Do your elementary age children know much about history?
If they are like most, the answer is "probably not".
A lot of schools are feeling a time crunch, as they struggle to teach subjects that are required and tested by their state. Since history is not one of those subjects, sadly it often gets left out. But from my perspective, history is one of THE MOST IMPORTANT subjects for our children to learn.
This is the remarkable story of an 18 year old Jewish forger during World War II. The way he took personal responsibility for so many is inspiring, and it makes us take a moment to think about how much we actually care about others.
The link below contains both an article, and the actual link to the original video.
And this link will take you to his daughter's TEDx talk about him.

Do you know Mel?
If not, you should. She's great. She is one of the most important people in my life and I haven't even met her. (Um, that sounds pretty stalker-ish, doesn't it?)
Let me re-phrase that. Mel is an important asset to my ego.
See, I like food. Really, really good food without weird ingredients. And I make food to make people happy. And I make really, really great food so people can tell me how awesome of a cook I am. Therefore, the recipes I use need to be great, no-fail, and make me look amazing. (Humility is a virtue I'm still working on. ) ;)
Check, check and double check: Mel fits the bill every time.
As parents, we want our family to work well together as a team. Additionally, many of us help kids on formal teams in various ways. But sometimes, our kids aren't catching the vision. To help us all teach our kids about teamwork, I've gathered some of my favorite Youtube videos that have helped me as I have worked with children's teams. Additionally, I have included some discussion suggestions/bullet points. Use one, or use them all. Good luck and have fun!

My oldest daughter is turning 14 in just a few days. As we get closer to her birthday, I keep thinking how grateful I am for all the lessons we have learned together.
In honor of her special day, I’m sharing with you how to create a Birthday Party With Meaning (and no presents).
Hi, I'm Jen! I adore chocolate, I'd rather read than clean my house, and I haven't seen my abs in I-don't-know-how-long. But I love my husband and kids to death and try to Raise The Good within myself and my family by making wise and uplifting media choices and having a deliberate family culture. You are probably doing the same thing. Let's share what works with each other!
