Dare to Share #178

It is Friday night, and you know what that means.. 
It is time to Dare to Share! 

Wow, there is a lot of changes happening here. We are finally finished at my old house. Tuesday we took several van loads of stuff to donate at a local church.  We packed up my car and a friend's van one more time, and moved our last load. We did not have room for a couple of things Kara really wanted, so we did sneak back on Wednesday morning for a couple of flower pots and a Hosta my grandma gave me 20 years ago. It has moved with me to every house. I am really hoping it survives this move.  My grandma died 10 years ago while I was living in my last house. I won't be able to get another one from her.  There is still a lot of organizing and going through things at our new place. It is very slowly coming together, but part of that is because I have not been home to work on it. I will have more time in the upcoming weeks.  

My kids are going through some changes this week as well  My younger two had their school registrations. My youngest is starting high school. I am not sure if either one of us is ready for that. I know she isn't looking forward to super early mornings.  She doesn't have any classes or lunch with her best friend, which means she will be meeting some new people this year.  She is going to stay in dance for another year, but cut back to only one class.  We just picked up her dance recital pics yesterday.  She is still having her headaches, and is not sure of her homework load so I left it up to her.. She might add in hip hop and ballet later if she is feeling up to it.   My oldest has decided that she is moving across the country to live with a friend's family.  I am not that excited about it, but she has graduated, and old enough to make some of her own decisions.  She will be leaving in a month! 

Remember when I shared about the Renaissance Festival a couple of weeks ago? Well unless something happens, we will be going to the Highland Fling this weekend.  We are pretty excited about it. I will be posting all about it next week.. You will be seeing lots of photos in men in kilts doing battle! 

I had been craving S'Mores this week, and chose the Nutella S'Mores Popcorn by Frugal Foodie Mama. I love the mix of sweet and salty.  I am also going to try something different this weekend.  I have chosen several other posts to feature this weekend on social media. I feel bad for not being able to keep up the last few months, and this will be one way for more eyes on your posts. There are so many great links each week, it is hard to choose. 

My co-host Kim from Kandy Kreations has a fun post this week.  Your kids would love to eat off a One Smart Cookie plate which you can make with one of her printables. Just be aware the sight of a cookie printable, may have them asking you for real cookies.. :) 

Now it is time for this week's party. You can link up anything that you would like to share.  If you are chosen as a Dare to Share Feature of the Day, your post will be featured on the blog and my social media.  This party is also seen on Kandy Kreations for double the exposure  Kim also choose posts to feature on her blog and social media  

Sorry the party is a few minutes late tonight. My computer decided to freeze as I was posting!   

Link up and HAVE FUN!
