Graduation Party or Bust!

I am thrilled at some of the ideas I have come up with for Skylar's Graduation party!!!!!  As far as the food we are going to have burgers and hot dogs with all the fixings; backed beans, coleslaw, potato salad, and all things yummy! :)  We will also have fruit and veggie Kabobs, push pop cake with pudding pops, assorted candies, dips, chips, watermelon.....you get the picture.  ;)


Fill My Coffee Cup with Prayer... Please!

Crazzzzzy time here in the Manic House....we have Grandpa visiting from Vietnam.  We are trying to get to a certain spot in our school work that will make me feel accomplished before we head into Summer schooling.
We always school through the Summer, because we tend to take a lot of time off for the Holidays and Birthdays!  :)


Manic Mom's Kids Speak Spanish


I have to start my review of Spanish for You! with a back story.  It is a story that my Family has yet to let me forget about and when they found out I was asked to Review this Spanish Curriculum they expressed their condolences for Debbie Annett and her Spanish Curriculum.  Okay, now for the back story....  In college, I needed a foreign language and there was a Spanish class open at the perfect time between my other classes.  The teacher was amazing....I loved him.  We had themed lunches, outings as a class and the lectures were never boring.  The only problem was that I could never seem to pass the class.  I took it not once or twice, but threeeeeeeeee times. 


Bento for Everyone!

On the Go Lunch for Kaden Tier 1of 2

It's Saturday and I am cleaning for family to come and visit.  Actually I am procrastinating the whole cleaning thing at the moment.  Which brings me here with several pics of Bento Boxes this week.  YAY!!!  So here we go!


Bento Cuteness!!!!!

Here is my Box of Cuteness!

YAY!!!!  Today is a Happy Day!!!!  Why, you ask?  Because it's Bento Box in the Mail Day!!!  Ok, what I mean is 2 days ago I slapped down my credit card number and clicked a bunch of cute things and the mail man happily delivered them this morning with a BIG smile.  I think he knew it was a BIG Box of Cuteness.  That or it's just one day away from being FRIDAY!!!!
Anyway.......now for the good stuff....PICTURES of all my Bento Cuteness!!!!


Kaden is Getting a Bento......

Everyone knows we have a HARD time getting Kaden to eat his food.  And when we do get him to eat, it takes F-O-R-E-V-E-R for him to finish.  And he gets it all over him like he's trying out for the Cutest Clown in the WORLD contest.  Believe it or not he Loves fruits and veggies!!!  Don't get me wrong, he isn't at the table "tantruming"it up because there happens to be carrots on his plate.  It goes more like this:


Plan Your Work & Work Your Plan!!!

So far my favorite review has to be The Ultimate Homeschool Planner by Dedra Bell from Apoligia!  It has everything I could possibly ask for and then some.  Funny thing is I had been looking for something just like this to help me stay on top of my crazy life.  Having 3 kids in 3 different stages of school life has me scratching my head sometimes asking myself where am I and what am I supposed to be doing right now?  :)


Sad, Puppy Dog Eyes!

Around our house we call Mahala the Dog Whisperer.  Actually, everyone that knows her says she has a gift with Animals.  She is so loving and comforting to them, they just know she is "good People".

Dogs just know and no matter where we go if there is a Dog around it will wobble over to Mahala and flash her their sad, puppy dog eyes.  And if it's a stray or at Kaden's Horse therapy Ranch and Rescue she will give me her sad, puppy dog eyes.  But, Momma's STRONG!  Nope, Nope, Nope I tell her!!!!


April is Autism Awareness Month

 This is a great article I found about Autism.  Autism is different in every person.  There is No one look, behavior or kind of person.  Kaden has Many faces of Autism.
We all Love him so much and Celebrate Him EVERYDAY!!!!
April is Autism Awareness Month
