The Nots At The End Of Our Rope: #4 Not Now

The Nots At The End Of Our Rope: #3 Not Me

“One, two, three, Not It!” That’s how we settled things on the playground. If we needed to decide who would push the merry go round or the swing or any other undesirable servant task we played, “not it.” The last one to say, “not it” was, indeed, incorrect.

The Nots At The End Of Our Rope

Puns are considered the lowest form of humor. You may call me a Cretan but I like them. They make me laugh. They make me groan. Sometimes they make a point. If you ride the waves of the Internet you’ll find that Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, Franklin Roosevelt, Benjamin Franklin, and even Abraham Lincoln [...]

Why Taking Your Child’s Phone May Be One Of The Best Things You Ever Do

My son had his phone taken away for the last four weeks and it was awesome! I won't get into the details of why we took the phone. We all parent differently and the reason has nothing to do with this post. If you know him, please don't ask him about it or mention it. [...]

TORCH 2016 The Ladies of TORCH Day 7

TORCH 2016 The Ladies of TORCH Day 5

Today we started out not really sure what the day would hold. We are usually informed of the options available the night before but did not get that information. We got ready thinking we were going to the hospital today but were told going down to breakfast that the options were to help at the [...]
