"Brainstorming" on a school project with my 4-year-old

This week my 4-year-old brought home an assignment from school to disguise a turkey. On a sheet of thick, white paper was Tom the Turkey, and it was up to the kids to disguise him so the Farmer would not find him for Thanksgiving. The instructions said for parents to “brainstorm” with the child about ways to disguise old Tom. “Be creative,” they said. And, “Use a variety of materials.”

A family turning grief into blessing... and how you can help

Dealing with the loss of a child is heartbreaking and devastating, but one local couple chooses to act out in love “to honor the short but precious life” of their little one. Confident that God had a purpose for their child's life, Paul and Kim Zellner decided to do a service project each year. They call it Caleb's Project after their son, Caleb Paul Zellner, and they encourage others to join them.

How my daughter's science fair project is stressing me out

It's science fair time at our school. This is my daughter's first year to participate in the science fair, and boy am I stressed.

Although I went on to get a science degree in college, I never had much success with science fair projects. I always waited too long to start, and I always did a project with plants that proved essentially nothing. As an adult, I have come to accept the fact that my thumb is any color but green. That little tidbit would have come in handy during science fair.

A family mission

So we're out of school all this week,
and so far we've been passing the time in various ways in
anticipation of “the cousins” coming for Thanksgiving. Once “the
cousins” arrive I will not have to figure out things to do to keep
my children busy and myself sane. We get a bit stir-crazy after all.
But there will be plenty of fun with “the cousins.”
