Christmas Revels at the Scottish Rite Center

The Christmas Revels at the Scottish RiteCenter in Oakland, Ca has been a family tradition for my son and I for years. this year was extra fun as my son had a friend who was actually in the show! Because of our inside connection, we got to see the set being built, and we helped take down the set and even got invited to the cast party.

Cursive Workbook Recommendation

My son is really enjoying the Carson Dellosa Traditional Cursive book. He likes that it starts easy enough for beginners. Also, it ends with a child writing full paragraphs!
