Montessori Candy: Sad News

Hello dear readers,
This is usually a place of positivity and encouragement, but unfortunately I have to share some bad news. Google/Goddady were not able to help me in the renewal of, so it seems that some greedy kid decided to put it on back order and now want's me to pay top dollar to get my domain back. I offered him some money, but it seems that this kid thinks I must be rich. It isn't good enough for him, and he want's more money.

Please keep me and that kid in your prayers. Me for my patience and kindness toward this kid, and for the kid not to be filled with greed and have some compassion.

My long time readers know I started this blog as a way to share and encourage others in their home schooling endeavors. I am so happy to have helped and been helped through this blog. I don't know what will happen. Maybe this kid is helping to squash everything I've done since 2008, and what I could continue to do with the blog?

The information for the company who is trying to squeeze money out of me is the following:

Technical Contact:
Domains, Inc., Lease
9654 w. 131st St.
Suite 411
Palos Park, IL 60464

I wish I could go on the Today show and state my case against this guy! What to do?....

Now I have to try and get a hold of someone at Google to try and help me sort out what happened to  Sooo... for now, please use

A Montessori Moment

Here's a cute pic of the kids just hanging out. I love it when they work together. Even the older children who've already mastered the colored tablets, were enjoying spending time with the little one's. The older children taking joy and practicing patience in teaching the younger one's, and the younger children excited to be working with the materials alongside the old kids. I think it's sweet, and I feel blessed to be able to be a part of it, even if just as an observer.
