*Dr. Laura reads an, "email of the day" during each podcast. The other day I thought the email was so fitting considering what I've observed in the classroom related to Smartphones. Read it here... (it's super short).
*Along with the little treat/activity the kids open each day for Advent, we also read from a book I bought entitled, Unwrapping the Greatest Gift. While I like that it has a good chunk of scripture to read each day (along with the book passage), I'm not sure I would buy it again. The author is VERY descriptive to the point of almost overdoing it (if that makes sense). But I still am glad to have something for us to read each day that prepares the kids for Christmas and celebrating Jesus' birth.
*A couple years ago a friend and I took our kids to the Pennypickle's Workshop, which is a museum in Temecula. We weren't THAT impressed (especially considering how far away it was). Lately, for some reason, Cam had been asking to go again. We decided to make the trip today and the kids enjoyed it so much more. It was worth the hour drive this time. :)
