#1 Thanks for all the nice feedback. Begonia - your reading group sounds wonderful! So many kids could benefit from that sort of concept. my husband is restricted by the Calif. standards, which can be a pain in the neck & I don't think the kids are any smarter somehow. He has kids with special needs reading text books that would have been advanced for me in high school. As I recall in 6th grade we were memorizing rivers and lists of products from countries! And this is still considering that so many kids here are Eng. language learners....for them it's vocabulary in all their courses, which the teachers don't get. My brother, Rick Munro has had great success in Bakersfield in history with lots of emphasis on TERMS...& as for most language learning - ugh!!
#2 CARMEX has made me part of their blog squad!! & they sent me a very nice packages of all their new products, as they are developing the brand beyond the lip balms we know....
They even have a tinted lip ultra hydrating lip balm - which I really like - very moisturizing. (Altho the colors are very muted - great for growing girls, I would think.) And the new healing cream is also a winner....I use it to moisturize my hands & it actually works very well - better than 95% of the other creams I have used....
#3 A GIVEAWAY!!!!
Carmex is nice enough to sponsor a giveaway for my readers - Do you hear that out there???Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org before 11/14 - with CARMEX in the heading with your name & address & I will put your names in a hat & send the winner off to Carmex & THEY will send off some Carmex product(s) to you!!
I don't normally do this - but occasionally being a blogger has its benefits! We will see how it goes. Life continues to be an adventure.
