I was asked this very question last Saturday, and to be perfectly honest, I don’t quite know why weddings are more fun than homecomings. I’m going to attempt to walk myself through this; bear with me friends. I’ve been to weddings and homecomings. I’ve enjoyed them both, probably about the same, but there’s just something about weddings that puts them a notch above homecoming, or so my gut tells me.
Where do koalas live? How many people live in China? What is Kenya’s official motto? What is Missouri’s state bird? Find the answers to these questions and more at the Colbern Road Branch's next installment of the Homeschoolers @ the Library series.
Do you like to color with crayons, paint, or take pictures? These are just a few techniques you can use in quilt making. If you have ever gone to a quilt show or to a quilt shop, you have probably seen some of these techniques.
MCPL now has a new webpage for homeschool information (Homeschoolers @ the Library is the new name for Discovery Club). The webpage includes information on events and online resources. The Raytown Branch will host two events: Arctic Express November 10 and This Your New Year on December the 8th.
This morning, at 6:15 AM, my eyes popped open and I cried, "NaNoWriMo!"
Of course, I made the obligatory rounds. I called my groggy mother who said, "That's nice dear." I texted all of my fellow WriMo friends to encourage them, and I got on Facebook and spammed those who were smart enough not to give me their phone numbers. I am PUMPED! I am READY! I am... PREPARED? Not so much.
Recently, my family and I traveled to Wisconsin to take a short vacation, and used the library’s resources to help us on our journey! We go to Wisconsin at least once a year to visit family, but also take the time to enjoy the scenery. We have visited the Wisconsin Dells and The House on the Rock.
I signed up for a Mango foreign language class about a year ago. After a few months, life changed, and I wasn't able to keep up. But recently, I decided to begin again. My account is still open, which makes it so easy to jump right back in. It should be a lot of fun if I just keep doing a little bit each day.
Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the crisp air, the brilliant red and yellow maples, the amazingly clear blue skies and the anticipation of Thanksgiving. I look forward to the simplicity of this holiday—a chance to reflect and be thankful for all that we have including those we love. And of course, the food!
