It's Dare to Share Saturday!

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

Welcome to August! Where has the summer has gone?  For many years, August meant that it is time to think about going back to school.  This is the first year that all of my own kids (and bonus kids) are no longer going back to school. I do have one  currently in college, but he goes year round and doesn't need me to buy him clothes and school supplies.  :)  I am teaching again this year, but it will look different than in years past. Instead of being a building sub in elementary, I am teaching toddlers with another teacher at the pre-school/daycare.  It will be a change, but I am looking forward to it.  Speaking of work though, one of the downsides of working with little ones, you are also exposed to a lot of germs.  I had to miss a couple of days of work this week because I caught some kind of virus. I am starting to feel on the mend, so all is good now.  

Last weekend while in Michigan, I had a great time with my family and friends.  One thing that we were able to do was visit German Park.  On the last Saturday of each month in the summer, they have a German festival with food, beer, music and dancing.  It is always a lot of fun and we try to go when we can. 

Do you remember when I shared about my viral Barbie post on Instagram?  Well it is still growing, but has slowed down some.  It is currently at 3.1 million views. WHAT?!!  Another Barbie Dollar Tree post is close to a half million.  Today I shared a reel about the gorgeous fall Walmart finds that are under a dollar.  If you make fall crafts, you definitely check them out.  If you would like to see my Dollar Tree and other fun finds be sure to follow me over on Instagram.    

I am still working on my new Halloween listings and hope to have them up in my shop soon.  I am sharing my Road Trip Scavenger Hunt Bundle from my Etsy Shop again, because the end of the summer is time to get those last minute road trips in before school starts.  If you have kids, printable games are a great way to keep them busy in the car. 
Now that I shared what I have been up to, I would love to see what you have been up to.  Link up and HAVE FUN!!

  2. Hi Pam, thank you for hosting this party! My link number is 38.

    Yes, the summer is going much too quick. The grand girls will be heading back to school soon and the visits will be more spread out. They do not live in the same town as me, but not too far to visit. Just when school is in session, not much time in the evenings to go see them. We will be limited to the weekends.
    Have a wonderful day!

  3. The German Park sounds so fun! I would love to go to that. I did a similar thing--focused on August for back-to-school until my kids were big, and now I'm a teacher and focusing on it again. :) They're in college, but I don't worry about buying notebooks and pencils any more, which is great! Thanks for hosting Dare to Share for us. Have a great week.


I would love to hear from you!
