Freebies, Great Deals & Swag Bucks

I've been having fun with my savings blog!  I can't believe that I'm not working so that I can assign myself work to do :)  I've been trying to only work until 9:30 in order to have the rest of the day with Sarah.

I really wanted to get at least 100 followers on the blog but it's not really working out well that way.  Facebook is good though.  We are climbing up to 900 followers so I guess that's better than to figure out how to make the blog side work!

It has been working out pretty well for the most part.  I wish I could say that I'm enthusiastic every day to fill it in but mostly that's true.  It gets to be work every once in awhile but as long as it's more fun than work we're good!

Unemployment is busy!

I've decided that this summer is about spending the time bonding with my family.  It seems so much time is devoted to work and just doing the day to day that we forget how to spend time with each other.   I'm having so much fun hanging out with the kidlet.  She's so fun!  I wish I hadn't lost so many summers.  Did I say my husband is loving it too :)

Sarah and I are starting to work out at the YMCA and going to the pool afterward.  It's all good.....

We have produce...from the garden!

Hey look!  We have daikon and radishes from our garden!  Sarah planted these so she was VERY excited to start pulling.  I actually had never had daikon and I kindof like them.  They are just a little spicier than our radishes :)  Now I just have to figure out what to do with all of them....Sarah planted a LOT!

Picnicing with the "Muppy"

 Why did we start calling Flash, "Muppy"?  It actually started as Mr. Puppy...and as he got older, we started to call him Muppy for short.  I'm not sure if he knows that what his name is for sure since we use it interchangeably. 

We decided to take Muppy to the park with us for a picnic.  Sarah is out of school as of this week and we are officially starting our summer.    As you can see Flash is not much of a walker.  He's already taking a rest and we haven't even made it around the park here!

I wish I could have caught a shot of the ducks.  Flash was very interested in seeing if he could catch one or chase one...not sure :)

OK, we skipped school!

So, we are going with K12 for homeschool.  They are like a magnet school only online.  They supply us with the computer, software, textbooks, teacher, etc.  Today we went to the K12 Discover Day at Circus Circus.  We were able to meet some of the administrators and teachers as well as look through her textbook for next year.  I was very impressed for the most part.  We are going to have a challenging year

Sarah was able to ride on all the rides at the inside amusement park.  She had a great time.  I have a roller coaster junkie!  She must have ridden the one roller coaster 12 times in a row :)  I was a little disappointed not to meet some more of the kids but I did look around and I really liked that the kids all around us were polite and dressed appropriately...of course what would I expect from this gathering!  I did get to talk to some parents while we were watching the kids and everyone was really happy with K12 this year.  I can't wait to get started!
