Learning New Tricks

I decided recently that I wanted to try building a website for DYGC. I have been learning WordPress for work--but I have a long way to go till I am confident. I need to learn more than how to add content and keep up the blog. 

I had already purchased the DYGC domain awhile back, but blogger doesn't allow any flexibility to make changes to the template, etc.  I started with this template/website builder from GoDaddy. You choose a template but then can put your own stamp on it. I am not in love with it, but I have already learned so much from just playing.

The blogspot space won't go away for now. I don't know how long I will want to keep this up and running. I can track who reads this little blog and I know it is very few. I don't have dreams of making a living through this, I just love being able to look back at my pictures and read what we did, from anywhere. This blog has been so soothing for me.

Hope everyone is having a good week!

Hugs,

Nora

Cardboard arcade

After the soccer game on Saturday, we went out for a cold treat. It was 95 degrees and that made the 1 p.m. game at a park with no shade (sounds like a sad park, yes?) a jolly good time, Nope! The Vikings tied! They played a great game.
We got home and had thirty minutes before we left to head to the school for Mission's Annual Global Day of Play. We participated in 2013, but we missed it last year. This year we were back with a disc golf game! Learn more about Caine's arcade here.





The "claw" and pool games were very popular!
We had a good time--although we were really ready to enjoy some air conditioning. We got home and watched Monsterville: Cabinet of Souls. We all really enjoyed it!

Furbee Fun

I don't remember how Casey heard about the Furbee toy, but for about two weeks, it is all we have heard about.  They were delivered last night and the boys love them. Casey had to do a lot of extra chores to earn the money to buy his new friend. Erik had money saved, so he decided to purchase one as well. 

When Casey wants something, he draws a ton of pictures of it! 
Yep, there's an App for that. 
They dance to music and say funny phrases. They are funny little toys. I like these funny little guys. Kind of glad we have them.

It is BOO time!

Start spreading some Halloween magic in your neighborhood! Buy some Halloween treats and place them on your neighbors doorsteps! Shh...don't tell them it was you!

Check out this Boo post from 2011. They were so small. Sigh.
What is Boo-ing?   

It's a Halloween take on "Secret Santa": All you do is secretly leavie small gift bags or BOO baskets, a BOO poem, BOO instructions and a BOO sign at a neighbor's door.
In turn, the neighbor is asked to BOO two others, leading to a chain reaction--and Halloween fun.

To start a BOO, use this free printable BOO kit. It is a one-page poem/instructions sheet, and three different BOO signs to make it easy to start a BOO in your neighborhood.

Print a few copies of the BOO poem and your favorite BOO sign. Add them to a small gift basket, then deliver the BOOs secretly to a friend's doorstep--and watch the BOO signs multiply.
Ready? Set? BOO! Spread some fun today!

No matter what, you will always belong here
