Dear Supporters,

This has been a terrific summer for Our Milk Money, and we are even more excited to dive into what lies ahead in the next several months! When I think of all the things we are accomplishing together, and the cooperative efforts that occur between those that contribute in some way to the organization, I can't help getting a little teary eyed. For so many of our brilliant members, taking that leap of faith into becoming self-employed was one of the scariest things they've ever done. The Parents of the Our Milk Money Organization are some of the most heroic and spirited people we've had the pleasure of knowing, and they should be commended for their courageous efforts to provide for their families. It is our genuine pleasure to connect you to these fantastic individuals months after month.

Thank you for supporting us, and supporting our families!

Kid Kwotes

 I peeled an orange for my son, Braden and put it on a plate for him on the kitchen table while he was on the couch watching TV. Then I told him, "Braden, there is an orange here with your name on it." He got up off the couch very enthusiastically, and ran over to the table where the orange was. After a moment of looking very confused, he looked up and asked, "where is my name?"
My son Mason, 4 1/2, is very into Star Wars these days. Yesterday, the convo went like this:
Mason: "What's Obi Wan's name? Obi Wan Kenobi?"
Daddy: Very good, Mason, that's it!
Mason: "Well, what's Obi Two's name?"

Tip of the Month

Don’t store your bananas in a bunch or in a fruit bowl with other fruits. Separate your bananas and place each in a different location. Bananas release gases which cause fruits (including other bananas) to ripen quickly. Separating them will keep them fresh longer.
