Us can prep your childrens for kindergarten! Only $200!

I saw an ad today on Craigslist that advertised for a summer day camp to help prepare your child for kindergarten. I plan on homeschooling my children, but I looked at the ad to see what types of activities were planned as part of the program. I really got a kick out of the ad. Part of the ad stated:

” This will be a month long program with TWO CRETIFIED Rio Rancho Kindergarten teachers. “

I am not responsible for the capitalization… it was like that in the ad. Here’s more of the ad: (The parts within the <> are my doing.)

“Would you like to make sure they <are> ready for August?

If so than <then> this Kindergarten Camp is for your child.

Hurry and sign your child up today, there is <are> ONLY 8 spots available!
$200.00 for the month!”

Now, I know that you may think, “oh, those are just typos”. Yet, if you were advertising for an EDUCATIONAL program, and wanted to highlight the fact that you are CERTIFIED to teach, then wouldn’t it make sense to proof read and spell-check your ad?

I’m on Craigslist!

I finally got around to putting some items up for sale on Craigslist. I wonder how many people actually get something sold on there versus the number of ads put up. I’ve bought from people on there a few times. Anyways, I might start a new link to the stuff I have for sale on craigslist. On another note, Nathan showed me this site that sorts craigslist ads and also shows all on one page and shows thumbnails of pictures so you can compare items, prices, etc. Pretty neat.

Update: Check out “My Stuff on Craigslist” under my Personal Pages to see what’s up for sale.

Freecycle, Craigslist

I scored some free/inexpensive items today on and Craiglist. I got a pictionary game off of Freecycle. I played this recently and had a blast. I also scored a bike trailer for Sean to ride in and a jogging stroller for pretty cheap on Craigslist. I can hardly wait to use them. I LOVE IT!!! It’s like thrift store shopping online, except sometimes it’s free!
