Bullying Again...

I know I know I seem to bring this subject up a lot, but I have a question or 2 for all the parents that read my blog.

At what point do you think it goes from just kids being kids to bullying?
In Elementary School I expect a few little tiffs about someone cutting in line, the occasional being pushed, a little he said she said, and a little name calling. What I didn't expect was the constantly getting kicked everyday for 3 weeks, the getting pushed around everyday for 3 weeks, or the older kids cussing out the younger kids.
For me that is when it turned from kids being kids to bullying at least in my eyes.

What would do if your child was being bullied and you saw nothing being done to help them?
For me I honestly got to a point that even I didn't think I could help them. They were doing everything they were suppose to according to the School's Anti- Bullying Policy. Instead of getting help they were getting told "I don't really like tattle tales", "Oh just ignore it", and "Just stay away from them".

What steps would you take after your child received a Death Threat? What if your child was the one that was  responsible for that threat? 
For me I pulled my kids out of that school because the threat along with all the bullying equaled a place that was not safe for my kids. This threat was not just a child saying "Oh you are dead now" this threat was in picture form. The other child was right there in the school and my son's classroom the very next day, I guess to me the child should of received at least one day suspension for his actions.

I only ask these questions because I have been told I should do this or I should do that and I have also been told that I should not care about what the school does now because My kids no longer go there. My kids may no longer go to that school but they still go to another school in the same district. I feel that no child should have to go through what my children went though and if that means helping the school come up with ideas for what should have been done or what will be done from now on, then so be it.

Shout Out For Fall!!

Fall!! This is my absolute favorite time of year. At least it is in my home state where there are actual trees that turn from green to beautiful shades of red and yellow, but despite the fact that we live in the desert we have been having some fun.

With my daughter's Brownie Troop we were able to head out to a pumpkin patch. It was a great time and I actually posted about the trip Here.  Fall can also be a very messy time with Halloween parties and jumping around in a big leaf pile (another thing I have been missing). I find that my kids learn amazing things just by taking some time outside to explore and have fun. That is why I was so very excited to be a part of Growing Tree Toys and Shout's Go Play initiative blogger Program.  Just check out  Shout's Facebook Page and you can find all kinds of fun! You can also find so many wonderful outdoor learning toys at Growing Tree Toys, they have all kinds of fun things that your children will love so much that they will forget they are actually learning.

If you are drawing a blank on how get your children to enjoy the outdoors and the wonderful nature surrounding them check out the  52 Activities In Nature card set. As part of the Blogging program I was given some of Shout's wonderful products as well as a set of the cards I mentioned above free from Shout.

I put one of the products to the ultimate test. While at the Cub Scout pack meeting my kids were able to dress up, my son's costume choice this year is a white Karate outfit, yup, you already know what happened don't you? Well they were serving Red juice. Here is a video of How a Shout Product saved the costume.



I have tried other types of stain removing sprays but always come back to Shout. I have also used the original stain removing gel. Still I am amazed how the Shout Advanced got rid of a stain that to me is one of the hardest to get out. With 4 kids and places that still think that Red Juice is a great beverage to serve to kids I may have to keep Shout on hand at all times. It has literally saved my son's Halloween costume making this mommy very happy.

The pack of nature activity cards and products were given to me for free from Shout, all opinions are 100% my own.

Do You Shutterfly?

With the Holiday season just around the corner, I am sure many of you have already or are planning very soon to get that perfect Holiday photo taken so you can send it along with your holiday cards out to all your family and friends.


Maybe you are looking for the perfect Christmas invitations to invite everyone you know to the amazing annual party you throw every year. You could even be looking for something to be used after the Holiday season like personalized thank you cards to thank friends and family for the wonderful gifts you received.


You don't have to search all over to find the perfect place to take care of any of the above mentioned items. There is only one site that you need to know about it and that is shutterfly.com.  You can get all kinds of neat items from here. I have been looking around the site because like many of you, I need to find what I think is the perfect Christmas Photo Card.


I love the cards that fold open, I don't really know why except to me it feels more like a real card. I have a pretty big family and I really like to include each of the kids individually, so I look for a card that holds at least 4 photos, but one that holds 5 photos in which I can include not only each of the kids but also a family photo is the perfect card to me. Oh and one other thing that I look for is that each of the photos on a card are the same size. To me this makes for a neat and clean card.


After looking at shutterfly for probably close to an hour (okay it may have been 2 hours) because there are so many amazing cards, I found 3 that I have fallen in love with.


1. Joy Oh Joy American Lung Association Holiday 5x7 Folded Card This card is bright and fun with a place for each of my 4 kids and they each have the same size photo. I Love It!!


2. Cool Blue Snowflake Holiday 5x7 Folded Card I love the colors on this one. The blue is such a wonderful blue color and the name matches perfectly to the card. Once again there is a spot for each of my kids and again the spots are all the same size. Perfect!!


3. Elegant Greetings Christmas 5x7 Folded Card This one is one I saw last and it is the exact card I was looking for. The colors are perfect and there is not just a spot for all my kids, there is also a spot for our family photo to be included. Yes, this is a card that will hold 5 photos. Each photo of the kids is the same size with one in the middle that is bigger and will fit our family photo. Honestly seeing this photo card gets me excited and wanting to hurry up and get that perfect picture taken, not that I have not already been trying to snap one of each of the kids because I have been. It is the whole family together that can take 3, 4, maybe 10 takes before we get one where everyone is finally looking in the same direction. LOL

When Bullying Gets Worse...

Today is the last day of school for 3 of my kids. 2 of them will be going to a new school and 1 of them will be home schooled.
Yesterday my oldest who is in 4th grade received a death threat. Another child drew a picture and wrote Dead Blake across the top. This came after both my 1st grader and my 4th grader being bullied for the past month.
This morning I took them to school, I didn't want to, I wanted to keep them home but I knew that the transfer to a different school would be easier if they didn't miss too many days. This morning I walked into the office and asked for 3 withdrawal forms. This morning I filled them out right there. This morning I had a talk with the Assistant Principal (again). After all of that. I went to each of my kids and told them TODAY is the last day they will be at this school. They both cried, they both know the reasons, but they both so wanted this school to be a good experience for them. So much so that they are willing to disregard all the horrible things that have happened to them.
Today I went to the new school to start the transfer process. Today I saw a wonderful school that cares about each child within the school. This is the school that my children can go to without being called names, without being bullied, and without me having to worry about them.

I have called the School District about this incident. My children may be done with the school, but I am not. Something needs to change for that school. I pray that the next child to get bullied in that school will never come. I pray that the School District steps up and the few kids get removed from the school.

I just want every parent to take your children seriously and listen to them. Bullying is a horrible thing to have happen. It is up to us Parents to look out for our children and never stop until something is done. Always remember that even being called can and does HURT.

And The Winner Is!!!!

What I did not place into the time line was all the other schools and separations, also our other losses.

Thank You for taking a step back in time with me. Today I will be baking a Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese frosting for The Hubbyman as his gift. I may even throw in a nice dinner.

Bzzz Agent Fun with Elmer's and X-Acto Products!!

As a Bzz Agent I received a kit in the mail. This is what it looked like


When I first opened the box, ideas just rushed into my head. Not only are these products great for scrapbookers, they are also wonderful items to use with the kids for school projects, a fun craft time,  or in one of my children's case a science project.  That is right Blake has started on his Science Project and he just HAD to use a few of the Elmer's and X-Acto products. Once he completes his board I will share pictures, he still has a bit of work before it is done.


The kids were bored one day, so we sat down with Halloween themed paper from my stash, ribbon, and the Bzz Kit. They all had a blast making a few cards.

These are only a couple of things that we have done using the products and so far I have not one complaint. These products make everything so easy and a ton of fun!!

You can find all of these wonderful products in a store near you!!

Irritated...

I really don't know why this is still bugging me, but it is. Today while on Facebook, someone posted new pics of some products they were selling. When I was looking at the pics I saw 2 typos in the wording on the shirts. The shirts both said "The Military May Have My Mommy, but I Have His Heart" Can you see the typo in that saying? Being nice I posted a comment under the pictures stating that there was indeed a typo. I didn't think I was rude about it at all or maybe this person just wanted to hide that there was a typo because they fixed the typos and promptly deleted my comments. No Thank You for letting them know or anything.

Like I said this bugged me and I wrote on their wall about how a little note of thanks could have gone a long way. Well they deleted that comment off their wall also. Seriously!! So still being bothered by it, still not sure why, I wrote on my own wall and changed my own status to say that i was deleting them off my list and the reason why. When looking at their page I saw that they had commented back every time someone said something good about a product but had deleted my comments. They even replied to my status and still never said thank you.

Well lesson learned on my part, I will now just let a product picture look like an idiot designed it. I will keep my comments to myself.

The fact is that I don't care that they deleted my comments under the pictures after fixing the typos, but they could have added a comment stating something like Thanks for noticing the typos. I don't care that they deleted my comment off their wall, but again how hard is it to say thank you to someone. Even after I wrote my status to which they replied, they could have very easily said Wow!! not sure what happened to your comment, but I do appreciate and thank you for your help. Instead they wrote something along the lines of I am not going to argue about this and I am not in High School.

Sorry I just had to get this out, maybe it is because my day has not at all gone as planned or something but this whole thing does not sit right with me. This is one place that will never get my business and the sad thing is that the products they offer are some that i would actually purchase.

Thanks for letting me get that out....

Redi Shade!! Review and a Giveaway!!

A few weeks ago I was contacted by the amazing people from Redi Shade. They offered me the chance to review the Simple Fit Shade and for me to offer a giveaway on my blog. I know, AMAZING right? Well I of coarse could not say no to something so awesome.

I followed all the directions on how to measure my window of choice, how to order, and all that good stuff. Shipping was actually quite quick and although I forgot to take a picture, the shade was very protected within the box.

Let me tell you a little bit more about the Simple Fit Shade. I find it easiest to include the Simple Fit Shade Fact Sheet.

I was informed of just how simple it was supposed to be to install the Simple Fit Shade, but I had my doubts. Watch this video, this is how to install the simple fit shade. Looks way too easy..



To my amazement it was actually just that simple!!

Originally I had measured my daughter's window. I wrote down my measurements and still some how got it wrong. But luckily for us the shade fit perfectly in the room where the 2 babies of the family play. I chose the light filtering version as opposed to the black out version as I prefer to have a little light in all rooms.

Here is the video of The Hubbyman installing The Simple Fit Shade.


Before I post the giveaway, I have to say that pressing the trigger button while the shade is not in place will cause the trigger area of the shade to fly across the room. Not that any of you would do that..

Now for the fun part, Who would LOVE to have a Redi Shade Simple Fit Shade? There are a few requirements.
The value of each shade is between $99 and $253, depending upon the size and type. This giveaway is only open to U.S. residents. Your window must meet the following requirements:

Science Fair Time!!

In our School District the Science Fair is mandatory for the 4th graders. Guess What? That means Blake is required to enter the fair. This just reminds me of all the things that have changed since I went to school. I always had the option to do a Science Project but was never required to enter the Science Fair.

All morning we (Blake and I) have been researching on what he wanted to do as his project. Low and Behold he actually made a decision. This is a great thing for him because usually he has a horrible time making any type of decision. I am quite proud of the little big boy right now.

After going to multiple websites we came across one called Science Buddies This is where he found which type of project he wanted to do. Between Life, Earth, and Physical Sciences he chose Physical Science.

After that he chose from a list of projects and his final choice has to do with static electricity!!

I feel this will be a wonderful learning experience for Blake and I will be writing an updated blog for each step of this process. Tomorrow is the day he has to turn in his entry form. We now have it all filled out and ready for him to turn in tomorrow. Next step is for him to turn in his Proposed Hypothesis on the 29th.

Thank You for letting me share this new journey into the Science Fair with you all..

Ultimate Family Vacation!!

Sponsored By


Cheerios® is giving you the chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, your ultimate family vacation. As part of a paid promotion for their “Do What You Love” Sweepstakes, Cheerios® is sponsoring my post today about what my ultimate family vacation would be. Read mine and Enter the Sweepstakes for a chance to actually win your own fantasy family trip or one of a bunch of other great prizes.

Have you ever dreamt about what your Ultimate Family Getaway would be? I know I have!! Different spots, different activities, not to mention a little relaxation thrown in. Through the years and the adding of more kids into the mix as well as the major changes with the Hubbyman have made me rethink a few of my vacation ideas. Instead of wanting to go to some major amusement park where everyone can have fun (well except for hubbyman who would must likely be hiding in a corner somewhere), now I would love to go to a very peaceful place, rent an RV (since we don't have one yet), rent a boat (yup, still don't have one), and set up camp for an amazing 2 weeks. Just because it is camping doesn't mean it is not fun for everyone in the family. We are a family who love the woods, nature, fishing, hiking, and the like.
 
I will be honest before I married the Hubbyman almost 10 years ago I would have never thought I would enjoy camping. Now I absolutely LOVE camping. In fact all 6 of us do. The place doesn't really matter per say except a wooded area by a stream or lake is a must. Not only can you take a nice relaxing family walk through the woods to check all the nature surrounding you, you can also look for all the amazing things to be found on the shore before, after , or even during some fishing fun. And nothing says family fun better than a boat ride out across the beautiful water. Seriously a camping trip can be nothing but relaxing. I would love to be in a spot that during the evening you can look up and see all the beautiful stars, not too mention all the learning by the kids as they try to find different constellations.
 
So my ultimate Family Vacation would be camping for 2 weeks with my whole family and I could never forget to bring the 2 dogs to join the family fun. What would yours be?
 
Don't forget to enter the “Do What You Love” Sweepstakes, for a chance to win your own ultimate family vacation. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.

A Glimpse Into My World

I have quite a few reviews  to post including an awesome review and giveaway from Redi Shade. But for today, right at this moment I need to get a few things out.

Have you ever had one moment in time where all the sudden you are feeling every emotion possible? You are feeling sadness, being nervous, scared, happy, excited, and a little unsure. This is me tonight. I don't know why but today everything is hitting me all at once. There are so many changes happening in my life right now. Don't get me wrong at the end there will be no regrets but this process and all the decisions have been hard and easy all at the same time.

I have posted before about the Hubbyman going from Soldier to Wounded Warrior to getting out of the Army. Never direct but if you read between the lines you will find out who i was talking about. From the first decision to go ahead and start the process to today, they have all come from the heart and what is happening with these decisions will be great for our family, but with each decision brings more questions. Today the Hubbyman had an appt to get a sleep study done, of coarse it has been approved and he will be having his sleep study in about a week. Turns out sleep apnea is quite common in those with PTSD. Hmmm PTSD that is another post of 4 all in itself.

Also within about a week I will be going back to school. Okay not really to school as this program is all online. I have been approved and am now all registered to start a program with Military To Medicine. Not knowing exactly how long we have left being in the Army I chose to do something now instead of having to try to find some type of minimal job once we get where we are going. I was proud of myself but today I am quite nervous as i found I have 3 weeks to finish my first course add that with all the appts for all the kids and Hubbyman, I guess I am sort of getting over whelmed, Yup I will admit it, I am overwhelmed.

The other stuff that is going on is knowing I will be losing this title I have held for quite some time. I will no longer be an Army Wife, nope I will become just the wife. I don't know why but this is hard for me. I have been thinking about this a lot because well scroll to the top and there is the first change that needs to be made. I will have to rename my blog, the blog I started to first just get out the stuff about me and my life ramblings, this in turn became part of me instead of me becoming part of it. I love being able to post things that will interest others. Hopefully you will all continue to join me in the new adventures that will be taking place for my family and I.

Well I am sure I have bored you enough. Thank you for allowing me to throw these crazy posts into the mix. Don't worry I am sure there are more crazy posts coming. I have so much to get out but I also have so many wonderful things to share with everyone. I promise to post the fun and exciting posts with just a few crazy ones like this thrown in.

Fall Brings so many Local opportunities!!



 Today my family went out to a local place with her Brownie Troop!! We went to La Union Corn Maze it was so much fun. The first thing we did was go through the Corn Maze. We thought it was best to get to it first as Dustin would not have done well if it was dark. We gave Natalee control of the map and she had fun taking us in circles. We did end up finding our way back out. LOL

Even though it seemed so busy by the look of the parking lot, once inside everyone was quite spread out.

Being Bullied

I do have reviews and giveaways to post but I just had to step back and look into something else today.  That would be Bullying or being Bullied.

When I made the decision to allow my oldest 2 to go to school in a regular setting, it was a decision that I took to heart. The transition has not been pleasant at all times, in fact more than a handful of times have the kids asked to come back home. I have not gotten to that point yet, but goodness I am soooo close. I will tell you why.

My 7 year old has switch from a second grade classroom to a first grade classroom. Academically this has been wonderful for her, socially not so much. In the first classroom the teacher made it clear she was "that" child, you know "a homeschooled kid" crazy right? So a few kids started teasing her about being homeschooled. She took that teasing episode with grace and simply said "Oh being homeschooled was great!!" "We went to San Antonio for 2 weeks and went on field trips and we went to Ceder Point for a day and it was a field trip!" The kids stopped because they found out how neat being homeschooled was.

Now this first grade classroom has a few bad apples. My daughter has been called names and had things said to her that I wish I could take back. She wears glasses so yes some of it comes from that. I have watched my daughter go from loving school to not wanting to go back, I have had to answer her when she asks me if she is ugly, fat  (she is a bean pole), stupid, dumb, and the list goes on. I have been to the school numerous times and have talked to the people I need to talk to. Today I get to do that again because she came home yesterday and said that the teacher does not like tattle tails. Seriously? I just can't understand why the teacher would consider this tattle tailing if it is the same child that my daughter is referring to.

I was sent a link to another Blog Post on Facebook. I went and read it. It is well written and I want to share it with you. Single Dad Laughing has many wonderfully written posts but this one inparticular went straight to my heart as I am dealing with this with my oldest 2 right now. Memoirs Of A Bullied Kid It is long but well worth it!!

I would love to hear from anyone who was a Bully or was Bullied. Please leave me a comment with your story. I would also like any ideas about how to help my children get past this bullying and come out a better person in the end.

CSN Stores!! Maybe even a Giveaway!!

By now I am sure most of you have heard of this amazing site. I have worked with them twice before and now get the chance to work with them again.

I love getting on to csnstores.com and day dreaming about all the neat stuff that I can finally get once we get our own house. One of the things I would love to have is an Upholstered Headboards and I know they would go perfect in my children's rooms. I just love of the different looks that you can make yourself instead of the standard wooden or metal head boards. They even have some that have a slip cover, much easier to take off and wash or switch up the decor.
Here are a few of my favorites:

This one sells for $146!!


That one is most definitely on my list for after we move.

For $149  the next one on my list would go perfectly with the new theme my oldest has picked out. He found out that he gets to go hunting after his next birthday and that is all he has talked about since.


Seriously I get more excited when looking at everything at all the 200+ stores that CSN has to offer. Now that i can look and actually choose things that will one day be in my own house.

With a few Holidays coming up soon CSN Stores has once again gotten ahold of me to offer my readers something special!!

I know you all would LOVE to find out just what they offered for you to win.........
