MAY FREE & CHEAP EVENTS (May 6- May 8, 2016)

 

It is Mother’s Day Weekend! Before I get to the Happy Stuff, I am asking everyone to please say a few prayers for three families that are/were members of this group.

We sadly had lost two Moms in the Entertain Kids On A Dime Community over the past 2 years. Irina Shoykher and Amanda Prosper both lost their lives too young both each leaving 3 children behind.

This is also the first Mother’s Day that Jennifer Neville-Lake will be spending without her kids. Although her kids are not with you, it does not take her  title of Mom away. You are an incredible person and a wonderful Mother!
