Here is the after shot of my "roadside" highchair. I don't have a before, but it was worn and weathered. I love the end result. I spray primed in red, put candle wax all over in random spots (then sanded after final coat), then finished in a dry brushed coat of yellow. Beautiful! It looks awesome with the pail and plants, I'll have to get a picture of that too.

The photos are not the best, I'm having a terrible time with my new camera and uploading to blogger. I had to resize the pictures, so they would download, but now you can hardly see them. Any tips?

Gmail offers free text messaging with an email account. For complete instructions click here. The first time you send a text message it will show that you have 50 messages remaining, but when you receive a reply you accrue five messages. If for some reason you were to use all your messages you could text your own phone and reply to get five more messages. If the person you are texting does not have a texting plan on their phone they will be charged for the message, so please check with them before you send the first one.

I do not have text messaging on my current cell phone plan, so in a pinch this has been a blessing!

I have been homeschooling for five years and have often used resources from Currclick.com, including their many free weekly resources on every subject from flight to spring. We have taken online courses which were great and done countless lapbooks using their products. Check out this week's free resource on butterflies. It is very timely for us as we took advantage of Friday's free day at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, GA and visited the butterfly garden and attended the butterfly class. Enjoy!
