My daughter has been chomping at the bit to learn how to sew. I think I was a little intimidated (remembering back to how many times I messed up my mom's machine when she taught me so many years ago) so I kept putting it off. It seemed like a much better summer activity and when summer finally rolled around she was more than excited to get...

I love the movie Nanny McPhee.  She becomes a nanny to a family with very naughty children and teaches them to "behave".  My girls love it when I say "behave" in my silly British Nanny McPhee accent. I decided to write this post because this summer I have been noticing some bad manners in my house and I wanted to fix them ASAP. Just tonight...

It's been a hot summer here in the northwest. The days have been blistering hot, and although it's mostly dry heat, I sometimes feel like I'm going to melt into a puddle on the sidewalk. Something that always gets me in the summer is getting ready for the day. I love a really hot shower, but in the hot months I try and change to a more tepid...

A few months ago my son had his eighth birthday. One of the gifts, from my sister who is working close to Zion National Park, was an excavation kit. I had never seen one before, and when we opened the box we saw some small tools and a brick of sandy plaster. My eight-year-old went to town and stayed consumed with the excavation kit for four...

  Oh say can you see by the dawn's early light,What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,Gave proof through the night that our flag was still...

The greatest game of baseball ever played happened while we were vacationing on the warm sandy beaches of California. We played in the waves and sand all day! As the hours passed we forgot to pull out our fat bat and wiffle balls! We had also picked up a few baseball gloves from HomerunMonkey.com. It wasn't until the sun set, and we went to...

A few weeks ago I went to a friend's house and got a tour of her lovely backyard. Nestled in the gorgeous flowerbed was a tiny house with a stone path and a small arbor, a few little toadstools and a teeny tiny bouquet of flowers. I asked my friend and she told me it was her granddaughter's fairy garden, a fun little something they do together. I...

Would you like to tell your kids something once and have them listen? Tired of the yelling?  Tired of the whining?  Tired of being tired?  You’re not alone.  From toddler temper-tantrums to teenage talking back, parents wonder what it takes to get kids to cooperate.  If you’re tired of nagging, reminding and yelling to get kids to...
