Mark start of 2013 with fun ideas for kids
This New Year’s Eve, don’t worry about getting childcare. Instead, throw a New Year’s party with kids for your friends and their families.
Chase your dreams
Funny story about how Kimberly Satterfield met her future husband, Carlo Vandetta.
She was dating him even before she met him.
Or so she’d tell friends.
Carlo had just moved across the street. She’s not sure why she did this, but she started telling people they were dating.
Relaxed family time important during holiday
Every year, people lament the commercialization of Christmas, yet few are willing to do anything about it. Christmas displays seem to appear in August. Black Friday’s mad rush only grows madder.
But gifts that truly matter don’t come from a store.
You’ve seen those “soccer kid” or “honor student” bumper stickers on the cars of proud parents.
They’re all well and good, but for Stephanie Graham-Sims, spending time with family is more important for her kids.
Keep kids busy during school holiday break
Entertaining kids can be a tricky business at the best of times, and it’s even more difficult during holidays.
‘Life is good’
Rice changed Belinda Boord and Brad Eagle’s lives.
She had a stopped-up kitchen sink.
Teach children importance of volunteering
During the holiday season, many families might be looking for ways to increase volunteer efforts.
Leaving a legacy
Are you up to a job that’s challenging and interesting at the same time?
You could be a parent. It’s the hardest job you’ll ever love.
Kids can have fun outdoors in winter, too
Just because winter is right around the corner doesn’t mean kids shouldn’t bundle up for some fun outside. Knowing the right outdoor activities for winter days is the first step to having a healthy, active winter.
Sometimes you never know how strong your family is until it’s put to the ultimate test.
Linda and Ken Hebert and their daughter Julie were living in Meraux, St. Bernard Parish, La., when Hurricane Katrina unleashed its violence on the Gulf Coast in August 2005.
