Most people with kids think of themselves as pretty good parents. After all, you love your kids more than anyone in the whole world does – besides God himself. Surely if you love your kid, you can’t be all wrong, right? We hope that because they love us back, they can forgive any errors we […]

OK. So you may not like musicals. I can understand that. I’ve seen some doozies in my time. That may be why you haven’t seen Les Miserables. At least that’s what I have heard from some of my friends. So let me try to convince you that you need to give it a chance. Don’t […]

We went to see the new animated alien adventure movie, “Escape From Planet Earth” at the theaters this week. I had seen the preview and it looked really cute. I wasn’t disappointed.

The last time we studied the Medieval Times, my kids were in the very beginning of Elementary. Those days were so precious. I look back on them and shake my head at how fast these ‘students’ of mine have grown up into mature young people. We had such fun doing hands-on things like crafts and […]
