Wyatt has really loved preschool so far this year. He has lots of new friends and some are old. He has 5 from his class last year. This made it nice for these kids, so they kind of new people already. He tells me he has a new friend and when you ask him what his name is he says 'I don't know, he's just my friend'. He talks about his teachers all the time so I am assuming he likes them, lol.

Total After Coupon= $1.39
RRs Earned= $3.00
1 small filler (suggested Russell Stover candy @ $0.39 w/in-ad coupon)
used $2 RR from last week
Grand Total OOP= $4.78
Total Value= $16.78 with $10.00 Register Rewards remaining!
Actually for a few dollars more I did another transaction
Use the $2/1 coupon from the Walgreens Healthy Savings coupon booklet(Will deduct $4 since you're purchasing two)
Total after coupons= $3.oo
So actually I spent $7.78, but I earned $20 in RRs

I am so not as organized as I thought. Really it seems like I am but sometimes I wonder if to much organizing gets in my way. Or am I organized enough and just need a better plan to get it all done. I just don't feel like I have it all together sometimes. I really try to be, but I just feel like I can't do it all and I don't get everything I want done on a daily basis. So it's not all jsut about organizing I guess I is getting it all done.
With cleaning (this includes everything in the house: laundry, vacuuming, dishes, etc.), outside yardwork, driving Wyatt around now to soccer and school, picking Colton up weekends, being the classroom mom (this is new this year), meal planning, shopping, cooking 3 meals a day, blogging, couponing (this has really paid off for us), alone time with Derek (which hasn't happened to much with his night job), being a mommy, scrapbooking (which has taken a back burner), watching my shows (thank goodness for the dvr), working out, me time.
Now don't get me wrong I love a good challenge and I love being organized and getting it all done, but I think i need to get a better system. What do you do??
Here is what i do now-
I have my calender and dry erase board at my desk. I figure this is where my phone and computer is so it works best here for me; to make appt., pay bills or just see what is going on on a daily basis. On the dry erase board I have a list of monthly bills and I put the amount and due date on them and when I pay them for the month I just cross them off. On the calender has holidays, days off for school, when the boys are here, birthdays, appts.
What I would like to do better- I have gotten really bad about birthdays, it is like I see them coming and tell myself ok need to send a card, but ya the day comes and goes and it doesn't get done.
On my fridge I have a dry erase board that I put my daily To Dos on and I have a magnet clip that I put my menu and/or the recipes for the week on . This is actually really working well for me. It is all where I can see it, love this spot. This works well for me.

He was last when they were running, kind of went on his own when they were talking to the group, kept asking the coaches What do we do when we win?, kept saying he was tired, when they would ask him his name he went on some tangent about his new soccer shins and socks. It is funny the kid can sit for hours playing with his trains, but couldn't focus for that hour on practice.
But all in all I think he had fun!
I think it is just going to take a little longer for him to catch on. He did this one funny thing, need to try to get it on video, when he would be dribbling and he would miss the ball he would run all the way around the ball and start kicking it again when he made it all the way around.

So here is one of the gates, don't think they really use it right now, but the fence that is connected to it is made of Civil War rifles.
We got a few bottles to feed the goats, yea going inside the fence was a bad idea. They totally attack you and push each other out of the way to get to the food. We had to go outside the fence to finish cause they were attacking Wyatt and he got a little freaked out.
Wyatt and I got to ride together on the Merry Go Round.
