It's that time of year again, school is in session and classes are starting.  My son became a big 1st grader today!  He was so excited to start back.  Summer is always so much fun, but he was ready to get back and see all of his friends and I can't wait to see how much he learns this year.  It's amazing how much they take in.  From just one year of kindergarten he is already reading and writing - love it!

Not only is he starting school, but he is also playing his first year of soccer.  I love that our community offers sports to kids at such a young age. I think being on a team teaches our youth so much -- Team work, encouragement and long lasting friendships.

I will encourage my kids to do their best in whatever they choose to do in life.  That's why today I am excited to introduce you to a neat product that will Inspire,Encourage, and Motivate ...

It's a product called

QUOTEYAK was founded in 2011 by two moms - Nadia Breuer Sopher and Michele Newman. Their product QUOTEYAK was created to promote inspiration, encouragement and motivation through the words of both historical and contemporary role models.  Quoteboards, which combine the motivational words of influential figures with striking, colorful design allow individuals of all ages to surround themselves with positivity as they pursue what they love to do and become who they aspire to be.  Arranged in collections tailored to specific strengths and interests, QUOTEYAK celebrates our strengths.

QUOTEYAK is available in the following collections:  I am a ScholarI am an Athlete,I am a writer, I am a LeaderI am a Performer and I am an Artist.

We chose the "I am an Athlete" tin for review.  The Athlete Tin will inspire anyone from Little Leaguers's to professionals.  The Quoteboards include words from Hall-of-Famers such as Wayne Gretzy and Babe Ruth and is dedicated to recognizing teamwork and personal strength not only as they apply to sports, but to any area of life!

Jace is holding the I Am An Athlete Tin -- he is an athlete and we have already shared some of the quotes with him.  We are going to put these in the boys' room and hopefully as they grow they will start to appreciate the quotes and understand what they mean!

Grady is holding a Quoteboard that reads
 "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take"  -Wayne Gretzky

Jace is holding one that says
"You must be present to win" -Alex Rodriguez

Other inspiring quotes in the I am an Athlete Collection are:

"Every strike brings me closer to the next home run" -George Herman "Bath Ruth"

"I've worked too hard and too long to let anything stand in the way of my goals.  I will not let my teammates down and I will not let myself down" -Mia Hamm

"To be a champ, you have to believe in yourself when nobody else will" -Sugar Ray Robinson


We think these are just so neat.  The quotes will give kids hope, confidence and will make them believe that if they set their mind to something, then they can definitely achieve it!  These are not just great for kids, they are really great for anyone needing a little pick-me-up!!  

It's never too late to stop believing in yourself and following your dreams.  

These would be a great gift for someone starting school, college, sports or anyone needing a little inspiration, encouragement and motivation in their lives!
