Over the last few weeks I have struggled with diiaaalllluuuupppp internet! Here are some updates:
1. I have successfulle completed 3 weeks at my new job! I have gotten to know most of the kids. I admit I was not prepared for some of the struggles the kids face. One boy in particular is in the care of his aunt because his mother died and his father is not around~he is such a sweet kid and I wonder what he will become.
There are also kids that are incredibly disrespectful! Mrs. Butterworth would have smacked my mouth, but these kids don't have that discipline at home!

2. We have had three sleepovers in the last two weeks. Little Girl had someone over the last two weekends and Future Trooper had someone over last Saturday. Big Daddy said we should coin the name "eat overs" because they eat everything in sight at sleepovers.

3. We took our bunch plus an extra boy to the birthplace of Abe Lincoln. Little Girl is writing a report about Abe and it seemed like a good resource. It was the Sunday before the inaguration and I was overwhelmed with the thought
of one of our finest presidents coming from such humble roots as well as MLK day approaching and the inauguration of our first african american president as well as one of the youngest. It made me wonder what I had actually accomplished in my years!

Everyone say YIPPEE for snow days! I hate snow but snow days ie, no work days, are a different thing entirely!

Hello there!

I found you through an old blog makeover giveaway entry. I noticed that you did not win. I am a custom blog designer, and I am offering a super sale on complete blog makeovers featuring the whole shebang (anything you want). If you sign up before the 20th of this month, it will only cost you a mere $25.50. If you get someone else to sign up, it will only cost you $20.

Please check out my portfolio at SubjectiveBeauty.com and feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my services or work at webmaster@subjectivebeauty.com.

I should also add, that you do not pay until you are 100% satisfied with your design. I rework designs as many times as needed to please the customer.

I'd love to design a special blog for you :o)

P.S. - I am not sure if you are aware, but your third column is aligned incorrectly. Your third column is at the bottom under your posts (main column). If nothing else, I can help you fix this.
