Our Little Helmet Head

Our Little Helmet Head

We are nearing the end of our helmet journey and I am ready to look back and see where we’ve been.  Our little Rainbow Baby had none of the issues you would expect for ending up in a DOC band.  I was an experienced mom who went into birth determined that, come hell or highwater,…

Read “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” with me

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain is one of those great classics that you can read at different stages of life and get something different from it each time you read.  I have heard others speak of reading it as an adventure story as a child, a commentary of slavery as a young…

Reading the Federalist Papers with Me (Part 2)

Reading the Federalist Papers with Me (Part 2)

Let’s dig into a couple of the meatier Federalist Papers! One of the most often quoted in Federalist No. 51. Let’s pull that up on The Avalon Project. The first two paragraphs lay out the ideal situation, then the reason it is not practical.  It then establishes why government is necessary.  The author states, “In framing…
