Sweet Basil

I have so much basil. If any want to come and get some, you are welcome to it. Even better, dig up a plant and take home to your house. It is growing like a weed at mine and there is no way I could ever use it all.

Hi everybody!! Heather Parris will be ordering peaches from Utah. The deadline for ordering is September 1. Her email address is and her phone number is 744-6573. You have to have your money to her before she will place your order.

The peaches are going to be $28.00 for 35 lbs. They will come sometime in the middle of September (maybe sooner/later). If you know of anyone that wants to order any, please let them know. If she doesn't get very many orders, they won't deliver to Tucson. Then she will be forced to cancel the orders.

If you have any questions, please contact her.

Can't help Sharing a Great Deal

Get $10 off a purchase of $10 or more at using code augappreciation.

I just ordered 2 movies- The Ultimate Gift and The Inheritance for $5.35 which included the shipping! I'm not sure how long the code will work.


I'm in desperate need of a good hairdresser that can work some magic on my hair. Does anybody have anyone they use that they love? I really want to find someone that I can just tell to do something cute and I can trust that they will do something great.

Joy School - Preschool

I know a lot of you already have your children in the Marana Preschool, but this might be worth looking into for next semester as well.

For those of you who are interested in something for your kids now, I am looking for some more kids to join our joy school group starting September 2nd, or so. It is for 3 and 4 year olds, the kids we have so far were born the end of 2004 and beginning of 2005. But the website does say an age variety can be a good thing sometimes (just over 3 and not old enough for kindergarden)

This link says it all

I hear it is best to have 4-6 kids in the group and we have about 3 dedicated to join so far.

With Joy School, each Mom takes turns teaching in her home (weekly or monthly basis). The lessons are prepared already and are based on learning the "JOY" of things in life. Not just ABC's or 123's. It is Christian based, not just LDS. (anyone have neighbors that may be interested?)

There is a fee. The one time fee of $50 is to become a member of the website (has other benefits as well, if I am not mistaken). And then there is a $70 fee for each semester. Tracy Gates has done this before and she said that since 2005 they have made it so that you only have to pay for each semester once per family. So, instead of $140 a year (two yrs total) for Wesly, Travis, and Nathan. I can pay the money for Wesly and when I do this for my younger boys, they will be free. (can't beat free!)

We need to have some Mom meetings before hand and it starts in September, let me know if you are interested! call me, or email me at ckcarbon at msn dot com.

Thanks! Kati

The Northwest Fire & Rescue will offer free inspections of vehicle car seats.

The fire district's technicians also will teach parents how to correctly install car seats as well as answer any questions about the use of child safety & booster seats. The Northwest Fire inspections are available by calling 887-1010 ext. 5006.
