     I make most of my own worksheets anymore.  I get so frustrated when I search for a worksheet and then find that the site that has a great one charges an anual fee to print them!  Stupid!  So I made my own domino math facts worksheet, my own weather icons stickers, my own water cycle sheet.  It's easier to just make my own than search for a good one!

    Those are really cute bottle cap numbers!  We don't have enough bottle caps to make them, but I'll bet I could find something to make them out of!

    We go through a gallon of milk a day so it didn't take long to save them up. LOL I actually have 22 more that I'm trying to decide what to do with them.

    Do you add pictures to your worksheets? What program or whatever do you use? Just Word? I would love to make more of my own worksheets.

     Oh they are bigger than I thought!  We could definately save up enough milk caps!

    Just Word.  I use the insert shape function a lot!  It's actually pretty easy.  We added photoes for our Rebus reading.  The boys made a couple stories and we would take out the names and put a picture in its place so Levi could read the story too (he's 6).  Oh and clip art I LOVE clip art!

    I have Office...XP or something and it just doesn't want to work for me. I'm going to have to have Hubby find me a better version.

    I'm a terrible picture taker so they do look a little wonky. LOL

     I'm horrible at pictures too!  We gave Levi a kids' digital camera for his brithday and the kids take the pictures!  They are really better than I am. LOL  And they never complain about the pics anymore!
