Photograph taken by sjlocke May is a bittersweet month for many parents. Whether you homeschool or your children attend public or private school, the day that they graduate will be a memory you will never forget.

Yes, they are no longer little babies, but growing young adults. This newsletter will be full of great tips and ideas on how to make this the most special and memorable day for them. If you are looking for some great ideas, be sure and check out my May Digest as it contains tons of great information on "cents"ible celebrations.You can also check out this past newsletter about graduates as well.

I had the joy of checking out a bunch of her giveaways. I also love her truthful nature when she is sharing her heart. This post on mothers was especially good.
Drop by her blog and leave a note letting her know that I sent you over! She would love to hear from you.

I'd Like To Hear From You
|I'm wrapping up July's Digest which is all about "Summer Fun From A to Z."
I'd love to include a little section featuring our readers' favorite summer
memories. Do you have anything to share? It can be from your childhood days,
or something more recent. Maybe it's a trip to your county fair, lying
outside to watch the stars, a special family reunion, or the smell of
burgers on your backyard grill. |
If there's a special memory of a taste,
smell, sight, sound or feeling of summer that you'd be willing to share, I'd
love to hear about it. Email me in the next couple of
days if you want to be included! Thanks so much.
Hey, I Can Make That!

One of my favorite memories of graduation was my memory book. My mother purchased mine through the local school product catalog, but what if you could make your own for that graduating child of yours?
I found a great tutorial on Scrapbooking.com that offers step-by-step instructions and tips on creating the perfect memory book.

Cook it during the day while you work and be ready that night to the
party once you get home! Chicken thighs and drumsticks are some of the
cheapest cuts of chicken at my local grocery store, sometimes as low as
$.59/lb. The onion soup mix I have at home appears to be gluten-free,
