Back to School We Go

Today was back to school! Oh what a day.  Munchkin was so excited to start Pre-K4, because in Pre-K4 you have to color within the lines and you don't get to take naps.  They are the big kids.  Can I tell you how excited I am that Munchkin loves school? Oh my. It makes my heart so glad.

I spent yesterday afternoon doing all his school supply shopping.  Look at this list!  Yes- for a 4 year old. I don't even mind because he goes to a really great school that take really great care of the kids and I know they'll use these supplies to the fullest.  I thought to myself yesterday "what will it be like when I need to stock his dorm room?" Oh my!

 It was so great to see everyone when we pulled up. It really is like a family there. 

This is our second year at this school and all the Pre-K classes are together in one building. So we are really close with all the teachers.  I found this idea on Pinterest yesterday and I wish I could credit the source but I wasn't logged in, and couldn't save the pin.  It's a mason jar with chocolate chip cookies in it, and the tag says:

With you as my teacher, I am sure to be one smart cookie!

 Here's my big boy, all excited for his first day, can't you tell?  Another Pinterest idea. (Of course I can't find it now, when I do I'll come back and add the link).

He's holding a picture of him on the first day of school last year. It's pretty fun to see his growth. Last year he looked a little unsure in the picture, this year he's all smiles.

I love starting a few first day of school traditions.

Thank you to all the teachers who do what they do. Here's to a great school year!

A Help Meet

I write this post after much prayer and consideration about whether now is the time for me to say this.  I came across the above picture on instagram one day, and it caused my spirit to leap.  I have shared with you here my journey of going through a divorce, the challenges I have faced, my time of singlehood while healing.

I have entered a new season.  A season of studying on what it means to be a good wife.  Not just a wife by name because one wears a ring and is married to her husband, but a wife that God created us to be.  The help meet He introduced to Adam in Genesis 2.  The companion that is not just along for the ride, but the one who truly makes her husband's life better.

When I saw this picture, it personified everything I've been studying about and praying for.  To be the kind of woman who, when I'm blessed with the opportunity to be a wife again, does not just go along for the ride....but is active in keeping our marriage firmly rooted in the Word so that it c…

CVS Game

I'm back in the game ya'll!  Back in the day when Dave and I were newlyweds and had just bought our first house, I started playing the CVS coupon game.  I was able to stock up so much that I remember coming back a year later after moving back to New Mexico and Dave still had not had to buy toilet paper!
I haven't played in a very long time because coupling takes time. Recently, I came across this great Youtube channel and it seriously inspired me to jump back in. Right now I'm only dealing with CVS, I haven't bothered to begin planning for other shopping trips.
Jumping back in hasn't been with out flaws. Last week I watched Toni's video spent Friday night printing and clipping coupons, made my list, thought I had a plan, and then woke up Saturday morning ready to go. Something didn't work just right because I ended up spending about $120 out of pocket. I did save like $50 and the good news is I earned $15 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB). So this week I was r…
