Wow, things have changed a lot since my last post

Xoe is 7 years old now, we still live in Richmond, CA, and she still goes to the same school.

What’s changed is we started a YouTube channel where we make videos and post them to YouTube.  YouTube pays you for advertising on your videos, so we make money when someone watches our videos, so by all means, please visit our YouTube channel.

Our videos start off with just regular home video clips, but our YouTube channel is evolving so now we have videos of Xoe teaching sight words to K-3rd grade, and the kids love learning from another kid.  Lots of my friend’s grandchildren and children watch the sight words series.

Board games, we teach sportsmanship while playing board games.  We have fun and our audience learns how to play a board game.

Xoe does toy reviews, she loves reviewing toys.

Remember to LIKE & SUBSCRIBE, drop us a line and we will get back with you, I hope you enjoy.



10/14/2013 Xoe and I Went to 6 Flags Discovery Kingdom, Vallejo, CA

Yesterday we were sitting here wondering what to do because I was kind of short on cash and I really had no ideas.  We decided to surf the net and found that there is a Theme Park, 6 Flags Discovery Kingdom that is just about 30 minutes away from Richmond CA, in Vallejo, CA.  They have tickets that you can pay for by the month for about $9 plus we bought meal cards to where we could eat lunch and dinner at the park for about the same price, it was a bargain.  We only spent $3 at the park and that was for a drink refill.  I thought they would be open today but it’s a holiday and they are closed.  

Here is a picture of Xoe waiting for the bus to get into the park.  Image


And these are pictures of Xoe with some of the characters  





We had a great day!




It’s a sad day at preschool today.  I haven’t updated the blog in a while so for those of you who haven’t heard, I have enrolled Xoe into the Booker T Anderson Community Center preschool program called, Little Einstein.  This is a picture of Xoe walking into her first day of preschool, and her preschool.  Image  Image

Anyway, the school has stopped accepting 3 year olds, so Xoe is going to lose 2 classmates.  The preschool is also going to start closing at 1:30 which means it is one half hour less each day.

Xoe was sad, the mother’s were sad, the children who were under 3 were sad, and even the teacher was sad to see the changes.

It’s a terrific program, runs from 11am-1:30pm and every day the kids learn something new and exciting, and really enjoy going to class.  The class size is 5 children, so they each get a lot of individual attention.  They are working on their letters, numbers, colors, and shapes.  They have an exercise class each day, and I would recommend this program highly to anyone with small children.


08/24/2013 Rearranging my File Box, IHOP, and Swimming

I haven’t posted in a few days, I have been pretty busy doing things like clearing out my file box and other little chores that I have been putting off for years.  I decided to replace my file boxes because they broke in transit out here.  The USPS broke a lot of my stuff and tore up moving boxes when I moved out here.  Here is an example of what happened to the 14 boxes I mailed out here, and of the 14 boxes 9 were like this.  Image

I didn’t get an apology,  because the boxes were uninsured there was little I could do.

Anyway, I bought notebooks and plastic sheet protectors to hold my important papers and keep them clean.  The notebooks have zippers on them, a handle to carry them and a shoulder strap if needed.  I love these notebooks as file boxes.  My papers are very easy to find and file.   Image Image  They are called Case It File Folders and the website to buy is either at Target where I got mine, or the Case It website at http://www.caseit.com

While we were at Target Xoe played in the Target circle outside Target. Image  Xoe loves to play on the big red balls and the circle sculpture at Target.

After Target and rearranging my file box, we went to lunch at IHOP with Xoe’s doll Jack.  Yep, she named her baby girl Jack.  We went to the IHOP on San Pablo Road, in El Cerrito, CA, the food there is fantastic.  Xoe always orders the French Toast and Sausage, and I have been ordering the Country Fried Steak and Eggs.  Here are a couple of pictures of Xoe and Jack while we were waiting on the food.




After Lunch Xoe had a swim lesson, her second to last swim lesson.  She is swimming much better than when she started the class.  This is a picture of Xoe practicing her kicking at the wall of the pool.  Image
