Thanks for these!! My son came home from school full of information, questions and excitement about MLK yesterday and will be so happy to do some of these over the weekend

This is perfect! My kiddos came home from school this week spouting off all the things they'd learned about Martin Luther King, Jr. I was really glad that their curriculum at school included learning about this very important historical figure. These are great resources to encourage them to keep learning at home!

I really like Chicken Noodle soups! Have to try out your paleo version too.

Sounds like a great thing for your family! I don't know if I could live without pasta - I try to eat it as little as possible and have cut down quite a bit.

My daughter likes to ham it up and probably would not go far onthe show.

Don't laugh! When I first saw the title I thought you were going to talk about how you visited there! This book does sound amazing. I can see why it would be on your bucket list.

Lisa said...
