I'm wanting to do some Christmas baking this year, to give as gifts. I'd like to get started this week, and I'm wondering what your favorite thing to bake at Christmas is - recipes greatly appreciated. Could you please also say if it can be frozen or not?
Hey travelers! How vital and/or effective is an anti-skimming wallet, passport case or bag for international adventures? I've heard mixed things about whether or not typical credit cards are even affected unless used directly in a rigged ATM or at a register - that wireless, RFID skimming is only harmful in cases of stuff like magnetized hotel key cards and so on.
Since my oldest is approaching school age (ok, have two years yet, but it'll go fast!) I have been thinking about schools and programs and where we might send him as we have the public school plus a crazy amount of charter options. I got to thinking about my own elementary education and Workshop Way. There was a group of teachers in my elementary school who used this program and I was in it for 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grades. I have searched the internet, but haven't found much about learning which schools might use the program (I have yet to do full research on the schools in my area, we'll get there) and came upon one video on YouTube that sparked a lot of memories about how the methodology works.
I was curious if any of you have ever heard of it, worked in it, and what your thoughts are?
Also: is there a learning philosophy that you are drawn to or recommend?
