Well can you believe my little darlings are still not in school? I feel like the last man standing here as we have one more week of summer vacation.
I have really been cramming in the sight word practice for both my 5 year old and 7 year old the past few weeks so they are fresh and ready to start school.
But you can only do flashcards and writing it out and spelling aloud so many times and it gets so boring for them. So I decided to have a little fun with some words and make it a game to try to get them interested in learning.
If you have little ones that are trying to memorize lists of sight words, this might be something you consider trying with your kiddos.

There is a sale running at Famous Footwear that I thought I’d mention.
Buy One Pair of shoes and get a second pair for 50% off. Plus you can take an extra 15% or 20% off that price. So it works out to be a fairly good deal on shoes that don’t go on sale often like Nike, Sketchers, Adidas….
I tested this pair of women’s Nike shoes for $64 and added a second pair of children’s Sketcher’s for $50. The price dropped to $25 in my cart for the children’s shoes.
Shipping adds $4 but the extra 15% off took off an extra $13.50. So my grand total for a pair of $65 shoes + $50 shoes was $81.
You can get 20% off instead of 15% off by registering for the rewards club. I have not registered myself but I believe it is free to join.
I also tested out the crew socks for boys- they have 3 packs of Nike socks for $13.99. These also qualify for buy one get one 50% off and the extra 15% discount.
The grand total for 6 pairs of Nike socks was $21 including shipping fees.
Click here to start shopping- the Buy One Get One 50% off is automatic and use coupon code: SHOP29 for the extra 15% off. If you decide to register for the rewards, use coupon code SCHOOL92 at checkout.
There is a nice sale from Flirty Aprons today. You can get a handful of styles for 60% off.
These are really cute to put away for holiday gifts- add a fun cookbook or baking items and you have a very cute gift.
The price on the aprons is $29- use coupon code SADIE60 and the price drops to $12! Shipping adds $4– so your total price should be right around $16. That is an excellent deal for aprons that normally sell for $33.
Head over here to Flirty Aprons to see the styles included in the promotion.
If you can use a sample of paint, head over to request a free quart from Kelly Moore.
Just fill your info in and the coupon is valid through August 24th.
These are great for little projects around the house.
I love when this freebie comes around!
There will be 2 Build and Grow Clinics at Lowe’s in September.
The first is on September 13th and your kids will make a pair of binoculars.
The second event is on September 27th and your kids will make a fire truck.
Each event will be held at 10am. Registration will be open for the first clinic starting this Monday. I wanted to go ahead and give you the heads up now as these do get filled up quickly. It is usually best to sign up early. I think since the kids are back in school now and people are home for the weekends, these will probably fill up especially quickly.
The kids should get an apron, all the supplies for the clinic and a few other goodies.
And you can learn more about the August event here.

***Update: Since there was such short notice on this promotion, Reebok has extended the offer. You can save 40% with code SAVE40 until noon PST or 3pm EST on 8/21 only.
Well goodness. Reebok has an excellent sale running but it is a beat the clock thing so unfortunately there isn’t much time to order.
They are offering 40% off almost everything from 9pm PST until 5am PST (or midnight EST and 8 am EST).
After that the discount drops to 30% off until 1pm PST or 4pm EST and then finally 20% off until midnight EST.
So if you are a night owl or a super early riser, you can get a great deal!
I randomly tested these women’s sneakers on sale for $69 and the price dropped to $41 in my cart. That is a great price for quality shoes.
I found these sneakers for boys in the outlet for $59– so they dropped to $35 in my cart!
Head over to Reebok to take a look- use coupon code: CLOCKWORK at checkout. Shipping is free as are any returns!
*Note: Here are the exclusions from Reebok: Does not include items priced ending in $.98, custom items and gift cards. Valid for CrossFit sale items only, not full price CrossFit footwear/apparel.
PS: I went for it and ordered the Reebok Skyscape Shoes in pink. I was waffling on the grey but the grey is only available in size 5.
These have great reviews as walking shoes if you do lots of errands or you are always off running around with the kiddos.
The price is $64 but they drop to $38 after coupon code.
