfly Cage with Caterpillars-$10!!

This is a great deal for those wanting to hatch some butterflies!

This is a really good deal, $20 worth of product for $10! Insect Lore cages are great! We borrowed one last year and were quite happy with it.

I paid $14 bucks for just caterpillars last year. Shipping is $5.99.

Its an awesome Groupon deal!

The benefit of your 4 year old leaving the bathroom sink running and it flooding into the basement?

Your floor has never looked cleaner.
