Library Day and a Book Hunt

Everyone has a happy place. Mine is home improvement stores. <gives me the warm fuzzies just thinking about it> Auggie's is the library. When we ask him if he wants to go bye-bye, he yells "Yes! Audric go to library!" Asked him what he wants to be when he grows up... "A library." His sister…

Waterfalling

This weekend hubby had an unexpected day off. The generators at his work had to be replaced. In order to do that, the electricity had to be turned off. He works in a call center... work wasn't going to happen. So we decided to go waterfalling with the kids. I do not view waterfalling to…

Starting Summer (School)

Keeping Up With the S.M.

If you are thinking that this is some sort of 50 shades of whatever, you are wrong. S.M. stands for social media and I suck at keeping up with my accounts. I only have 1 personal account and that's on Facebook. My business accounts though... Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Snapchat (I don't use that…

I'M SO EXCITED THAT IT'S SUMMER!!! I like being warm. I was born in August. Summer is my season. Even when I complain about being too hot. I love it. So, there should be no shock that I put together my own summer bucket list. Like the spring one, I'll post my progress as I…

Hi-Yah!

I haven't forgotten about Auggie's travel through our library's 100 Books to Read Before Kindergarten list. It has been a while since I've posted, but I knew that summer was coming and with summer comes the summer reading program and the summer lunch program. We are going to be spending a lot of time at…
