Wow where did the years go?

I know I posted something like this before, but today it seem so real.  Where did all the years go? 

Oldest Wolf Daughter left the doors for college.   Wow, I remember just a few years ago she was so tiny they were taking her out of my arms and flying her to another hospital. I cried then and I cried today.  

I am sad to see her go. But, happy to see her spread her wings and go see other things.    

Good luck Wolf Daughter, remember we are here for you.  Love you tons.

I get ask these question alot about homeschooling.

Now that oldest wolf daughter has finish school, I been ask these question alot.  

How did you do?   Well she was a joy to teach and it was fun. We all were learning at the same time. 

Did they drive you nuts being with them all the time  24/7,  I look forward to when school starts up again.   Well that is two part question.  On the first part NO she didn't drive me nuts.  She is my daughter I enjoyed watching her grow and learn with me there.  I enjoyed the laughs, tears, scream and fun time we had together.    Second part to this question: I never look forward to her going she is so much fun.   I guess we all are different.

Now this question is the one I get ask alot I have a two year old who is smart, what books do I get for him/her to start school?  My thought on this one I know alot of you wouldn't like but hey we all have our opinions..   Everyone's kid is smart in one way or another.  I have never meet a dumb kid.  I have meet kids that can do something different then other kids but that don't make them smarter then another kid.  Remember God made us all different and we all do something different and better in our own way.   About the books I would never waste any money on a child till they are of school age.  First of all kids need to be kids.  We need to let them use there imagination and there toys.   One of the things you can do is READ and Read some more.  Children learn alot from being read too.   If you still want them to work on paper there is so many website out there for free preschool down loads.   Or go to the dollar tree they have tons of little preschool books for them to work with.   But, my big thing is let them be kids, they will have plenty of time to school. Don't burn them out before they start.  They have 13 years of school ahead of them.

Differnet in each State!

Traveling through the different states I notice a big different of those who care and those who don't. 

I always told Daddy Wolf you don't have to be rich to pick up your trash and put it in a bag and put it out for the garbage man to come and get it.  I know it takes a little work but it doesn't cost money. 

I don't look at people for what they wear, what they drive, or what they live in.  I don't think that makes a person one way or another. I look to see how clean they are. If they shower and take care of the things that are important to them.  

Believe me in our days of traveling I meet alot of neat and wonderful people.  Some were rich others weren't but I didn't favor them over the other.  

Florida,  was a very pretty state the landscaping was out of this world. The flowers and trees were so pretty and there never any trash on the side of the road.   I know they are tourist state but they do keep it up.   Still to hot for me down there. 

Just wish the other states would take a little more pride in there states. I knew it cost money but I notice in  Florida they had there prisoners out there doing that work.  Lets give them work too. Let  them pay room and board like the rest of us do.

Disney World, Universal, Busch Gardens, Sea World in FL

I know its been along time since I posted but so much has been going on here at Wolf Bay High. 

We got through the graduation party and had a great time.   Oldest Wolf Daughter had a great time and the turn out was great.  We were so happy for her.   She was a great student and will miss her.

Then off to FL. we went for two weeks.  We spent along time at Disney World.  So, much to see and do and the rides and all.  What a great time we had there. The shows are great.

 Then off to Universal Studios we went to the Harry Potter World.  Wow!  what a great time we had there.  The  Butter Beer was great.   We had four of them.  Now Baby Wolf wants me to look for the recipe and make them at home. But, you know how it is never the same when you make it.   The ride through the school and all was great.  
Was alot smaller world then I thought. But, we enjoyed our self. 

Then we went to Sea World  enjoyed all the wonderful shows they have there. The Wolf Daughters,  loved the water rides.  Went on them several times.  It was very hot while we were there so they stayed cool. 

Then off to Busch Gardens the Wolf Daughters, loved the roller coaster rides there and all the animals. The shows were great too. 

It was a very busy two weeks with all the parks but we had a wonderful time and made some great memories. 

Now, its time to come go and rest from the vacation and get back to life again.

Darn Red Ants!

Well today is Friday.  Time to get the lawn mower out and mow the lawn and do the trimming. I like to do it early in the morning before it gets so darn hot in down here. 

So out came the good ole lawn mower. Away I went to mowing away.  Got that done then did the trimming some of the trimming I have to do by hand because I don't like the trimmer in my flower garden. 

I was trimming and pulling weeds around the flowers and listening to my music and watching my little puppy so he wouldn't run  out in the road.  

I pulled some weeds around a flower and I got more then what I wanted.  I found these little guys and gals in a great big pile.. 

Yes, a nice pile of red ants.  They built a whole town.  I think they were adding new play ground ground or something. There was alot of them.  My hand was covered before I knew what I got into. Now my hand looks like this. 

Feels like my hand is on fire.   Been putting alot of stuff on them. Getting better by the hour.  I was so mad at the ants I pulled the whole plant out and spray the area so well.  Wow those babies sure are small but sure can bite.

I don't like shopping but when I can save I love it!

Went to the store today to do some shopping. I am one to go in get what you need and leave that place. It takes enough of my money.  If I look around to long I think I need something, then bingo its in my cart and I am buying something I don't know if we will eat or use it. But, at the time it looked good and sound good.

Well with money being tight and prices going up. I been hunting down coupons like a man hunts a deer.  I been doing really good about planning a menu for a week then getting on computer to look for coupons to make the recipe. I also find a lot coupons in the Sunday papers. 

I am still working on getting great deals. I am not one to go from store to store to get this one for this price because it was cheaper.  But, I might end up being one soon if prices keep going up. 

Anyone living in the South knows we don't have that many stores to do our food shopping in. 
Not like up North they have tons of stores and they even double coupons.  Down here I haven't found a store that would double a coupon. 

Anyway today I went to go old Walmart.  Yea, like I said in the South we only have Wal mart or HEB not a whole lot. Well we have CVS and Walgreens but I don't really call them places to go find food, but I heard they are getting better might have to try them.  Yes, we also have Sam's but they don't take coupons so don't count them. That's it for stores for us. 

Any way back on track again. Went to wal mart hand the lady my coupons she goes wow that's alot. I said yes. I had a total of 45 coupons.   My total before coupons was $101.93 after the coupons got it down to $64.95   not a great saving but I am trying.   

So, keep hunting for those coupons. To me its like finding a penny on the ground but worth more.

My Kinda Guy!

One day I had lunch with some friends. Jim, a short, balding golfer type about 80 years old, came along with them---all in all, a pleasant bunch.

When the menus were presented, we ordered salads, sandwiches, and soups, except for Jim who said, "Ice Cream, please. Two scoops, chocolate.

I wasn't sure my ears heard right, and the others were aghast. "Along with heated apple pie," Jim added, completely unabashed.

We tried to act quite nonchalant, as if people did this all the time.. But when our orders were brought out, I didn't enjoy mine.

I couldn't take my eyes off Jim as his pie a-la-mode went down. The other guys couldn't believe it. They ate their lunches silently and grinned.

The next time I went out to eat, I called and invited Jim. I lunched on white meat tuna.. He ordered a parfait.
I smiled. He asked if he amused me
I answered, "Yes, you do, but also you confuse me.

How come you order rich desserts, while I feel I must be sensible? He laughed and said "I'm tasting all that is possible".

I try to eat the food I need, and do the things I should. But life's so short, my friend, I hate missing out on something good.

This year I realized how old I was. (He grinned) I haven't been this old before."
"So, before I die, I've got to try those things that for years I had ignored.
I haven't smelled all the flowers yet. There are too many trout streams I haven't fished. There's more fudge sundaes to wolf down and kites to be flown overhead.

There are too many golf courses I haven't played. I've not laughed at all the jokes. I've missed a lot of sporting events and potato chips and cokes.

I want to wade again in water and feel ocean spray on my face. I want to sit in a country  Temple once more and thank God for His grace.

I want peanut butter every day spread on my morning toast. I want un-timed long distance calls to the folks I love the most.

I haven't cried at all the movies yet, or walked in the morning rain. I need to feel wind on my face. I want to be in love again.

So, if I choose to have dessert, instead of having dinner, then should I die before night fall, I'd say I died a winner, because I missed out on nothing. I filled my heart's desire. I had that final chocolate mousse before my life expired.."

With that, I called the waitress over.. "I've changed my mind, " I said. "I want what he is having, only add some more whipped cream!"

This is my gift to you - We need an annual Friends Day! If  you get this twice, then you have more than one friend. Live well, love much & laugh often - Be happy.  

SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS including me if I'm lucky enough to be counted among them.

Be mindful that happiness isn't based on possessions, power, or prestige, but on relationships with people we like and respect. Remember that while money talks,  CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM SINGS!

Lazy Sunday!

After a busy and wonderful day Saturday. We took the day off and just played lazy in the hot summer sun.  Tons of wind but hey that makes it bearable to go outside in.  Doesn't do good for your hair do but, I guess we can't have everything. 

On Saturday we had a graduation party for Oldest Wolf Daughter. Great turn out. Cake was great. Everyone had a great time. They were all hot and tired when we got done. But, it was a great day for Oldest Wolf Daughter.  Now its off to college.   I did think of one thing, my Grandma told me years ago. Once they start school time goes fast.  She was right.   Going to miss her around.
