“Come Back to Audible” promotion = 2 months for $0.99 each

I found this deal on one of my favorite Facebook pages: Read Aloud Resources. It worked for me, although my account was in “inactive” status and I had to completely cancel first, then sign back up.

Audible is doing a “Come Back to Audible” promotion for 2 months for $0.99 each– As far as I can tell, it works for any current account that is not enrolled in Audible right now. (I couldn’t use it on my enrolled account, but it worked for both my husband’s and mom’s accounts that were not active.) My mom received an email with a button to click… it brought her to the shopping cart with this promotion code applied: 153IMUXOB324

So perhaps you can sign in and choose “Gold membership” and then enter the above code? The link here is what was attached to the button in the email…looks like it works ok!

My husband did not received this email but I was able to sign into his account and get the promotion… so it looks like the promotion is not attached to certain accounts– just those that aren’t active. Try it!! Hope it works!!

**Edited to add… I was able to cancel my active account and immediately use the link below to get the promo! (After they gave me a free book to try to get me to stay!) Just make sure you use up your credits before cancelling your active account! I don’t think they will save once you cancel!**

Thanks, Read Aloud Resources!

Save more than $20 on Dollywod tickets through May 15!


Recently we had a chance to go to Dollywood with a friend who had three free “bring-a-friend” passes, which is the best deal ever! However, there are four people in my family so I nddede an extra child’s ticket. I was SO excited when a friend shared a discount code to get more than $20 off ticket prices! She said the code should work through May 15; I cannot promise that the discount code will work for you but I tested out and it made my daughter’s $52 ticket $35 before tax, so YMMV but I hope this proves helpful!


Go to the Dollywood website, and when you click on “tickets,” you should see the following promo code box, above. Before you do anything else, enter code XCEL and hit “apply”. This should make the $65 adult ticket $43.50, the $52 child’s ticket $35.50. You will need to be able to print these tickets and bring them to the park.

Thanks, Gymnastics Counts!

Poetry Teatime


Every Tuesday my girls and I have Poetry Teatime. This is a tradition we love, and one we discovered through the Brave Writer website. Brave Writer now has a new website dedicated entirely to poetry teatimes. When you visit the new website here you can get a FREE Quick Start Guide to Poetry Teatimes.


Here’s the fantastic poetry book I found at a yard sale!

The goal of Poetry Teatime is simple: foster a love of poetry in your children by associating it with beauty and fun. So, we get out Mom’s wedding china, light candles, eat delicious treats like scones, and read whatever poetry we feel like reading! For my children, this tends to include a lot of Shel Silverstein; for me, I’ve been reading Robert Louis Stevenson’s A Child’s Garden of Verses. Another good source for poetry is the Ambleside Online website here. We have also been working on poetry memorization in our homeschool, and Poetry Teatime is the perfect time to recite!

As summer approaches, consider bringing this tradition into your home! For more information on how to get started, visit the Poetry Teatime website here or the Facebook site here.

This post is my entry into the Poetry Teatime contest. You can find more information about the contest here.
