Greetings to all folks near and far.
Colder weather will be heading our way soon. This is a good time to go through your family closets to see who needs new warm jackets, coats, hats, scarfs, gloves, and boots. If you have these old items that no longer fit your children, remember there are needy children who could use them. You can donate the old cold weather clothing to Indian reservations or other agencies who help the needy.
Do your children wonder where some animals go during the winter months? I found a great site to help you teach your children about hibernation in the animal kingdom. Just click on the following link for some amazing information and fun:
Share knowledge with your children.
"O, the pride of the German heart in this noble river! And right it is; for, of all the rivers of this beautiful earth, there is none so beautiful as this. There is hardly a league of its whole course, from its cradle in the snowy Alps to its grave in the sands of Holland, which boasts not its peculiar charms. By heavens! If I were a German I would be proud of it too; and of the clustering grapes, that hang about its temples, as it reels onward through vineyards, in a triumphal march, like Bacchus, crowned and drunken."
- From HYPERION by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1807 - 1882

"You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give."
