This is going to be a long list since I haven’t done a freebie post since the 20th. As I sit here and wait for my hubby to get ready, I figure I might as well be productive in something.

If you have been following my post here for little baby Avianna, the latest update is that after 2 different neurologists looking at her she’s been officially announced brain dead with a 1% chance of survival.
I’m just in tears at the thought of this poor 2 month old baby leaving so early in life and thinking what she has gone through. Her parents have made the decision to take her off life support soon and letting her go.
Please keep this poor baby in your continued thoughts and prayers that she goes peacefully and rests knowing of all the lives she has touched, even tho many of us have never met her.
Feel free to swipe the following graphic and place it on your blog or website.
We’re all praying and thinking of you baby Avi, may you be forever rest peacefully should your time come when you must leave us.
A Myspace page has also been created for her as well if you wish to leave a comment for her and her family: http://www.myspace.com/prayersforavie
Her Godmother also made a myspace page to keep updates for everyone praying:

I have two children, ages 2 and 4 who just love books. Teaching them to read has been a struggle, especially my 4 year old, but because of her interest it has gotten my 2 year old involved in the early reading process as well. I’ve been on the lookout recently for some helpful programs and projects to do with my girls to get them introduced to reading at their age levels. There are a ton of books, computer software and flash cards that can be found, however one place has stood out among the rest.
See Me Read is an Early Childhood Literacy Program which introduces children to language and encourages early reading while making it fun and easy for a child to learn. Using personalized learning products See Me Read provides a familiar experience that any child will use and have fun with. Starting out with using personal photos of your children interacting with items which are familiar to them, See Me Read provides them with visual stimulation which will in turn provide them with the ability to recognize whole words. See Me Read provides personalized kits which include photos, labels, reading cards, books and writing pads so that your children will not only have fun, but keep the attention on the task at hand.
See me read provides your child with a successful journey towards reading in just three easy steps. First you can visit www.seemeread.com and choose the See Me Read kit that’s right for your child, to complete a personalized kit take some pictures of your child with the words you have selected, your last step is to have fun with your child once the kit arrives and enjoy learning and introducing them to the wonderful world of reading.
My girls have enjoyed their kit since day one, and continue every day learning and recognizing new objects and words at their own level of literacy. The small difference it makes everyday has been for us, apparent when they try to help you read during a bedtime story. The ease of the program is great and it makes it fun so the kids want to continue to learn and thrive in their education of reading.
See Me Read is a very unique early childhood literacy program that brings a personalized perspective to each individual child, by using the whole-word method of reading instruction you are providing your child with repeated exposure to words that they are familiar with and that they encounter in their everyday life. I’m sure See Me Read will provide the beginning steps to a lifelong love of reading and learning not only to my children, but to your own as well.
Visit www.seemeread.com to find out more about this great and unique personalized reading program for your own kids, or as a gift for someone else’s.

And things tend to get a bit busy and hectic. Between various travels, vacations, and spending time with the girls, I’ve been and will continue to be busy this summer season. I just wanted to pop in here and say I may not be updating the blog as much as I have been in the past, doesn’t mean I’m not going to be around or continue with it, sometimes we all just have other lives and need a break.
I have some new reviews and giveaways coming up, I look forward to posting them when I have a few minutes this week and next. So keep an eye out, subscribe so you can be informed on when they come out.
My latest project will be painting our guest room, we just got some paint, so that project starts today, re-doing, re-painting, pulling up carpet etc etc. Next week my parents will be coming down to spend some time down here with us, and then the week after that, I’m off to Atlanta for a week for a family reunion with my in-laws, and will be celebrating my
30th 25th birthday there as well. Hopefully I’ll be back with something new to show you all as well
So busy times ahead, I won’t forget about the blog, you just won’t see me around and posting too much….
Hope you all have a great 4th of July!!!!
