It's Been A Great Day!

I love days like this, everything has gone smoothly, the children have gotten along and I have kept the house picked up. We only have about 5 weeks until school starts back instead of wishing the time away I have decided to make the most of it and enjoy every minute with my sons. My dear Mother reminded a few minutes ago that all too soon they will be grown and that I would be wishing for them to this age again, she is a very wise woman!

They wanted a boat for the pool today but couldn't decide how to pay for it, I offered to buy it in lieu of an allowance they quickly agreed and I actually saved about $5 this week!

I'm loving this blog hop, I've found several new blogs to read and follow and I love a good blog almost as much as I do a good book. I hope that you are having a great day!

That was a great trade-allowance for the boat!!! I will have to remember things like that when Taegan is older. Thanks for wishing me a Happy Birthday-it is so fun to meet new people!!!

I love the idea of a trade off! Great job! I'm over from the blog hop, and you're right, it is alot of fun!

Hey! I am visiting from Jenna's Journey!

The boat was a fantastic trade-off for the allowance! I've tried that trade-off thing with my son, but it usually doesn't work...lol!!

It's nice to "meet" you!
