    After the awesome time spent with family today it makes you realize how much "FAMILY" means and how much LOVE we share! My parents and brothers and sisters are awesome!

    The link is to a poem... That I'm not particularly interested in, I just LOVE the quote "every family has a story, welcome to ours." PERFECT for my front entryway!!

    We are a very close knit family. We have issues but we stick together through thick and thin. When something good happens for another , we indulge in their happiness and we are there when others need help.

    "Silence is Golden...unless you have kids, then silence is just suspicious" - Funny mom quote that's correct.

    Being a mom and having them be the center of my world is the best possible feeling ever!! Wouldn't give it up for anything!! Love that I have been able to stay home with my kids in the years they are young enough to still enjoy me spending time with them. ♥

    .I wish every mom could treat their children this way. Just can't imagine what life would be like if I had a mom that expected something in return for everything she did for me?

    Teaching Learners with Multiple Special Needs: A Few Workboxes from: teachinglearnersw... I like that the teachers are using real coins. I never understood teaching students with plastic money - how are they supposed to understand that what we are working with in the classroom is "the same" as the metal coins they might find on a parent's night stand.
