Webkinz and Rataoullie




Well our summer is starting off with a bang...

All Roo wanted for passing was another Webkinz..Yes she is like most kids in her school addicted to the craze- so far she had one lil cocker spaniel and now she owns a goggle. When we hit the Hallmark store yesterday it was hard for her to decide which one she wanted to own, but she loved the uniqueness of the character. Roo's house is becoming a mega mansion after she won some major webkin cash yesterday--she won 25,000 so now her house is a 10 room one all with thier own themes. My lil girl loves to virtual shop! She also loves the games...Mom loves the safety of the site! The thing I love about the KDZchat is that it is all pretyped!! You cant give away personal INFO! To get to where you can you have to have your parents unlock that ablity..for me that adds a wee bit of security, unlike Club penguin where kids can type what they want. I am liking Webkinz much more then the other these days, and it is cheap too so even this single mom can let my daughter have fun.

After shopping for her well earned Webkinz we headed to the food court for lunch, tacos! Then we hit the movie theatre...I can't believe how EXPENSIVE the movie theatre is getting! Well we got to Rataullie.......Disney's new summer movie. Roo says "It was awesome". I thought it was good! If you are looking for a fun movie it is one to see! It even had this jadded mom laughing.

Well today is the first day of what I hope to be a relaxing weekend, so hope you all enjoy yours!

So much happening it is hard to blog

Wow! Hard to believe that a month has gone by and no blogging! It has been a hard month but a good month too!

So let me catch you all up and share the lessons of the month...

Lesson 1 -- Set your priorites right! My month has been about what is important. Roo has been my priority and with the last month of school there was much that needed attention and I was so happy to be there for all of it! From the hopthon, class trip, class parties and all the things that come with it being almost summer holidays( which for us start in about an hr).

My family has been my other priority--just trying to be there for my sister who's teen daughter has run away from home twice this month..right now Kim isnt at home. Please include her in your prayers if you would ..she is 16 and well thinks she knows best.

Lesson 2--Have lots of fun and we have had that! The hopothon was very fun, dancing with 600 kids was a blast. Saw Shrek the 3rd, played Life lots, went garage saleing ( you know how much I love a bargin we got Roo some games and puzzles for like a dime each!) ,went to a baseball tournament, have been at the park in the eveing and we are watching Pirate Master and So You Thought You Could Dance together. We have also picked out our summer novels! Woo Hoo! We also went to Luminato( an arts festival that was held here in Toronto--it was too much fun!) Roo and I both got our faces painted, we took in a Salsa lesson were Roo ended up star of the show, and even the mayor of Toronto was compliemting my dear daughter-it really has been a FULL joyfilled month.

Lesson 3--Old friends are not far from our heart. This week I have been able to reconnect with my best friend from elementary school! I attended David Livingstone in Brandon MB and well Carolyn was my friend and neighbour. Last night we had a great conversation and it was simply the best to reconnect!

Well let summer vacation begin! I better go and get her and hopefully I will back back into my blog more...hope you all are simply enjoying your families!
