A Tutorial for Google Reader

After talking to many people that continue to go to each blog they normally read and asking how I keep up with so much I thought I would do a tutorial on using Google Reader.  By using google reader you simply log in and read all the newest blog posts on your favorite blogs without the time it takes to visit each individual blog address.  
So here is what Google looks like.  You will need to click on the more tab at the top.  Drop down and select Reader.  At this point you have to have a google sign in.  If you don't then create one.  
Now click on subscribe.  Then type in your favorite blog (like Perfectlycrazylife) in the box.  
After that you will see that many pull up just scroll down until you find the one that you want to subscribe to.

Now that you found the right one click on it then click subscribe.

Now you can see all your blogs on the left hand side as you add them.

Here is all the blogs I have added.  You will see the blog titles on the left and little snippets of them on the right.  Simply click on the blog you want to read and it shows up in the right hand side.

I hope this helps you!

I have so many ideas I would like to blog about.  I just can't seem to find the time.  I'm so far behind now.  There's always next year to catch up!  Here's a few recent family pictures.

Summer Pictures

 I try not to let too much time get by without capturing some pictures.  Children grow up so fast.  Our days are so filled with meeting needs for everyone that before I know it I realize that it's been way too long since I picked up the camera.  This summer has been going by fast.  Birthday season has already started.  Taylor turned 8 in June.  Tal III is turning 10 tomorrow!  Wow!  Sometimes I can't believe it was 10 years ago when I became a mommy.  Then my birthday.  Abigail turns 2 in August.  Then I celebrate 12 years with my husband!  What a wonderful 12 years it has been.  Last Anna turns 4 in September.  Tal is the odd man out with a winter birthday.  We've been enjoying a nice, busy summer filled with swimming, school, football camp for the boys and meeting up with friends.  I hope you are enjoying your summer!

Preschool plans

For Preschool in our house I use Little Hands to Heaven.  I bought this many years ago.  It's a great, simple program.  It's great to give your little ones some special mom-attention.  I use the New Bible in Pictures for Little Eyes and My ABC  Bible Verses with it.  I also use Playtime devotions for the littlest ones.  I love The Singing Bible CD's too.  Although I usually like to just turn these on during Anna's room time or playtime.  My boys learned alot about the Bible from these CD's when they were younger.  I have been doing this with Anna already so once we finish with it we will just start it all over again.  Anna will be 4 in September and Abigail will be 2 in August.  I also have a large stack of books I plan to read to both girls.

For Workbooks I am using this Cutting book for Anna.  She loves doing workbook pages.
This is a book I plan to use over 2 years doing fun Science experiments.
We are using this to learn some fun songs.
We are reading this book on Character lessons.  It looks like a family picture album with stories.  What a neat idea!

I also picked a few of the books off the Sonlight PreK list to read to Anna.  I am mostly just having to be more purposeful in reading to Anna.  Life can get so busy that I don't read to her as much.
