Preparing children for a move … by FRONTDOOR. Before leaving your old home behind, it’s important to help your children prepare to say goodbye to it. Here are some tips to help their relocation go as smoothly as possible … CLICK HERE.
Most children will not only be moving from their home, they may also be changing schools. One great website for information is GREATSCHOOLS.NET
And for more helpful moving with children tips – especially those in the Military, please view MILITARY AVENUE
A great book is GOODBYE HOUSE by: Frank Asch for young children. For teenagers look into FOOTSTEPS AROUND THE WORLD: RELOCATION TIPS FOR TEENS by: Beverly D. Roman.

Isn’t summer great?! I must say that some of my fondest childhood memories are during the summer time! Maybe because school was out, the weather was warm, lots of family gatherings and outdoor activities – like the yearly Italian Feasts my elementary school always held – good old Our Lady of Victory in Mt. Vernon, NY. Going to Tibbitts Brook Pool in Yonkers, NY and to Glen Island Beach in New Rochelle, NY. And, one of my most FAVORITE memories is going to the movies to watch JAWS. I was 10 years old and that movie STILL sends chills up my spine! I LOVE the summer!

I HOPE EVERYONE ENJOYED THE 4TH OF JULY – CELEBRATING FAMILY, FRIENDS AND OUR INDEPENDENCE!
Thanks to GOOGLE IMAGERY for these spectacular photos!
I can’t believe it’s July already! I have been extremely busy …. getting about 6 hours of sleep a day …. and LOVING IT!!
The other day, I came down to get a cup of coffee, half asleep, I looked over and said “Good Morning” to our 2 Cockatiels, Chico and Cha-Cha. Although, this morning I thought I saw 3 birds and said to myself, I’d better start getting more sleep soon since I’m now starting to see things!
I had my coffee, watched “Good Morning America”, updated my Tweets on “Twitter” - which is people from all over, lots Realtors who share lots of informative info about the market, new technology and lots of personal stories in the business along with much needed support and networking.
After doing some work, I started to make my way back upstairs and once again, I noticed 3 birds!! I stood there …. blinked …. still 3 birds instead of 2!
I decided to open the cage door to see if it, the 3rd bird, would move. It sure did - it tried biting me! I quickly called my husband to see if he had any idea why we had an extra bird. He laughed, HA! HA! – NOT funny I thought.
He explained that after working a double shift last night, he brought her home while I was in the shower. Not having much sleep himself, he completely forgot to tell me and left again early in the morning – “SURPRISE” – he said!
Her name is Fufita and she still tries to bite me, but Chico and Cha-Cha love her! AND I’m still not getting enough sleep… and LOVING IT!!
