How is it going, dear readers?

  I figured it has been a few weeks since my last hey, how you doing post, so that is what I’m here to do today.

Ultimate Phonics Reading Program (Spencer Learning) {Review}

We have had no technical issues to remark of.

**Sony Home Video provided me with some of the materials I used in this Blog Post/Giveaway. The opinions I share are my own.**  We are not much of a live television family, however we do love our DVDs and especially children’s movies. Last week we added a new fairy tale to our selection. My Princess could not be more thrilled, and AppleBlossom the superhero girl is delighted as well. Goodness, even the Rascal and Enginerd enjoyed watching this one!

Done for the night. Started her skin 1×1 (28 count Laguna) and I’m realizing the next stitch on her arms is meant to be a blended stitch.
