I always make my menu plan for 8 servings, and so we had enough leftover to make a couple of lunches for my husband to take to work, as well as probably enough for the kids to have for lunch, on bread instead of sub rolls.

I am able to do this because I have a premium membership to a WONDERFUL place, called My Freezeasy. Go check it out, you will NOT be sorry! My family is LOVING this! If you’d like to join, please use my affiliate link.

A Day With The Horses!

The Puzzler spent some time with a friend from our church this past weekend, who happens to own some horses. He was SO looking forward to it, too! Of course, he didn’t realize until our friend picked him up, that he was going to get the FULL experience, LOL!

First, cleaning up after the horses!

And now, the reward, riding Will . . .

Recovering . . .

A few weeks ago, on September 26, I had a total knee replacement. I was supposed to have surgery on Tuesday and come home on either Thursday or Friday. Unfortunately, my blood pressure kept bottoming out, causing me to pass out when the Physical Therapist would get me up to walk, and I ended up in ICU, followed by going to a Rehab Facility instead of home. 😦  Well, I’m home now, and working on recovery.

Here are my extra legs for the time being . . .

And here is my comforter when I’m resting on the couch . . .

Isn’t he just the cutest?

Ultra Safe Safety Scissors & The Pencil grip 3 Step Training Kit: Our Review

 

Because I have a son (“The Batman”) who has long struggles with handwriting and printing, I was very pleased to be given for the purpose of this review The 3 Step Pencil Grip Training Kit .  We also received the The Ultra Safe Safety Scissors.  Both product were sent to us from The Pencil Grip, Inc. and I think both products are wonderful for either young children, or those with poor motor control, such as my son.

 

 

“The Batman really felt more confident while using the pencil grips. He much preferred the green grip, meant for beginners. He felt that this was the easiest for him.  Here is the order in which they are used for training:

3 Steps For the Best Results In Training

  • The Crossover Grip for Training
  • The Pinch Grip for Transitioning
  • The Pencil Grip for the final step!

The 3 Step Training Kit contains three different grips. For beginners, we have the crossover grip, which has wings to keep the fingers from crossing over, promoting a proper grip. Next, we have the pinch grip, which gives some structure while allowing a little bit of freedom at the same time. Finally, there is the pencil grip, which gives comfort, control, and can be continued as an extended use tool. One thing I really like is something that makes the pencil grips easier for children to use. there is an L and an R on the grips. These are to show your child where to put his or her thumb, based upon whether the child is right-handed or left-handed. This is a very nice, thoughtful touch.

The Ultra Safe Safety Scissors really are just that! They are not dull at all, but they are made with a shield (which you can see in the above picture). This safety shield protects your child from being able to get his or her fingers in between the blades, which I find a good thing, as it prevents those cut fingers which we see often with regular sharp scissors! They are easy to open and close, partly because of the little yellow lever you see above. The handles have a nice fit. Even I tried them, and it was very comfortable for me to fit my fingers into the spaces.

The only thing we found bothersome is that while yes, the protective shield DOES protect little fingers, it also makes it hard to get a clean-cut, if a beginner or someone with poor fine motor control is trying to use them. At the same time, I love that there is a permanent shield. The shield is not going to come off. That is helpful when you have (as we have) one child who has misused scissors frequently.

Here is “The Batman” using the 3 Step Training Kit and the Ultra safe safety scissors:
