Yup! Once again, I found myself running around trying to find an item for my kid's class presentation - that I'd just been told about 20 minutes before school!  In this case, he needed a little toy train as a prop.  Apparently, it was a book report for "Freedom Train".  As I frantically dashed around the house, it dawned on me...

After the catastrophe, chaos, and candy of the holidays, it's time to start the New Year!  And, if you're like me, you'll probably be recovering for several weeks.  That, and figuring out the gadgets you bought for the kids that for some reason are only partially working.  These, of course, are the gadgets that came second fiddle to the main gadgets(Nintendo Switch or Fitbit possibly??)  which had to be frustratingly fixed and trouble-shot in the days(week!) immediately following Christmas.  But now, here we are...

As the holidays arrive, and we're buried in the hustle and bustle - its time to wish each and everyone all the very, merry best for the Holidays!!  Unfortunately, it ALSO means surviving the kids at home for the next two weeks!!!!   To survive, we decided we could put the kids to good use, outside!...
