Love And Joy Is In The Air With Peanuts! #PeanutsInsiders #Giveaway #Ad



    I cannot believe that this school year is almost over.  We are currently planning for eighth grade graduation at the school where I teach.  It’s going to be bittersweet saying goodbye to my students whom I have taught for the past two years.  It’s a very exciting time for them as they prepare to embark on new adventures in high school in the Fall.

    My boys are also wrapping up the school year.  Next year, my oldest will be graduating from the eighth grade and my younger one will be in the fifth grade.  It’s amazing how quickly time passes and how wonderful it is to experience these milestones with them as their mother.  

    Another exciting event that is coming up is that my husband and I will be going away for the first romantic weekend without kids in over 13 years.  It has been difficult coordinating a getaway like this one over the years due to parenthood and, in the past two years, due to my younger son’s diagnosis of having epilepsy.

    It’s June, and what’s not to love?  Moms, Summer is almost here, little birdies singing…and Snoopy, giving hugs to Woodstock and his other bright yellow pals!

    To celebrate the fact that the school year is almost over, I have a giveaway for you:

    One lucky reader will share the Snoopy love when he or she wins this adorable “Love Is a Beagle Hug” figurine by Jim Shore. The piece stands 7 inches tall, is made of stone resin, and each one is individually hand-painted, meaning every figurine is unique.

    I love the summer! It’s beach time and the kids are out of school. Everyone seems happier and I enjoy the freedom. No schedules. My husband and I also can have some alone time in the summer too. We go beach camping at least twice during the summer and I am having a large family reunion BBQ.

  15. I grew up loving the Sunday paper just so I could read Peanuts!
