October Goals

It is goal time again already! To recap on last months goals...

*I brought the food budget from $175 to $133! Huge step but I will still work on tweeking it.
*I have thought of a couple of handmade gifts that I can make this year that are brand new and will most likely end up in my shop as well.
*I have been building up the listings in my shop and it has resulted in sales, YAY! I started the holiday bootcamp and even got in a new item, the super hero roll!

So now it is time to come up with my goals for October. It is a big month! Starting on October 1st, I will be a stay at home mom. That is a huge goal that is finally being accomplished. So here are the goals for the month...

* Work on a new daily routine that works with all of our new schedules. The new routine will include a sleep schedule, now that we can have one, and time for exercise and devotions.

*Have more quality family time. With our crazy combination of schedules over and more sleep to be had, we don't need to plop in front of the TV at the end of the day because we are too tired to do anything else. I am going to be coming up with a list of activity ideas so that when we say "what should we do tonight" there will be somewhere to go for ideas. I will make sure to share my list on here too so we can all have new ideas.

*Beside working hard on the Etsy holiday bootcamp, I want to get to 100 listings this month and then maintain that number. I have had a hard time growing my stock this month since my listings were being purchased as fast as I was listing them. So I want to get it up and keep it at that amount, minimum, for the whole holiday season.

So those are my 3 main focuses for the month plus my monthly planner pages. What are your plans for the month?

I like this idea of monthly goals!

I think I will work on cutting down our grocery budget too! And possibly start work on Holiday projects!!!

Just got my check for $500.

Many times people don't believe me when I tell them about how much money you can get by taking paid surveys from home...

So I took a video of myself getting paid over $500 for doing paid surveys.

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
