You’re at the park with your four year old, enjoying the sunshine, happy to hear the sounds of preschoolers on the playground. The children run from the slide, to the swings, to the monkey bars, and back again. It’s a good day. Then you hear it – a child’s cry, and you know that it’s YOUR child crying. He has tripped and fallen, and busted open his knee just two centimeters from last week’s unfortunate incident with a scooter that got a little too much momentum on the hill. You go to him, pick him up, and sit him down on the picnic table. You grab a band-aid from your bag, lean over, and give his sweet little knee a kiss. He gives you a hug, jumps down, and runs right back to the slide before his tears are even dry. Ah, the power of a band-aid and a mother’s kiss.

HI my name is Savanna and I am the mother of a 3.5 year old with autism. I recently started selling Origami Owl to help to cover costs of his needs as I have to stay home with him (his anxiety is too bad for childcare although he is in the special needs preschool class at an elementary in Hanover).
Hello, Internet! Cole here. It’s been a while since I wrote about a robotics competition, so I’ve decided to write about last month’s FIRST (that is, the name of the organization) World Championships. This year, we didn’t perform as well in District and Regional Competitions as we did last year; however, since we won Championships last year, we were allowed to attend this year’s festivities as well. This time, I rode with the rest of the team on the bus instead of traveling by plane with Dad.
Have you heard of this new trend? Fidget Spinners. I must have been living in the dark these past few months.
I first heard of them abut 2 weeks ago, bought one for our son and THE NEXT day an email was sent home from our school banning them! Well, I still wanted to check them out and see what the rage was all about.
