Jack's Last Day of School

Jack finished his first year of school last Wednesday!

We decided last summer that we thought it would be good for Jack, and for Mommy for him to do Preschool. Just a few hours a day, three times a week to get out of the house, meet other kiddos and not have to fight for Mommy's attention with the little guys and spend some time learning. 
We chose to send him to a private Christian school (same one I went to) and we are so glad we did.

Having just turned 3, only three weeks before the cut-off we recognized that this was more of a "throw away" year, and it was about having fun and making friends and knew all along we'd do the Preschool year twice. We want him to not be the youngest in school ( I strongly believe this is important especially for boys to be older!!!)

He really loved school and his teacher and made some wonderful friends.
He learned so much and by the end of the year we were told he definitely was ready for Pre-Kindergarten. We knew we had a smart cookie, but decided to still do Preschool again next year to give him that extra edge of being even more confident in himself!

We plan on again sending him to this same private Christian school.
We feel that homeschooling is not the route we should take, and the same goes for public school and we continue to pray that God provides the tuition to send our kids here.
Small classes, teachers who reinforce what we are teaching our kids at home, and who pray for our win.

The pictures are adorable, but I don't have permission to post of the other kiddos so you will only see Jack.
He really only wanted to say goodbye to Alice :) 
You can see her long brown hair in the pictures....just like Mommy's :)

They performed their favorite songs and poems for us.

And had a few of the girlies take pics with him.
Heartbreaker at age 3...

Jack and his teacher, whom he loved

Jack's favorite aide. He was her favorite too...she got him a Star Wars pen :)

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
