"Don't Be Hungry" Box

Our "Don't Be Hungry" box is a wonderful way for children to take part in sharing with others with those who are hungry and homeless.

"... and a little child shall lead the way."

One day, the kids and I were running errands when we came to a stop light where a hungry and homeless man was standing and asking for change. Normally, I'd grab some coins to give, but didn't have anything in our usual spot. I started fumbling around to find more change when he decided to move on down the line of cars. Before I could catch…

Fostering an Attitude of Gratitude in our Families

With the holidays approaching and Thanksgiving right around the corner, this is a great time to teach our children how to be thankful.  When I first became a parent, I thought my child would learn with ease how to not only say “thank you” but also be thankful.  Ahem…I have to say, it didn’t seem to come as easy as I thought it should.  When I began to hear myself repeating “Say, thank you” or “What do we say?” after someone would give my daughter a gift or do a nice act for her, I…

Elijah and the Ninja Skills

Around Lape Haven, we kind of love silly. We thrive on imagination and creativity. We choose birthday party themes based on how costume-friendly they are. (We really do.)

Easy Bookmark Craft for Kids

Establishing a love of reading can be tricky sometimes. Children who would rather run around and be active physically may not see the "fun" in exploring through a story... at first. The key is to choose books that speaks specifically to their interest and personality. Allow them to select which books stand out to them - superheroes, all things locomotives, comedies, comics, holiday themed, etc. As they become excited about what they're reading, they'll want to do it more! Go a step further…

To the Parents of the Missing Boy:

toddler-390535_640

You don’t know me and I don’t know you, but yesterday, I was looking for your little boy.  We had been swimming at a hotel down the beach from yours when a security guard entered the pool and asked for all of the parent’s attention.  There was a little boy, only three years old in a bathing suit bottom without a shirt, who had wandered away on the beach.  My heart sank. We were to keep our eyes open.

The hair raised on my arms and on the back of my neck and I felt…
