Martin Luther King Jr Day






Today, in honor of Martin Luther King Jr

we are asked to join in, contribute, volunteer

in our community, our country.

In short, get off our tush and DO SOMETHING.

Can you feel the leadership? You can go here


to find out how and where you can get involved

if you are not already involved and feel the need

to get to work making things better.

If you are looking for more information

on Mr King for your children,try this.

Princess and I are reading this book




It is also National Popcorn Day,
so we are reading this




We LOVE this book. We will also be making some popcorn.

If you have not seen this site yet,http://www.popcorn.org/index.cfm

you must try it today. Good stuff!!

Now we are going out to play in the snow.

The whole service thing has me vexed. I'm not sure how I can possiblly find the time to make a full commitment with two small (and I might add irratating & crabby)children.

I do want to give more of time to some different organizations that I loved being apart of in high school. I am just waiting for the boys to get a little bigger so they can come along and help.
Great books. I am going to try and find that MLK one at the library tomorrow.

I volunteer so much time in my church that I have no other community time left. My kids help with the county food bank and i help stock our church pantry so I guess I do get a little done.

The service day listings for our area included making a donation to our local Goodwill- so we did. That doesn't seem like much though.
Popcorn book Owen would love.

I found it hard too, so many things
P is too young to be included in.
We donate etc, it's hard to do more. I say more, because I know most of the people who read here, already "do" something.

My homeschool buddies and I are all posting pics of our "home schools" as part of our idea sharing.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
