Expert Consignment Sale Tips for the Just Between Friends Sale

Thank you to Just Between Friends Lee's Summit for sponsoring this post and for hosting a consignment sale that I love to shop at every spring and fall!

The other day, someone complimented me on my outfit, and I excitedly told them that I bought the entire thing at a discount store. The original commenter was impressed, but her friend standing next to her said, "Why would you say that?! I would have just said thank you and let her think I paid more for it."

Why? Well, because I LIKE the fact that I'm able to dress my family and go Christmas shopping for pennies on the dollar! What I like even more is that I can afford to buy nicer used things than I would be able to otherwise. And if I'm extra lucky, I can even find new things at STEEPLY discounted prices if I keep my eyes open. I don't mind talking about it, because I'd like to see every family save the kind of money we do by shopping smartly!

Let's be honest, I totally see it as a game now! #winning

One of the issues that quad families face is needing to buy four new wardrobes every season for their growing kids. There are no hand-me-downs within the family because everyone is the same size. How do we do it affordably? Consignment sale shopping!

One of my favorite places to shop for kids clothes, toys, shoes, and literally every other kid-thing imaginable is at the Just Between Friends Consignment sales twice a year. I go every February and August and stock up!

I have to show you some of my finds at past JBF sales!

The JBF Lee's Summit owner knows that I raid the shoe section every time I visit her sale. She kind of teases me about it now, because I leave with a whole bag full of shoes without fail. I found these almost new sandals for Abby at the spring sale for only $2. Yeah, $2!!!


Have you seen these adorable lace boutique dresses floating around on children's clothing sites? I had seen them and really wanted them for the girls, but I didn't want to pay boutique prices. I paid $9 for the pink one and $12 for the yellow one at the spring sale. and they were NEW!

At the last sale, I also found a whole box of new, shrink wrapped Disney DVDs! I ended up with Frozen (we wore out our first copy and needed a replacement) and Planes for the kids!

This is the toy section of the sale. So many toys. Oh my word....Did I mention that I like to do my Christmas shopping at the JBF fall sale? Toys are in such great condition and there are no boxes/zip ties to mess with on Christmas morning. It's great! If you are looking for bigger toys like play houses, play kitchens, wagons, bicycles, etc, walk in the door, and walk straight to the back of the toy section. They are along the wall at the back, and they go FAST!

This is another one of my favorite finds! I found these three trikes at the JBF sale last fall. I paid $35 total for all three of them! With the fourth one that we were given by a friend, we had enough for all of the kids. 

I should stop there simply because if I don't, I'll be posting photos all night. You can see more on my Instagram and in past posts if you really want to see more examples. 

Meanwhile, you really need to find yourself a block of time to visit this sale. Here are the details:

Back to School for Our Last Year of Preschool!

Exactly a year ago, I posted our back to school post for the 2014-2015 school year. This is our back to school post for the 2015-2016 year!

I'm so impressed with myself for nailing this post topic two years in a row. BOOM!

Our kids are 4-year-olds now, so this is their last year of preschool. They are all still in blended classrooms that include SPED students, which we really like. And we really like their teachers again this year as well! We are actually one week into the school year, and I have to say, the teachers and paras are what make it worth taking the kids to this school. They totally pour into our kids, and fully love them. They are truly amazing women!

The official first day of school photo:
Abby, Elijah, Caleb, and Ellie

Take a look at Caleb's face. LOL! The kids have to get out of bed at 6:30am every morning for a 7:30am start time. Who schedules preschool to start that early?! Oh my stars. I feel his pain!



Mrs. Rachel and Caleb

This year, Caleb is in a room with one teacher and one para (last year he had 1 teacher and 2 paras) and so far it is working out. There was some talk with the SPED coordinator about placing him in a low incidence room this year, but we pushed hard against that. A low incidence room is one where all of the children are SPED and usually more severe. There are a lot fewer kids and extra paras in those rooms because of the level of needs. We pushed against it because we really feel that Caleb can succeed in a blended classroom (part SPED/part normal - although I hate to use that word). He is SMART, and he CAN learn just as much as other kids. He is mild to moderate on the spectrum, and we just didn't think that putting him in a room with severe kids was the right move. Thankfully, the SPED coordinator listened to our concerns, went back over his IEP paperwork again, and agreed to place him back in a blended classroom. He was placed with Mrs. Rachel who seems to really understand and grasp his issues and picked up immediately on tools to help him. She's already put him in charge of carrying a basket to and from the cafeteria from meals to help keep him focused (I think she just puts some random stuff in it. Lol!) His para is also a really wonderful woman who we've already grown to appreciate! Mrs. Pam is a retired school teacher and seems to "get him" and love him for who he is. He is already falling into a routine in the room, and I can tell this will be a very successful year!

See the photo above? He was laughing so hard he couldn't keep his eyes open! :)



Abby and Mrs. Bruns

Our sweet Abby is with Mrs. Bruns this year. Mrs. Bruns seems to be a really good match for Abby's personality and told me that Abby is "showing the new kids in preschool the ropes." Hahaha!! Sean and I are both hoping that's a good thing! Abby's main SPED issues are related to social/emotional coping skills, but Mrs. Bruns told me that so far, her transitions during the day are going well.

While I was working on this post yesterday, I asked Abby what her para's name was. She told me it was Mrs. Bird. When I dropped her off at school today, I asked her teacher. Apparently the para's name is Mrs. Linda and no birds are involved, but, I had already made the graphic, so....sorry, Mrs. Linda! Sometimes Abby is a little slow on the uptake. ;)


Mrs. Brittany and Elijah

Elijah is back with Mrs. Brittany and Mrs. Dee this year, and he could not possibly be more delighted! He actually has a little crush on Mrs. Brittany that started last year. It totally cracks us both up when Elijah walks up to her and says, "You have nice shoes!" Oh, they start early! And Mrs. Dee is just a riot! On the second day of school, Elijah walked in with bug bites all over his legs because I let him go outside to play and forgot to spray him down. She took one look at him and said, "You let my baby get all eaten up by BUGS?!" I apologized profusely, but love that she keeps such a close eye on him.

Sean and I are really happy that Elijah has his same teacher and para from last year. They are really awesome ladies, and know how to handle him well. We have a lot of trust in them, and appreciate the huge progress Elijah made last year. They've already reported that he is more settled and focused this year....they aren't sure if it's because he grew up a little bit over the summer or if it's the essential oils I slather him in before he leaves the house, but something changed. Granted, we still have a long. long way to go with the focusing, but everyone has high hopes for even more progress this year!


Mrs. Kesley and Ellie

Ellie is back with one of her most favorite people in the whole world: Mrs. Kelsey! She could hardly stand being away from her this summer, because she looks up to her so much. I'm routinely told, "Well, Mrs. Kelsey says...." Honestly though, Mrs. Kelsey is a wonderful role model for Ellie and she simply blossomed being in her classroom last year. This is such a perfect pairing!

Right now, Ellie's para, Mrs. Liz, is a sub while her regular para is out. We haven't met the regular para yet, but hope she is a lot like Mrs. Liz who seems to be very attentive to the kids and their needs. I'll have to update on that down the road!


Last year of preschool, and kindergarten is only a year away. Wow! I feel like there is a lot to accomplish this year before we head into elementary school.

Each of the kids will be tested before kindergarten to decide whether or not they need continuing special education services. In preschool, they give SPED kids a general school diagnosis of "Child with a Developmental Delay". In kindergarten, they make that much more specific and that is when labels start coming into play. We are praying that several of our kids will not qualify for services anymore after the progress they have made. We know that at least one or two will probably need continuing help, and we will fight tooth and nail for that, but it shouldn't be a thing that they deal with for their entire school career. The developmental pediatrician told us last year that he hopes to "un-diagnose" Caleb's autism in the next few years as he continues to adapt.  I think my biggest fear is having Caleb go all the way through school with a label that will limit him. We actually don't see his autism as a limitation, but rather as just a different set of wiring that contributes to how smart he is. It's just a matter of unlocking his brain in a way that makes sense to him. Anyway, now I'm just rambling. Long story short, we have big hopes for this year for all of our kids, and we know that God will take care of their kindergarten year and testing as we work toward that goal.

We Are Still Here!!

Oh....hey there!

I thought I'd pop over for a minute and say that:


WE ARE STILL HERE!

The nicest thing ever happened to me last week. I got an email from Bernice and a message from Cassie asking me if we were okay because we had been quiet for so long. Can I just say that it is the nicest thing in the world to be cared about by people we've never met? (Hey, friends!) It gave me the warm fuzzies that our sweet readers were thinking of us. Wow!

So yes! We are okay! Summer seemed to have disrupted our normal activities a bit.

--The kids are home from school and driving me crazy. I love them, but yes. Crazy.
--I'm still trying to work full-time. Emphasis on "try". Truthfully, not much is getting done with the hooligans home.
--Sean's mom who we loved so very dearly unexpectedly passed last month, and that has by far been the hardest things we have had to experience.
--We went on our first family vacation!
--and I'm sure some more stuff happened in there too.

The kids head back to school in 10 days, and I'm hopeful that my life might settle down a little bit more. I miss blogging, and I miss all of you truly wonderful friends who have been hanging with us for the last few years.

So for now, I have a quick photo to share with you! I get ONE good photo of my kids every 12-18 months. This is an impossible feat, y'all, but this one turned out so beautifully, I can't stop looking at it! I snapped this one a couple of weeks ago while we were in Colorado at the Garden of the Gods. The park is simply stunning! And I have a darn cute family as models!

Elijah, Ellie, Abby, Caleb, and Sean

Please tell me that I'm not the only one who has had a crazy busy summer! Leave me a comment and tell me what y'all have been up to with your own families! I'd love to hear about how you are spending your days with your kids out of school!

.....and we will be back soon!

The Little Things Thursdays: #105

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for supporting our family and blog!

Welcome to The Little Things Thursday!!

If you are new, we like to take a minute to look back on the little things that brightened our week. So often we get busy and forget all of the things that we enjoy as we go through our daily lives. This is an opportunity to stop, remember, and enjoy those things! Nothing is too small...in fact, the smaller the better! That's the whole point! If you have a blog, leave a link in a comment below! If you don't blog, I'd love for you to participate by leaving a moment in a comment anyway. Ready?

Who am I kidding? I just don't think I can keep up with this anymore as a weekly installment. Unless....does anyone want to come cook dinner for me every night? Lol! This post series might have a new name next time....like Little Things from My Entire Month.

1. Squirrel Watching
Ellie, Elijah, Abby, and Caleb

It's rare that I can get a decent picture of the four of them without someone trying to run away. I think the only reason why this one worked is because they couldn't see me whip out my phone to take the photo. Sean had pointed out a squirrel in the tree, and everyone had to go take a look.

This photo makes me realize how big my kids are getting. Goodness! And also, no one is blurry from moving too fast. I'll take it!


2. Fashion Rules were meant to be Broken
Abby

Abby is the queen of dressing up at our house! For all intents and purposes, the dress up trunk is her domain. This particular day, she donned a princess dress, a cowboy hat, and a single flip flop that was 3 sizes too small. Then a guy from the power company stopped by to look at the lines in the backyard, and Abby stood at the front door and had an extensive conversation about her day in preschool with him. He was SO nice and chatted right back with her. Oh my word. Watching the two of them discussing her life while she was dressed like that was hilarious!

3. The Rest of the Kiddos
Of course, I have to post updated photos of the rest of my cuties! :)  (they didn't feel the need to dress up like Abby did. haha!)
Ellie

Elijah

Caleb


4. Dandelions and Wishberries
Dandelions and Wishberries are ALL the rage at our house right now! Everyday, the kids come home from school and run through the neighbor's side yard looking for flowers. Dandelions are the yellow ones, and they become Wishberries when they turn into fluff balls. Not sure how they came up with that name for them, but I think it's adorable!
Elijah, Abby, Ellie, and Caleb

And lucky me, I get handfuls of flowers every day! :)


5. Hugs for Everyone!
We are currently in the midst of a hugging spree! Lots of hugs are flying around our house, and it makes my heart so happy to see my kids loving on each other....for at least those two minutes. 
Caleb and Elijah.......Ellie and Abby

And then, of course, one kid has something that another kid wants and there is much weeping and gnashing of teeth, but the hugs are marvelous while they last!

The kids really do love each other, and are each others' best friends. It doesn't get any better than that!
Caleb and Elijah


6. Pizza Castle
I wanted to share these cute photos of Elijah at school a few weeks ago. His class set up their own pizza parlor and each of them had a "job." They had a whole unit on restaurants and what goes into making one work. They opened it up to parents to come in and eat pizza at their restaurant so that all of the kids could role play. It was a really fun experience for them and fun for us to watch!

Elijah was a table busser....and let's just say that he was not pleased with his position. Lol! From what I could tell, he has higher career aspirations than that. Eventually, he was so fed up, he grabbed himself a plate, popped himself in a chair with all of the "customers," and ate lunch. Oh my stars! I went back and forth between being horribly embarrassed and being like, "yeah, he's four." His teacher said to just leave him be, so that's what I did. He is definitely a strong-willed child, and lately seems to be having more "come to Jesus" meetings with us than usual. Send back up!


7. Learning to Write Our Names
My mother-in-law's birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and we had the kids sign her birthday card. I love that you can actually make out their names now!


8. Best Black Eye Ever!
Take a look at that shiner! Holy moley! One day a couple of weeks ago, Abby climbed into the car after school with that going on. Apparently, she never cried, never showed any sign of distress, nothing while at school. And Abby is DEFINITELY my dramatic kid! One minute she didn't have anything, and then the next minute, she had a black eye. The teachers aren't sure where it came from either. It just appeared. We are all assuming that she fell into something while at school. Abby is also DEFINITELY my clumsy kid, so it probably didn't even phase her. But it darkened over the next 24 hours....just in time for school pictures. Haha! Preschool can be ROUGH!


9. Family Easter Picture
Back row: Daddy, Ellie, Mommy, Caleb
Front row: Abby, Elijah

Remember that bit about how all of our photos are blurry because the kids move too much? Yeah. Well, this is as good as it gets for our most recent family photo. :) 


10. School Days
And finally, I have to share this story as sent to me by Elijah's teacher. She even took photos and sent those to me as well. Lol!

"Once upon a time, a sweet little Elijah was just completely exhausted at recess time before nap. Ellie was riding the bike he wanted, and so he decided to crawl along holding the back of the bike, crying and yelling, 'stoooop!' while Ellie continuously and very patiently pedaled slowly along saying very sweetly, 'Elijah, no thank you. No thank you, Elijah.' We had to take pictures before helping to fix the issue and scoop sweet boy off the floor to go to nap time. :)"
Elijah and Ellie

 Elijah

Oh my word. This happened a few weeks ago. Last week, I got a call from the school nurse that Elijah got in FRONT of the bike that Ellie was riding, and she managed to mow him down. He had a fat lip for a couple of days. The drama of being four-years-old!

Letters from Dad: #25


(Once a month, I invite Sean to take over the blog and write a little note to our kids. I love that he is willing to leave little nuggets of wisdom for them to look back on when they are older! While many of the posts on this blog are written to share our lives with you, the reader, Sean's "Letters from Dad" series is truly written to our kids. You are welcome to peek in and see what he wants them to know!)

Hi Kids!

Daddy here. Have we been having some amazing adventures lately or what? Sometimes we feel like we never stop moving. You all are growing so big and conquering more and more milestones everyday. We are going out in public more and more, and you kids are doing so great at behaving incredibly well. Mommy and I are proud of you!

I hope we accomplish great things this summer. In summers past, we have made lists of all the things we plan on doing over the summer. This summer, Mommy and Daddy will be awfully busy. We will make the most of every chance we get, but we will probably stay pretty close to home except when we are adventuring. I hope you are ready to do some traveling. Road trips are in your future! Remember when we went to St. Louis to visit Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa? I hope you will have as much fun on our travel adventures this summer as you had on that trip.

Maybe we’ll do some swimming this summer! Maybe some painting! Definitely some ice cream! Probably do some yard work! Hopefully Daddy slims down by 30 or more lbs. It doesn’t matter what we end up doing, children. What matters is that we will be together, and we love each other.

Love,

Daddy

Easter Egg Hunt 2015

I'm always a few weeks behind posting holiday photos, but at least I'm finally getting these up!

We spent Easter with Sean's parents this year. We started our day off at church, ran home to take a nap, and then headed over to Sean's parents' house for Easter dinner. While I don't have any photos of the actual dinner, I do have lots of photos of the Easter egg hunt that the kids' grandparents put together for them!

I can't remember exactly how many eggs Sean's dad put out, but I think it was nearly 200. 200 eggs for 6 kids. It was awesome! The yard was almost carpeted in them and there were so many to go around that all of the kids had a chance to find eggs for quite awhile.

Previous Easter egg hunts have been fun, but this one was particularly enjoyable for me to watch! Our kids were a lot more independent this year, and this was also the first year that Caleb participated. He actually got right into it without having to be prompted. So while it wasn't his first Easter egg hunt, in many ways, it actually was. So fun to watch him embrace the idea this year!

Cousin Toby and Caleb

Caleb.....he's got this! YAY!!

All of the eggs were plastic, and Sean's mom actually stuffed each one with candy. (That's a LOT of candy!) While most of the eggs were opaque, there were a few that were clear. The kids had been gathering eggs for awhile when Ellie came across a clear one. And....THERE WAS CANDY IN IT?! Oh my word, the expression on her face when she realized that she had been gathering candy filled eggs was priceless!
"MOM!! There is CANDY in this egg! LOOK!"

And of course, she had to yell across the yard to her Daddy as well. :)
"DADDY!!! I FOUND CHOCOLATE IN MY EGG!"

Last year, Abby was still in her phase where she liked small objects but would become fixated on one thing and refuse to let go of it. I think she found maybe...four eggs total last year, and all bets were off when she came across a red one. From that point on, she held onto that egg like it was the last egg on earth.

This year, she was totally into the egg hunt, and ran around collecting eggs regardless of color.
Abby

She filled her bucket right up!
Abby

Elijah....oh, Elijah. This child is currently our biggest handful. He loved the egg hunt, and actually found the most out of all of our kids. The bucket was positively overflowing by the time he was done. He loved every minute of it, and I was extra glad that Ma and Pa (grandparents) had taken the time to put out so many eggs!
Elijah

But then, he too also figured out that the eggs were stuffed with candy. However, he didn't bother to announce that find with us. Instead, he hauled his entire bucket of eggs up the ladder, into the clubhouse, quietly closed the door, and then proceeded to unwrap candy and stuff it in his mouth as fast as he possibly could.

How did we find out? Well, Ellie visited the clubhouse, saw what was going down, and thought that it was a fabulous idea! She called down to her Daddy and said, "Daddy, could you please bring up my eggs so that I can eat all of my candy like Elijah?"

BUSTED!

Let's just say that Elijah was VERY disappointed when Daddy climbed the ladder to clear the eggs out.
Elijah

We really enjoyed watching them hunt Easter eggs this year....the sugar crash after wasn't too pleasant, but they did go right to sleep that night which was really nice for their tired parents!

We hope y'all had a wonderful Easter with friend and family, and most importantly recognizing the gift that Jesus gave to us so many years ago: Redemption!

The Little Things Thursdays: #104

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for supporting our family and blog!

Welcome to The Little Things Thursday!!

If you are new, we like to take a minute to look back on the little things that brightened our week. So often we get busy and forget all of the things that we enjoy as we go through our daily lives. This is an opportunity to stop, remember, and enjoy those things! Nothing is too small...in fact, the smaller the better! That's the whole point! If you have a blog, leave a link in a comment below! If you don't blog, I'd love for you to participate by leaving a moment in a comment anyway. Ready?


1. And...It's April!
It's been about 3 weeks since a Little Things Thursday. Every year from mid-February to the end of March, I fly along by the seat of my pants (not saying I don't the rest of the year, but these few weeks are CRAZY!!). We have Sean's birthday, the kids' birthday, taxes (I'm self-employed so they are a doozy!), a consignment sale, and our anniversary. It doesn't seem like much when you type it all out, but it gets STRESSFUL up in here! Thankfully, Sean helped a ton with consignment sale prep this go around, and that lightened my load considerably.

I am always SO happy to see April arrive!

2. The Dying of the Easter Eggs
This was our first year letting the kids dye eggs, and let's just say that if Sean and his mom hadn't ganged up on me and made it happen, I probably wouldn't have done it. Four 4-year-olds and dye. In my head, there are just so many ways that can go wrong. But I'm also admittedly short on the bravery front when it comes to trying new things as an adult, so I'm sure that's playing into it with my kids. I really need to put on my big girl panties more often and just go for it.

Sean's mom volunteered her house for the Easter Egg dying adventure, so the kids and I all showed up to work on them with the help of their Cousin Marissa. Let's do this thing!
Marissa, Ellie, Ma, Elijah, Caleb, and Abby

The kids were all excited to see what this project was about. "Coloring" eggs was definitely a new concept.
Ellie....I just love the little dimple that jumps out when she is grinning!

Elijah....trying very hard to say "cheese" and smile at the same time

Most of the kids followed the general game plan of dying eggs....except for Caleb. Caleb plopped into a chair, grabbed an egg (look at the first photo above! You can see him grabbing it!), smacked it open on the table, and started shoving pieces into his mouth. Shell and all.

I mean, if you are going to give a boy food, what do you expect, right?

And that was the end of Caleb's participation. I guess he didn't like the way the shell crunched, so he went upstairs to play. Lol!
Caleb

The rest of the kids hung around awhile longer. Elijah dyed one egg before he was done. Ellie finished two, colored on the tablecloth with the provided crayons, and then headed to play, but Abby stuck it out to the end. I think she loved seeing her eggs turn colors!

And then we broke for fruit snacks! Don't worry, Caleb came back for those. *wink*

It ended up being a very successful egg dying experience! Watch out world! My kids know how to use dye!
Abby

The Easter Eggs! Everybody had four to begin with...and Caleb left with three!


3. Because You Asked....
I've had several emails over the past few months asking for info on essential oils classes. I'm teaching an online Introduction to Essential Oils Class on FaceBook on April 14th at 8pm, central time. Everything will be in text format with all posts numbered in order. It's the same info that I teach in person, albeit with much less commentary and side bars about rescuing my kids with oils. Ha! You'll have to just imagine that part. *wink* The class will be in real time, but I'll leave it up for a few days after it ends in case you can't make it right when it is going on. I'd love to see you there!

Now it's your turn! What Little Things brightened up your week? Link up your post in a comment below and make sure you come back next week to play again!
