    Making Paper Eggs

    Posted 8:00 PM 4/18/2014 by My719Mommy Blogger - Brigid

    Eggs lend themselves to be decorated nicely. They are naturally ornamental. Every year we usually make some eggs that can be used as decoration for years to come. When we pull them out every year it's easy to see which ones stand the test of time, and make the cut to be used for decoration.

    Posted 8:29 PM 4/11/2014 by My719Mommy Blogger - Brigid

    Depression in Kids

    Posted 8:00 PM 4/8/2014 by My719Daddy Blogger - Dr. Kurt Perkins

    It's estimated that 1 in 30 kids (youth up to age 18) are depressed.

Honestly, those circumstances have been (More)

    Classic and Fun Outdoor Games for Kids

    Swish Cheese or Mandatory Vaccine Logic...which has more holes?

    Posted 8:00 PM 4/1/2014 by My719Daddy Blogger - Dr. Kurt Perkins

    The vaccine debate grows stronger in Colorado. By debate, I'm referring to the parent's choice to vaccinate vs. the state's mandate to limit and potentially take away a parent's choice. Currently, Colorado has medical, religious, and philosophical exemptions for parents and their children. The (More)
