The Duff House...My Kitchen Makeover
I was reading some money saving tips from a blog I like, moneysavingmom.com and found a recommendation for a website called zennioptical.com that sells $8.00 glasses. Me curiosity peaked, I went right to it and found tons of cute looking frames starting at $8.00. And not just a few at that price....we're talking dozens of uber-cheap frames.
Achievement tests, science fairs, portfolios-OH MY! Yes, it's that time of year again and I have to confess, I'm very stressed out. Now, my friends will tell you that I'm normally a fairly laid back kinda girl. But not this year. Right now I have 4 children finishing school work (hopefully), 2 children playing baseball, 4 children needing a lot of help preparing for their co-op science/geography fair in a couple weeks, and 2 portfolios to compile in a somewhat orderly fashion. And did I mention that we have houseguests arriving off and on thoughout the next 6 weeks? I actually lie in bed each night unable to stop the wheels spinning and go to sleep.
Many of you know that our family belongs to a homeschool co-op. This is a group of moms and kids that meets every Monday throughout the school year and we moms take turns teaching different subjects and electives. This year we started a Kids Kouncil for the older elementary students. These kids meet regularly and plan service projects and activities for the group to participate in. Their first event was this past Monday when we all celebrated Chinese New Year and Valentine's Day. The whole day was filled with one fun activity after the other. And the best part was that the kids did everything except prepare the food. They did a wonderful job.
