A little of this and that...

I am long overdue in thanking a couple of bloggers for some very special awards. This first one was given to me by Katherinellen of Welcome to Kats Korner. She is another Mississippi girl who I hope to meet one day. If you haven't been by her blog, check it out! She is very nice and I think you'll enjoy getting to know her! Thanks Katherinellen!
The second award comes from Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. I haven't know Susan very long, but enjoy checking her blog and look forward to her new posts. Be sure to check her blog on Tuesday ...she hosts a new blogging event "Tablescapes Tuesday." Thank you Susan!



Both of these awards are proudly displayed at the bottom of my page.
If any of you are reading this and don't already have one of these, please take the one you want and pass it on to others!

If you have been reading my blog, you know that although I'm retired, I went back to work for one semester to help out with a young mom pregnant with twins. I work with mostly children having trouble with reading, and want to pass on a web site that is great for young children learning their letters. I know some of you grandmas (or mamas) may not know about this, and it would be something you could introduce your preschool child to.
The site is www.starfall.com
It is an awesome site for learing the alphabet. I work with 4 kindergarteners at a time part of the day, and am using it with the small group. There is something about hearing a tiger roar that helps them remember T when they won't listen to anyone else! LOL

Giveaway: I have offered a giveaway this week for comments in celebration of my 100th post. As soon as I have the winner ready, I will make a post, so check back!
Have a wonderful day,

Congratulations on your awards!! In past years when Lexi went to computer time in school that is one of the site's they could go to and she loved it. I haven't checked to see if it is still age appropriate for her or not.
