I care about Jesus cause he is my man

We received Launa's writing book now that are nearing the end of the year.  The teacher put a line or a square or something small and asks the kids to use their imagination to draw a picture and write a sentence to go with it.  This one was my favorite. 

I mean it's so cute! If you can't decipher first grade phonetics then read the name of my post again.

Salsa fest

We attended the Salsa Fest a couple of weeks ago here in Phoenix and it was a good time.  Much better than BBQ fest.  The weather was perfectly 80s and sunny but a bit windy.  We arrived right after the 10 am opening and the place was divided between sample booths and purchase stands.

We obtained our sampling tray complete with holes for carrying the salsa samples you grab from one of at least 50 stands I'm guessing.  Of course small chip bags were around for free. 

It didn't take long to load up. 

We walked and sampled and margarita'd for awhile until we hit the kids section. 

This was $2 per kid but there were four jumping things set up plus a rock wall and it was UNLIMITED time so eventually one parent was there monitoring while the other got more samples (me) or margaritas (him).  We stayed here for over an hour until the kids were so red it looked like a heat stroke was coming. 

It was a fun time and the best fest yet since we have been sampling them! 
The kids got along great too!

Oil Pulling

I saw the black charcoal teeth whitening thing on Facebook the other day and was about to try it when I found out that the coconut oil I'm now using as body lotion (yes's doing wonders for my eczema) and a hair conditioner (shines and strengthens) may also help with my smile! 

I have read up on oil pulling and gave it a whirl tonight.  One tablespoon 

And twenty minutes of swishing the it back and forth between my teeth (not gargling like mouthwash)

And wallah my teeth feel shiny and clean even without brushing. 
Not to mention piling is supposed to detoxify your body, help more with eczema, sinusitis, energy, and tons of other benefits.  I'm going to stick it out for a bit and will let you know how it goes or what I notice.  

Helpful hint: don't spit it down the drain after you're done, it can harden and hurt your plumbing.  Oh you can cook with it too!  I haven't even done that yet! 

Any readers ever tried this? What did you notice was improved or not changed at all.
