The WAH Juggling Act

While I was working out this morning, I was wondering how the women that have more than one child, home school, wah and run their households do it.  I sometimes feel like I’m fighting a losing battle.  I get up an hour earlier than my husband and son, so I can get a workout in […]

Apple-Walnut Bars Recipe

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: April 29, 2008 | Categories: Around The house

I love easy and healthy desserts!  This Apple-Walnut Bars recipe comes from a local restaurant, Miss Olivia's Table.  I changed the recipe to whole wheat flour, turbinado sugar and the egg substitutes for my family.  I try not to eat white or refined foods whenever possible and make my own substitutions when warranted.  Apple-Walnut Bars […]

Holocaust Rememberence Day (May 2nd)

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: April 27, 2008 | Categories: Education

Holocaust Remembrance Day is May 2nd.  This can be an excellent opportunity to teach your children about the Holocaust.  I will be concentrating mainly on the K-4th grade levels, with emphasis on 1st grade, as that is the level I will be working at with my son.  This topic is a good time to teach […]

Pierre, The Tux Wearing Penguin

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: April 26, 2008 | Categories: In The News

This is totally coincidental, but after posting my BeShirtHappy 'Penguin' designs, I find this article.  It is about Pierre, a 25 years old African penguin, that was going bald.  This left him with an embarrassingly exposed, pale pink behind.  Unlike marine mammals, which have a layer of blubber to keep them warm, penguins rely on […]
