"My children, who don't know they play on a graveyard. Peeta says it will be okay. We have each other. And the book. We can make them
"I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we'll never know most of them. But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there." ~Stephen Chobsky, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower"
Love this! A quote from The Perks of Being a Wallflower. “I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.”
I want this tattoo placement, but for it to say "We are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we'll never know most of them. But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there". -The Perks of Being a Wallflower ❤❤❤
Something to wear
Sometimes this is so hard and sometimes it's hard to be empathetic because you want to shake people and hope they wake up...but we don't know what kind of battle they fight when they're alone. The best we can do for each other is to love each other, have patience for each other, and be kind to each other.
We all have busy lives....I just want to feel that I am cared about. I always try to make my friends feel loved and that I care about them. If something shitty happens I just want to know that they are worried about wether I am okay or not.

10 Decisions you will have to make (or will be made for you if you don't know any different) at the birth of your child. Very good information for ALL soon-to-be mothers or those who plan to have children one day.
I Have... Who Has... Student's Favorites Back to School edition is a perfect "get to know you activity." Each student will have to work with each other to play this "fill in the blank game." Once all the cards are filled out: *Collect them *Shuffle them *Then redistribute one card per student *Student with "the first card" reads their card word for word. Then whoever has the card with the answer to that card reads their card and so forth.
SEATING and SETTINGS.
Intentionally Make Mistakes as a Learning Tool (Blog Post): I think the best mathematicians are the people who are the very best at analyzing their mistakes. Students who struggle have a harder time, so we play a short game each morning called "What's my mistake?"
If you have tried making macarons or heard of stories, you know that making them can be a bit tricky. I have made several batches of this macaron recipe, and each time they turn out perfect. I do a little dance out of excitement, honestly, it really does make my day.
Very true!! My children will always know they were loved by their father and I because we have and always will be there and will never give up on them...this will always be their home because we've never given up on them.
I have no friends who live near me.....my friends are all over other parts of the country and even in other parts of the world. This quote is so appropriate for those friends. We may be far from each other but we are still there for each other.
Pinner says: Cinnamon ornaments-- we have these ornaments on our tree from about 20 years ago and they STILL smell amazing! I'm glad to now know how to make them :)
Rainbow Loom. I don't have one myself but I know how to make them. I borrow the bands from my friends though (I think I have more fun with them then they do!).
anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.
25 Manners Kids Should Know #1: When asking for something, say "Please." #2: When receiving something, say "Thank you." #3: Do not interrupt grown-ups who are speaking with each other unless there is an emergency. They will notice you and respond when they are finished talking. #4: If you do need to get somebody's attention right away, the phrase "excuse me" is the most polite way for you to enter the conversation. #5: When you have any doubt about doing something, ask permission first. It can save you from many hours of grief later. #6: The world is not interested in what you dislike. Keep negative opinions to yourself, or between you and your friends, and out of earshot of adults. #7: Do not comment on other people's physical characteristics unless, of course, it's to compliment them, which is always welcome. #8: When people ask you how you are, tell them and then ask them how they are. #9: When you have spent time at your friend's house, remember to thank his or her parents for having you over and for the good time you had. #10: Knock on closed doors -- and wait to see if there's a response -- before entering. #11: When you make a phone call, introduce yourself first and then ask if you can speak with the person you are calling. #12: Be appreciative and say "thank you" for any gift you receive. In the age of e-mail, a handwritten thank-you note can have a powerful effect. #13: Never use foul language in front of adults. Grown-ups already know all those words, and they find them boring and unpleasant. #14: Don't call people mean names. #15: Do not make fun of anyone for any reason. Teasing shows others you are weak, and ganging up on someone else is cruel. #16: Even if a play or an assembly is boring, sit through it quietly and pretend that you are interested. The performers and presenters are doing their best. #17: If you bump into somebody, immediately say "Excuse me." #18: Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and don't pick your nose in public. #19: As you walk through a door, look to see if you can hold it open for someone else. #20: If you come across a parent, a teacher, or a neighbor working on something, ask if you can help. If they say "yes," do so -- you may learn something new. #21: When an adult asks you for a favor, do it without grumbling and with a smile. #22: When someone helps you, say "thank you." That person will likely want to help you again. This is especially true with teachers! #23: Use eating utensils properly. If you are unsure how to do so, ask your parents to teach you or watch what adults do. #24: Keep a napkin on your lap; use it to wipe your mouth when necessary. #25: Don't reach for things at the table; ask to have them passed.
Oh my! Two of my all time favourite House Mouse stamps now come unmounted. I already have them but those of you who don't might like to know this!
Okay, maybe if/when we have a girl...Looks like fun to make either way. nightstand play kitchen
Until we have seem someone's darkness, we don't really know who they are. Until we have forgiven someone's darkness, we don't really know what love is.
Snow Shooters- an easy to make toy for kids and a great boredom buster for Winter. My kids have asked to play with these everyday since we made them!
This is our community. We laugh together, talk to solve problems, help each other, make mistakes and learn from them, sometimes dance, encourage each other, sometimes play, clean up our messes and then make more messes and clean up again....etc
- until we have seen someone's darkness we don't really know who they are. Until we have forgiven someone's darkness, we don't really know what love is. -Marianne Williamson
I Know a couple people who want to be me & copy things I do, at first its flattering but then it becomes annoying. If i could say something to these people it would be, "I know what you are doing, but your so much more interesting when you are yourself. Let me spread my wings so we can fly beside each other rather than fill each others shadow."
I don't know what people are scared of. Maybe they think their children will be influenced, but I've got to tell you, I was raised by two heterosexuals. Everywhere I looked, heterosexuals. And they did not influence me. It's time we love people for who they are and let them love who they want. - Ellen DeGeneres
If we don't teach our children who God is, someone else will teach them everything that He isn't.
For the boys
Let them pick 2-3 chores to do each week...I don't know that I expect my 3 year old to wipe cabinets, but she can certainly help dust!
