A quick tip

Just like I loooove my clearance bread at Ralphs and Sprouts, I also love to find a good deal on canned items. I always peruse the clearance rack for dented cans that the store has marked down. These are my favorite. Especially because canned items are typical ingredients in casseroles and quick dishes. These can get pricey so when I find them reduced because of a dent or two then I stock up. Now, a dent or two is just fine. But, if you come across a bulging can, steer clear. No botulism please!
Another great thing about these clearance finds is if you are lucky enough to find name brands you can also use coupons to get these at even greater deals!

Technical difficulties

We are having some problems with Sydney's little website. For some reason now that the name has changed it's content can't be located. We are going to enjoy our beautiful Spring Saturday with a birthday party to attend in the afternoon. Hopefully early next week I will have everything figured out! Happy weekend!

A Few Quotations From Charlotte Mason

"The question is not, how much does the youth know? When he has finished his education -- but how much does he care? And about how many orders of things does he care? In fact, how large is the room in which he finds his feet set? And, therefore, how full is the life he has set before him?"

"Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education."

"Nobody knows how much is possible to any one person. Many persons go through life without recognizing this. They have no notion of how much they can do and feel, know and be; and so their lives turn out poor, narrow and disappointing."

Something to chew on for a bit...
