so the girls maybe well ahead of me on "online resources", but here are two websites, that I think, have some very useful information.
(Remember the online resources are one of those "good/evil" things containing a wealth of knowledge and resources, but also be cautious of your own information and recommendations that might be given.)

Here is a website that lets parents set up an online job chart for kids. (thanks Shyla) It has a video explaining how it works and there is a link to a Parenting Blog. The kids earn points and then they can save those, share those, or spend those. Seems like a good idea to me. Our grand kids are still (a tad bit :) young- but soon they could do this. I guess it also teaches on line shopping, if they decide to "spend" their points (of course those points need to be translated into $)- but on line shopping is something they should probably know anyway. Remember our lives are computer centered! (one of those good/evil things :) Check it out and see what you think.

Thanks to the snow storms, The Silver Hanger has a wedding dress stuck in Stafford, Texas. (that one should be out for delivery soon- Stafford is always the last stop, before delivery. But it has been there since last Thursday) A pair of shoes stuck in Dallas, Texas. (those have been there since last Wednesday) 3 wedding dresses stuck in Mesquite, Texas. (at least those made a little progress- they were stuck in Oklahoma City) And prom dresses stuck in Jackson, Miss. (not sure exactly how those got there :) Life's little inconveniences. Actually, I am counting my blessings for living in southern Texas right now. Other people are suffering LARGE inconveniences, with more snow coming.
