School Year is almost out–What do you Give your TEACHER? LinkedMoms Chat Wed. June 19, 8 pm EST

We are winding down the school year.  My second daughter was in Quebec City and Ottawa for her grade 8 school trip.  My son is headed to Ottawa mid-week.  My eldest is busy working on year end projects.

2012-12-29 002

As we start making plans for summer vacation and school holidays we all know we have to wrap up our year.  At the end of the year, we need to take the time to say thanks.

You, my son’s teacher spend nearly 7 hours a day with my son.  There are 140 school days so on average, you have spent 920 hours with my child.  THAT is a huge amount of time considering he is only awake 14 of 24 hours.

On LinkedMoms’s Chat this week, we are going to talk about wrapping up our academic year and discuss who we love to thank and appreciate at this time of year.  When you say thanks to your teacher what do you do? Do you make your gifts? Buy them or skip this all together.  One of my good blogging friends, Jenn from 1 Heart, 1 Family put together a great blog hop with ideas for teacher’s gifts.  Please make sure to drop by and say hello and have a look at all the great bloggers that contributed to the hop.  We love supporting our Linkedmoms community.

So come along and follow the conversation that is going on at LinkedMoms.

Gardening–LinkedMoms Chat–June 12, 8 pm EST–Prizes from DKCanada

Gardening_Linkedmoms

April showers bring May flowers or in our case… May showers bring June flowers.  This week on Linkedmoms we are all about gardening.  Paula and I are of two different mines, she likes gardening and mucking about in the dirt, my idea of a great garden is a ‘Zen’ garden – one lonely bonsai and a lot of rocks in a nice neat pattern. 

I am pretty certain I am in the minority since most of my friends love to garden.  So we at LinkedMoms wanted to invite our community to join us in the discussion. Tell us about your gardens, show us pictures from pinterest or your blog, give us some great tips to be better gardeners. Tell us how you make gardening easier for you – do you plant perennials more then annuals? Do you use a lot of mulch to keep the weeds at bay? Do you like the Zen look like I do? Come by and chat with us.

We have some sweet surprises for you – a few choice gardening books are up for grabs.  We are happy to announce that DK books has generously offered some of their gardening books for our community.
