5 Ways to Teach Character in Everyday Life #StreamTeam

Even before I had kids I said that I didn’t care if they were the smartest kids in the class, but I wanted them to have good character.  I want to raise the kids that others want to be around and be friends with.  I want my kids to be the ones that volunteer when […]

Lithium Coin Battery Safety

Lithium Coin Battery Safety

I have to admit that we try to be very cautious with things around here, but who would’ve thought about the fact that lithium coin batteries are in greeting cards?  You probably did because you are smarter than me… but man… I never really gave that another thought.  Also, wrapping them in tape before disposing […]

Wordless Wednesday: Mr. Fix-it…

Davis.  He has a ton of energy, but he also has a ton of mechanical want to/know how.  He reminds me of some very special men in my life.  He is pictured above with my father.  You think I could take a few more lessons?
