There isn't anything really exciting going on around here, but I did want to tell those of you with young school age kids about a website my friend told me about. It is starfall.com and it is an awesome website to help them learn. There are things for Jax and Brooks on there and they love it. Check it out!

close up after:
My other project was staining the back porch with a semi transparent concrete stain.
I hung some curtains and did some furniture rearranging too. I know he is going to be so shocked. The boys and I are so ready for him to get home. He has been gone way too long, but the good news is the long sales meeting is done until next year.
Also, today was my first parent teacher conference. It went great. She said his test shows him way above where they want them to be and he is one of her best students. I am glad that I got a good report, you never know. I have to start working more with Brooks. He is learning but really is not very interested. He just wants to watch hunting videos, act out the hunting videos, hunt the neighbor children, or play hunting on the wii. Hmmm, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Anyway, it has been a busy week. I have told myself that I am going to exercise everyday until I lose 10 pounds. I started Monday and so far so good. I feel so great when I am exercising a lot. Brooks is really getting into it to. He rides his bike while I run. Tomorrow Jax has to go with us. We will see how that goes. It usually causes a fight because they fight over who is in front.
I have also been shopping the last 2 days. The deals out there are amazing right now. I bought 6 swimsuits today for 50.00. Seriously. I am not kidding. Dillards had their swimsuits marked way down. Like 9.99 and 4.99 then I got an extra 40% off of that. I bought a lot of clothes for the boys for next year too. After school I took the boys to Academy. Jax has been wanting another pair of tennis shoes. He wears the same pair to school every day. They had several styles on sale for 50% off. We bought 3 different sizes. He is set for quite a while.
