I will give more details later, but Wed. I had a job opportunity arise and I had to make a quick decision. So, I quit my job Wed. and started at new one yesterday! It was a bit overwhelming to have to make such an impulse decision, but my first day went great and I feel that I made the right decision! I'm working with the ABC program for 3 and 4 year olds where Kennedie goes. It's very busy all day to say the least, but it goes by fast and it is very rewarding! I hated to leave my other job without a notice, but they completely understood and were not mad at all, which made me feel a lot better about my choice.
Kennedie is having a little trouble adjusting to Momma becoming teacher instead of momma during the day, but she will be ok. She started doing better before the day was over yesterday.
Stay tuned this weekend because I will be having 2 giveaways. One for the review I discussed in a previous post and one for See Kai Run shoes! See Kai Run shoes are wonderful for those of you who haven't tried them! They are by far my favorite kids' shoes ever!

Today we went to the lake with some other church members and some of their family and friends as well. We had a blast!! The girls got a little sun burned and so did I, but nothing too bad. We ate BBQ sandwiches and chicken and rode the tube behind the party barge.
There were a couple of people with cameras and Lou sent me these pics from her camera and I love them! Stratton is my shy one, so there's only one shot of him. He tends to avoid the camera. Now Kennedie on the other hand, loves the camera! The boys wouldn't ride the tube, but the Kennedie loved it and Kadie was scared a couple of times when we hit the waves, but she liked it. Kadie liked "driving" the boat with David the most though. I think she could've done that all day if he would've let her!

Awhile back, I won a giveaway for the Complete Laundry System from Mystic Wonders Inc. I have been using the system for a couple of months now and I love it! I have not had to buy laundry detergent or dryer sheets since and it has saved me loads of money! I have 4 kids and there are 6 of us in the house, so laundry is done A LOT!
This system includes the wonder ball and two dryer balls.
From their site:
The Wonder Ball works through physics. The frequency enhanced mineral blend within the ball creates an energy field when agitated in the machine. When this energy meets with the water, the water is in its best cleaning state. It is the water that does the cleaning. No detergent needed. Do not put Wonder Ball in dryer
The Wonder ball lasts about 3 years/2000 washes!! That's a long time! Just imagine how much detergent you buy over 3 years time! All you have to do is drop the Wonder ball into you washing machine and put your clothes in and start it up! It takes less time then having to measure out your detergent!
I know this sounds unreal and I didn't believe it myself when I first read about it, but I knew it would be worth the try! And I can tell you first hand that it does work and it works great! My clothes smell so clean!
The complete laundry system also comes with two dryer balls.
From their site:
Simply place the two balls in dryer with wet clothes, turn on dryer. Working together in balance, the balls keep your clothes separated. The nubs keep redistributing the heat; cutting drying time.
Engineered for a lifetime. No fabric softeners or sheets needed.
The dryer balls really do cut down on your drying time and your clothes are less wrinkled! The dryer balls even last a lifetime!
Mystic Wonders, Inc. also have many other products. They have microfiber cloths, which I really want to try. They have a yellow one that is great for delicate surfaces. It is good for dusting and polishing. They have a gray cloth that is great for aggressive cleaning, and the blue cloth is best for absorbency, dusting, and drying!
Now, for the best part! Mystic Wonders is giving away one of the Complete laundry systems like I have to one of my readers!
Mandatory Entry: Go to Mystic Wonders, Inc. and tell me one thing you like about the Complete Wonder System or another product that you would like to try. Be sure to leave your email address in your comment.
Extra Entry: Follow me thru blogger for 1 extra entry.(leave a comment for each entry)
This giveaway will end August 21st at midnight. Winner will be chosen by Random.org. I will email the winner and they will have 48 hours to reply or another winner will be chosen.
Thanks for entering and Good Luck!

It's almost time for school to start back which means crunch time for getting clothes, supplies, shots, physicals, birth certificates, and so on and so on! It really crept up on me too! I was thinking I still had a couple of weeks, but nope, it's next week!
My oldest is going to the 4th grade, the next is going to 1st grade, and my third is starting the ABC preschool program! So, all that's let is the baby and then, no more daycare!
It's bittersweet to me because it's nice to have them all in school and out of diapers, but I won't have anymore actual babies! Of course they all are my babies and will always be my babies, but it's not the same!
This does not mean that I want anymore though at ALL! Believe me, 4 is plenty, and my 4 expecially! The girls definetly give me a run for my money and it's a bit crazy most days around my house! As soon as I get a new memory card for my camera I will be posting more pics!

I can't believe I've forgotten to write a post about the concert! It was wonderful!! I had a great time! They all sounded so much better in person than on TV! Of course Adam was my favorite!!! I know, I know, Kris is from Arkansas and I should like him best, but sorry I don't. But I will say he did do a great job also, it's just NO ONE can hold a candle to Adam's performance skills! Adam also did a duet with Allison that was great too. It's the same on they did on the show to "Slow ride"!
I do have pictures, but they are on my friends camera and I don't have them on my computer yet. I brought my camera which would've taken better pictures, but I didn't realize that my memory card didn't work until I got up there! Bummer, I know, but I think we still got some decent shots. We had great seats and Kris Allen's family sat in the box seats behind us, so that was neat! His family was soooo proud! It was very heart warming to see how they responded to hearing Kris on the stage.
Hopefully I'll be able to share pics soon!
