CPR & First Aid

Yesterday, my dd's and I took a first aid/CPR class. This has been something I have been wanting us to learn, especially the CPR. Having looked at classes that cost almost $100 to attend, I was blessed to have something for FREE, although it was not certified. I know others may not have this opportunity so I thought I would share some resources for being able to do this inexpensively:

You can order the Manikin and DVD here for $30, this will teach you child/adult, they also have an infant course for $45.

Here is a website I found for helping to teach first aid:

NOTE: Snuff's Girl whose husband is a fire fighter also left this comment, which I thought was good to know:

"Check with the fire dept in your area and ask them when they have CPR classes....

Quite a few of our firefighters are certified to teach CPR/First aid if you check with the FD they can probably get you in touch with some of these guys, find out where they are teaching and you should be able to go. FREE, or just the cost of the card which is 5-10 bucks."

Homemade Birthday Candles


Since we are learning American History, one of our projects for homeschooling was making hand dipped candles. They didnt come exactly like we expected, but they made some cool birthday candles.

Mozilla Firefox

Does anyone else have this problem? I have been using Mozilla Firefox browser for several years now. When I first started using this it was great! But for the past 6 months (or longer) I have noticed that every couple of months when it upgrades (and it seems to upgrade almost every week) everything gets deleted. My bookmarks, my tabs that I have saved etc. Am I the only one that Mozilla does this to, or are there others? It is very frustrating! Maybe I should switch back to Internet Explorer.

Saturday Psalm & Praise Meme

We sang this song at church on Sunday and then again at the ladies Bible Study and it has been on my mind ever since!

How deep the Father's love for us,
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One,
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice,
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
(REPEAT)
