Enhancing your driveway has many benefits, from boosting curb appeal to increasing the overall value of your home. Driveway paver stones are a durable, cost-effective solution to adding some customized style to a driveway. Various colors and textures make it easy to find a design that blends in with a home’s existing exterior decor. Paver stones can mimic the look and feel of more expensive materials for a fraction of what the real thing would cost. This means that a larger area can be covered without sacrificing on the visual appeal often associated with a driveway. There’s also not as much upkeep since paver stones are especially durable and can stand up to all types of vehicles, even multiple vehicles and the occasional truck.

On a practical level, paver stones for the driveway are especially durable. Unlike some common driveway materials, these stones can endure seasonal temperature changes and withstand everything from heavy rains to winter snow. With the economy still on the sluggish side, anything that can increase the value of a home is much appreciated. Some homeowner’s policies provide discounts for proactive improvements such as upgrading an older driveway. Saving money on driveway upgrades also leaves room in the budget to take care of landscaping issues. This may include choosing the right plants and adding landscape lighting for both safety and enhancement of your exterior features, including a well-designed driveway.

No, my kids don’t write on our walls.
But one day, Roi asked me to go to their room. He said he was going to show me something. Now when he does that, I have to go otherwise he will keep bugging me and won’t stop until I gave in.
He showed me this:
Awww, ain’t that sweet? My heart melted. Now this could easily be removed from the wall in case we don’t want it anymore because he used a material that’s similar to clay. I don’t know what it’s called but I use it for my visual aids when teaching.
Sweet boy, isn’t he? And he never fails us to give hugs, too.
Happy mom I am.

Hubby sees musical instruments as investments, not as expenses. If it means that our kids will grow musically and would be able to have access to different musical instruments to learn, then I think I would not think twice in spending money!
I think I might have blogged about Roi learning drums before. He liked it at first but eventually, he got tired of it, got scared of his teacher who did not speak any English, had lots of alibis not to attend his drum classes but we are so happy that he was able to finish the entire course.
I don’t know if he would want to enroll in drum classes again when we go home to the Philippines or he will opt for another musical instrument to learn. Hubby was looking at roland apc-33 drum pad clamp at guitar center and hopes that Roi will still choose to learn drums. As for me, I don’t really mind as long as our boy is happy with what he chooses.
