Sadly today was our last day with Kindness as our Fruitage of the Spirit and song 77 as our Fruitage of the Spirit song... it was bittersweet. lol We love our daily focus on each Fruitage of the Spirit. Tomorrow will bring a new one.
We also chose to do the Books of the Bible song twice today, as it is also the last day for that song for this school year too. Tomorrow will bring a new monthly opening song.

I finally was able to get to Barnes and Noble and get new book marks. I love my little Kawaii Toaster bookmark, too cute! Stamps and now new cute book marks too! Awesome.
Also note worthy, Barnes and Noble has a 20 percent discount teachers card, but it is not on coupons and/or sales. Still saved me a dollar per pack of book marks! So very worth signing up for. They do allow homeschool mom's to sign up for this card as teachers as well. Some of the clerks will take your word for it, and others will ask for proof. They however do not seem to expire. Where Joann's is the same as far as some clerks will ask for your proof of being a homeschooling mom and/or teacher ID, and others will not. BUT, again take note, that Joann's discount card for teachers expires every August and you will have to either get a clerk who takes your word for it when you sign up for your new one, or bring in proof you are a homeschool teacher every August.

At the beginning of the year I was using stickers to decorate my planning pages with. But, eventually all the stickers made the pages bumpy and hard to write on. So I tried stamps but they bled through, making my OCD of clean pages go nuts. So recently I watched a planning vlog that claimed chalk ink pads did not bleed through. So I ran to Joann's which gives a 15 percent teacher discount on top of coupons and other discounts, and homeschool moms are considered teachers! So yeah! I bought them, tried them out, and they do NOT bleed through! I am so so happy about this! I love decorating my planner! And I can again!
