My son from a young age, has shown such a interest in words and numbers. Always trying to read things.. studying my keyboard letters. I was sooo thrilled to come across the program "Your Baby Can Read". At first I was a sceptic.. let me tell you! lol But after receiving the entire reading packet, and having my kids use the DVDs, books, and flashcards for 3 weeks now.. I am utterly sold on this foundational way of teaching your children to really read, and comprehend what they read.

Lead your kids on a fun, faith-filled Easter egg hunt this year--one that teaches them about Jesus' death and resurrection! Each egg carton is filled with a dozen colorful plastic eggs. Pop them open and find miniature symbols of the Easter story inside. An easy-to-understand booklet in both English and Spanish features Bible stories explaining the significance of each object. Recommended for ages 5 and up.
I never really know which direction to go with Easter Eggs. And I love this idea of incorporating the true meaning of Easter into the eggs. So my kids still come away with the essence of Easter not just the Bunny holding a basket of eggs. I think it's really about instilling values in our children, even in the small things.
CBD has the Resurrection Eggs for 33% off right now at $9.99.
A little about me...
It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)
In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.
I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.
There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.
So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
