We just finished our 6th month of the 12 month Brain Training Program. Brain retraining is done through a series of physical exercises that selectively accesses a certain part of the brain by having the eyes look in a specified direction. That direction is directly related to a sensory stimulation point.
“C” still continues to enjoy the program. It is a very intensive program that we complete 4-5 times a week. She does not get bored of the activities at all. This past month’s activities addressed matching (numbers and letter combinations), auditory discrimination, Continue reading…
Here comes the biggest deal of the year….what to wear on the first day of school.
O-M-G……..are you all dreading it as much as I am?
What’s in? What’s not?
We recently went back to school shopping. Afterwards, I checked things out online to see what the fashion currently is. I am happy to report that we bought a good deal of clothes that were “totally hip dude.” (I’m also glad to see that I still have some fashion sense.) Here is a picture of the highlights of our trip for our oldest:
Graphic t’s, cropped shirts, lace and the cardigan. We always need that cardigan. It allows her to wear short sleeved shirts that are still hip, throughout the winter.
Of course yesterday, I realized she needed shoes. I saw these and couldn’t help myself. I’m a sucker for knee high shoes. Luckily, they were on clearance AND I was about to go grocery shopping with my coupons and SAVE that exact amount. It was destiny. (By the way, I’m jealous.) These do, however, meet my criteria which is: The shoes have to be versatile. She can wear them with shorts, jeans and skirts and they don’t necessarily have to match. I will allow her to buy one more pair of shoes but those have to be nice, brown ones.
So was is “in” this year? I’ll tell you. After seeing what is in stores and checking out some fashion magazines, here is what I have found:
Knee high boots/sneakers
Graphic t-shirts (including cropped T’s that need to have a shirt underneath it)
Don’t forget the all important “coolest backpack ever”
Good luck and I hope your kids all have a great school year!

Wondering how many papers you should buy this weekend or if it is worth buying any at all? Check out what coupons are in this Sunday’s paper today!
I love checking in on this each week so I know what to expect. It is also good to know what I should be getting so that when I look through the paper before I purchase it, I can see if all the inserts are there or not. I have too often purchased a paper only to find there was no insert.

It was one of those rainy days where the kids didn’t know what to do. So, we reached into our Summer Activities Box and found the idea to make their own crest. They were extremely excited and couldn’t wait to get started. Truthfully, my oldest was squealing like a little girl because she was so excited to do this. It was highly comical.
It’s a great way to talk to your child about their likes, dislikes and personality. It was a great bonding time between us as well. They were very proud of their crests because it represented them. You can find the full instructions here.
