I interrupt this unplanned blogging break to share a few "commercials". First, I wanted to thank Page for the wonderful CD/DVD she sent in my package from England. The kids love it and so do I! It is proven that drumming helps you both, concentrate and relax. It stimulates certain parts of the brain, which are important for learning and also stress relief. If you have never heard of Psalm Drummers, please click on the link to listen to them.
I also wanted to share our new, favorite author/illustrator. His name is Arnold Lobel. He has been around for quite a while. One of our favorite books is
"Grasshopper on the Road".My kids laugh through the entire read (every time we read it!). There are 6 short chapters and we split it into 2 days. The illustrations are wonderful.I won't ruin the story for you.....really, this author is a must if you have school age children or grandchildren. Many of his books are only $3.99, but I am certain your local library would carry this author!
Last commercial....I have found a WONDERFUL product for my dry skin! Tone Almond Milk body wash!I love the smell....remember I am all about the smell...and it makes your skin feel like silk. Not greasy, but very moisturized! The bottle is huge and the price is right! I am just tickled about this product.
