An anthropologist put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told the children of an African tribe that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he told them to run, they all took each others hands and ran together, then sat together enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they had run like that when one could have had all the fruits for himself they said, "Ubuntu, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?" Ubuntu in the Xhosa culture means "I am because we are." by lakotarose

'This is seriously one of my favorite pictures of Louis and Eleanor. The fact that they are both barefoot, the way the way their feet are both intertwined, their closeness to one another and the the fact that they are in their own little world with each other just gives me so many feels. It doesn’t looked forced at all and Eleanor looks engaged to what Louis is saying. It’s just an all around beautiful picture. ' xx by sharon.smi

If a person doesn’t want to take responsibility for the consequences of their actions, they may try to blame others. Don’t accept blame or try to fix things for them when you’ve done nothing wrong.

Good behavior chart:  I find this is the best and most  effective way to recognize my girls for good behavior or doing required chores. Any time a catch them using manners, getting ready for bed without asking, being nice to each other, feeding animals etc. I drop a bead in their jar.  They can hear the bead if I drop it from a distance so they know instantly that someone did something right.  They get $3 when the jar is full. It works wonders by joyce

A fun sisterhood event. Bought the  first letter of each girls name at Michaels along with different colored paint pens. The girls passed their letter to each other and they wrote something about their friend on their letter that described them. When they got their own letter back it made them talk and laugh and feel special. They even decided to write on the other side too. Then they each took their letter home as a party favor. They loved it! by rosella

Trisha Yearwood's Uncle Wilson's Stuffed Peppers... my grandma has made these for me a few times and there have been times when i have eaten over half a dozen in one sitting. So good. HOWEVER, she mentions in the book that hard boiling the peppers will save time so my gandma tried it and they fell apart when she took them out of the oven and made the dish watery. So, don't hard boil the peppers and eat up! by alisiachan

Great idea for teaching time!  Have each child make one of these.  Give each child a sheet with everyone's name on it.  They walk around and ask their peers, "What time is it?".  Without "telling", they simply show their watch.  Times are recorded on the record sheet.  When each child has "asked" everyone, meet back and check. by keisha

Mermaid Potion:  This make-believe game has each girl at the party signs a contract that they are willing to become a mermaid.  They all drink the magic potion, and them jump in the pool together.  Their tales are invisible to "humans" - only they can see each others' tails.  The contract is a great party keepsake for the birthday girl, too! by batjas88

Original Pin - Have students write their names on the side of a sheet of paper (first or both first and last). Then have them write one simile that describes them for each letter in their name. Kids can decorate them however they like and the acrostic simile poems can be hung above all student's desks for display. Great way to practice using similes! by lee

All of my books mean so much to me as I write them. I fall in love with the couples as they fall in love with each other. But if I did have what some call a "book of my heart", I think it would be this one. Octavia and Ben were with me for nearly a decade before I wrote their love story, and the tale of fear and love that I tell through them drives my heart.  Rogues of the Sea ~ Book #3 by carolyn

When the kids climb into bed, they will find a ticket hidden. The kids are instructed to grab their slippers and head for the car. Upon entrance to The Minivan Express, you hole punch the ticket, and travel around the city looking at all the beautiful lights. by sarahx

The swallow is a bird that chooses a mate for life  and will only nest with that bird and no other.  Therefore a swallow tattoo is also a symbol for  everlasting love and loyalty to the family.  Swallow pairs travel long distances,  only to find their way back to each other at home. That's why I got mine! by Pao Loarte
