The kids and I have learned so much about birds during our Bird Unit. I think the neatest thing has been watching the bird feeder which is about 2 feet from our kitchen table. We eat breakfast with the birds. The past 2 mornings a red bellied woodpecker has decided to join us. THAT has been amazing!!

Most people were not just in costume, but they were also living the roles they represented by their words and actions. One guy walked past some people dressed in modern clothes and he said, “What strange vestments!” Continue reading →
A friend of mine posted something similar to the following on his Facebook site: I feel for all you parents who have to deal with your kids during the summer. And there were a few responses that were interesting, but something like this summed up most of them: Yeah, when is fall?
Now at this point, may I ask you, my Reader, a question?
How is it that people wonder why this generation of kids coming up is so disjointed from society when their parents want nothing to do with them?
