It's Friday night, and you know what that means..
It is time to Dare to Share!
And Poof! It's already mid August. Does anyone else feel like they did not have a summer this year? I do realize why my summer may seem on the short side. My school where I worked did not get out until mid June. Then my move to Ohio took up a big part of the summer. We were able to go on vacation last week, but did not spend a lot of time outside because of a heatwave. It was close to 100 degrees every single day. It just feels like all of a sudden we are going back to school. Today was the first day of my bonus son's Senior year of high school. He is going back three weeks earlier than I would be if was still in Michigan teaching. It has not hit me yet, that I am not teaching this upcoming school year, but we will see what happens in a couple of weeks.
Do you feel like this summer seemed super short too? Let me know i the comments.
As I mentioned above, we were able enjoy a fun vacation visiting my mom, and then spend a few days in Branson, Mo. This week I was able to post my review of the Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center. We really enjoyed all the different activities in the center, which you can read more about in the post. I have more posts that I will be sharing about this upcoming weeks about Red Oaks 2 (an interesting tiny town started by the artist Lowell Davis) and our visit to the Butterfly Palace.

I posted yesterday about some exciting news I just found out.. The Dollar Tree has updated their website and is now selling Dollar Tree Plus Items Online! (<-- read more about it here) This makes me so happy because I do not have a Dollar Tree Plus in Ohio or in Michigan, and they have some pretty cool items for only $3 and $5. Another secret I can share with you, if you love gnomes and having a hard time finding them in store, they are selling them online. They even have exclusive online only gnomes for Halloween. EEEKKK! Many of their best selling items can be bought in small quantities and shipped to your store for FREE, so you will definitely want to check out that post.
I also just learned something else interesting this week. Have you heard of Audible? I just heard about it recently. I do know about audiobooks, because when I was teaching there were several kids who needed to listen to books, because they struggled with reading. Well on Audible, there are thousands of books and podcasts available to listen to in all genres. While there is a monthly membership cost, they do give a 30 Day Free Trial to test it out. If you ever need to gift idea for someone who loves books, they also have gift memberships of 3, 6 and 12 months. This may be a good time to look into this with school starting back up and being time to get back to the books!
Well it is getting to be that time.. Time to get this party started!
