Let the old waves roll out to sea and a whole new blank slate appear ~~ fresh + available for opportunity. 

From the very beginning of the inception of this blog, my driving enthusiasm was to bring excellence in the field to greater visibility, offering support and encouragement in the process. We make continual progress on that front by increasing readership here and inviting an ever wider slate of authors to contribute. 

Today marks a new day indeed! DRUMROLL>>>>>>>
PreK+K Sharing has now launched our own dot com for resources. We have our very own sweet, super cyber-store! We have just this morning cut the cyber-ribbon and opened our.............

EEE is a gathering spot under one big polka-dotted umbrella for resources of all sorts! Books in every format and focus: professional, picture and e-style, CDs, DVDs, parent support materials, and digital products are already gathered together for your centralized shopping. 

Our authors here at the collaborative blog and some of our bestest friends have worked together to open up shop under one cooperative umbrella. By working together we plan to shine light on each other's projects and products and gain greater visibility for all in the process. EXCELLENCE! That's what its been about from the very beginning. 

As I type we already have our first dozen early adopter shop keepers and over 40 products gathered under one roof: EEE!!! I'm betting that by the end of the day we have oodles more, with new additions arriving day-by-day all week long.

Getting Organized for the New Year? Look no further!!
***If you came over today in search of organization ideas, we have them from many perspectives. Our #5th read article of all time was FILLED with links to organizational ideas, click here to see all of those ideas. Deanna Jump's sense of humor is chronicled here as she battles back the stuff that makes for shrieking into a system for success. Kaci Hoffer has a year's worth of insight there. Pam Bergman shares her secrets for keeping all of those felt storyboard pieces just where you need them at this click

***If you're determined to start the new year thinking on health issues and searching for insight into the epidemic on childhood obesity, I gathered statistics and resources in this article exactly a year ago. If you need a coach to outline your own personal health goals, seek out our own Dr. Ellaine Miller's insight here and there. Or look to Rachel Suppala's journey to health in this personal article.

***This has been a BIG year for me on so many levels. In addition to now holding the keys to the front door of our EEE, just a couple of weeks ago I cemented my own professional milestone by delivering my first NATIONAL keynote. Yes. Debbie did Dallas. I spoke for the Annual Parent Institute for the National Head Start Association.

Heart-felt Empowerment for Goal Reaching

If you're looking for an article on making your dreams come true, particularly when they seem to be taking for-ev-er to materialize, you'll wanna take a look at my insight, over at RainbowsWithinReach. It's a heart-felt letter of encouragement. I've been told its appropriate to have a tissue near-by, particularly if you've ever dealt with the "MeanGirlsClub." 

But if what you REALLY need for tomorrow are some ideas for winter-time projects, I just gathered together one of my famous seasonal RoundUPs over at my place. You're just a click away. There are five different winter bulletin boards awaiting your selection.
Dreams really do come to fruition. It takes willingness. It takes time. It takes perseverance. It takes baby steps. I can't wait for the 2014 report, twelve months hence. How many store-fronts will be under our polka-dot umbrella by that point in time? How many products? We should start a poll now!!! Thanks for being part of it all. Thanks for your support and encouragement. Leaving a comment of congratulations, might just enter you into one of our 13 contests. Go ahead. Help us spread the word!

  5. The GED tests you on the same sort of subjects as a traditional school. Math, science, reading, writing, and social studies are all on it. The whole test takes about seven hours to complete. Don’t faint! You are allowed to take the test in pieces if you want. The gist of the GED is more about thinking critically than memorization. It will test your ability to figure things out, not recite facts. It will also ask you to apply your knowledge to different situations to achieve a solution.
