We had a wedding in our family a few weeks ago. Our beautiful daughter, Cassie, married a good, kind, and worthy young man, LaMar. March 8 is their anniversary and what a lovely day it was. We had a little rain, but from what we heard, that's a good thing.
We are truly happy for both of them and pray they will receive all the blessings Heavenly Father has prepared for them. We love you both!

This post is part of a series of reading journal prompt pages that I'll be posting over the coming months. This post includes setting prompt pages.
This file includes 9 different prompts, some with a few different page layouts. I've also included 4 more cover pages and additional templates.
I'm dividing these posts into parts because of the amount of pages that will be provided. I will be adding pages for all the types of prompts I used with my kids over the years. Below is a list of the future pages or categories that will be or have been posted here free to my blog. They are not necessarily in the order they will be posted.
- Cover Pages and Logs
- Characters and more cover pages
- Setting and yet again more cover pages (this post)
- Main Idea
A couple of my products that would be a help while using these upcoming freebies are the following:
- Literary Terms Flashcards - $1.20 - A great tool for your children to understand literary terms.
- Literary Elements Mini-books - $3.60 - This lapbook book can be used in a couple different ways. You could study literary elements and complete the lapbook as it is laid out or add some or all of the minibooks to your literature study.
If you're not already subscribed to my blog, or following me on Facebook, Twitter , Google +, or Pintrest you'll want to do that so you don't miss out on all these free pages! I also have a youtube channel with lots of video tutorials on how to make your own notebooking pages. I post family videos on there as well. I should probably move them, but for now they are on the same channel. You know, for the grand parents :)

There's a LOT of great stuff available for St. Patrick's Day!! I didn't add everything I found but I added a few Pinterest boards at the bottom with a bunch of fun stuff as well.
I'm getting this out SO MUCH later than planned (I sorta had my daughter's wedding to plan and stuff;) But you can always save these to your computer for next year -- that way you don't loose track of all this greatness. Because I'm so absent minded, I send myself alerts on my phone to remind myself of the file on my computer I saved for something later... is that completely insane? I hope not! I just can't keep track of it all!! Haha!
First, here's a little about St. Patrick. There's a lot more out there, so don't limit yourselves :)
St. Patrick's Day Notebooking Pages for your little ones from Yours Truly :)
Here are a few really fun Pinterest boards that are sure to inspire you! They did me! These are in no particular order... they're all awesome!

I have had email after email and comment and comment (most I don't post here on the blog, just respond to privately) with questions about downloading from MediaFire. Most of the your questions are wondering if you need to subscribe in order to download. The answer is a GREAT BIG NO!! Thankfully! Because if you had to pay to download what's the point in giving it away for free! Of course if you'd you'd like to, please feel free. MediaFire is an excellent resource and a great deal for those of you who might need the file space but I'm guessing the majority of you don't :)
For those of you who are having problems, I wanted to post this short tutorial on how to download from their site free. They've changed their site recently and added a couple little "tricks" to try and get you to purchase but it's not at all necessary.
There's a small down arrow at the top right-hand side of the page... click on that to go the download page.
Here's where it gets a little tricky. The center box has what looks like a $1.50 sign-up charge to download. This is just an advertisement -- ignore it -- unless you want to sign up with them, of course. Just below it, click on the long, green download button and your file will begin to download right away.
This should clear up any problems you have with downloading over at MediaFire.
Some of you are also having a problem over at Scridb. Most my large files are linked to MediaFire and a few of those are also linked to Scridb. If you have problems with Scridb, I would suggest you try the MediaFire link in the post first. If you continue to have problem, then let me know.
