Double Coupons

I got home tonight and found in my mailbox a flyer for Kmart.
They are doubling coupons upto $2.00 October 1st-5th.
I am hoping to come up with some good deals this week.

P&G also sent me $74 in coupons, isn 't that so nice of them?

Just to sum it up...

It's been busy around here lately.

We started school on Monday September 8th.
It's taking sometime to get back into our routine.

My boys are in a pilot program called U.S. Made Leaders.
They are meeting on Monday and Thursday evenings for the
next couple of weeks.

Today they start Art Class and a couple of weeks ago they started piano
lessons again. I'm excited because my boys dedcided to play a duet
this year during their recital.

Upwards basketball also starts soon, well not too soon.
In October they go for evaluations and then practice and games start in January.

My brother-in-law was married on Sunday evening it was a very nice ceremony. My husband had the honor of helping perform the ceremony.

We are in the process of getting new windows this October.
We had two yard sales to raise money for insulation. Looks like this year will be warmer than last years.

My husband jokes around and tells people we were gonna go on a cruise but now the cruise will be in our home.

South Carolina

Here are a few pictures from our Mission Trip to the Children's Home.

This is the town where the children's home is located, this picture is of the older boys and the youth that went on the trip. While we were there we spent most of the time with the older boys at the home. They helped us with the yard work they had us do and the boys took us on a bike ride around the town which is not that big so it took about 45 minutes, during the ride we stopped twice that probably took up about 15 to 20 minutes of the time. Before going on the bike ride we had to get bikes for everyone, this took longer than the actual bike ride. Wal-mart donates bikes to the home that are not always in great shape. So we had to go through the bikes to figure out which ones would actually work, I wound up with a bike that reminded me of Wizard of Oz, the lady in the beginning of the movie's bike. It took me a little while to get used to the handle bars because they were so awkward.

Here are a couple pictures from Myrtle Beach

And of course I had to get a picture of palm trees.

These are pictures of a fountain that was in a gift shop.

This picture below was taken by Kalene of my son Chris on the way home sleeping.

Yard Sale

We bought a fixer upper and it is gradually coming together.
This past weekend we had a yard sale,
were trying raise money to insulate our attic.
We are having another yard sale this weekend and
I was wondering if anyone has any good tips for a successful sale.
