I have attempted, not whole heartily might I add, to work out a budget for my family to stick to. I was given a spreadsheet to fill out with all of our expenses and incomes. I couldn't even fill out the slots. So I am wondering what kinds of tips my wonderful readers have to offer.
If you have a great plan that works for you please comment with your suggestions. I really do appreciate any suggestions.

I wanted to let you all know that I have purchased my ticket, YAY!!!!!
I will be going to Virginia to attend Boot Camp in September. I am excited but nervous at the same time! I can not wait to actually get to meet my up line as well as other BBP reps. However, I am nervous about leaving my girls for two days!:(
I know that they will be taken care of but this will be the first time that I leave them for more than one night! I ask that you all send me your good thoughts while I am at Boot Camp to help me through.
Okay, just wanted to let everyone know that I am on my way to Boot Camp!
Destination Boot Camp, here I come!

When you were young, pony-tailed,
face full of playful freckles,
were you a daddy's girl?
I was. I still am.
Did you look to him for your security,
for love and attention,
for the understanding,
and the patience you lacked
as a child?
My daddy was the center of my small world,
the focus of my affections,
the star that lit my life,
Shining still in my heart.
The years have led me here,
weathered with maturity and responsibilities,
and I see more clearly now.
The hardships, burdens of love,
and all the small sacrifices he made for me,
for our family.
He created stability,
a place to call home.
All the photographs I browse through
of a child long forgotten,
scarcely remembered smiling,
so happy and so loved.
The mere thought of becoming that role model
is enough to send me cowering, afraid...
looking for guidance.
Turning to my father and my more for support,
advice, wise counsel, and for approval.
Grown up, I see differently now...
A new perspective of a man I have always known.
My heart is full, my emotions overpowering
just in the certainty of that bond.
He's been there for me through all the conflicts
helping me over the rough, ragged stones of growing up.
My respect for him is unending,
faith is unbound, and love is unquestioning.
Even in the midst of all my imperfections, he is lenient,
ignoring the pitfalls, the downfalls, the shortcomings,
he just accepted me as I was, as I am.
The sheer purity of it leaves me awe-struck and
it lifts me up, it holds my head a little higher,
it keeps me in balance,
harmonizing with the world around me
beautifully, like an inspired masterpiece from the soul
of an honest man.
I am honored to know him, to love him, to be of him.
He's my hero, and I am his daughter, his little girl.

Tony was able to attend the benefit in his honor Saturday, what a blessing from above! Tony really seemed to enjoy himself. There was music, dancing, great food, and a huge amount of community support!
We have somewhat estimated that there were around 600 people in attendance. We, the benefit organizers, are very pleased and appreciative of how well this turned out!
I hope to have photos to share soon so I will update the website with a link to the pictures as soon as it is available! If you have not signed the guestbook on the website, we would love to share more encouraging words with Tony to show the support he has from around, not only our community, but also the United States!
Thanks so much for all the donations, prayers, and well wishes!

In this article, here, Peter acknowledges that it is a big expense for the company to offer free rewards but he says that it is worth it because it helps the consultants.

I would love to have you on my team!

Isn't the view beautiful?
Check out that zip line, wow! There is going to be an adventure on the zip line for those that go to Boot camp on Thursday. I would love to do that however, I think I am going to go down on Friday. This will be the first time that I have left my girls for more than one night. Even when I have left them overnight I get them back the next morning. I will have to suck it up and handle this. I REALLY want to do this for my business, I know it will help me a LOT!
