I think a fun experiment would be to make educated adults take the ACT test and see how they do. And by “fun” I, of course, mean painful and eye-opening and embarrassing. Because, although both my husband and I hold master’s degrees and graduated with honors, helping our daughter study for her second go ’round […]

Like most families who aren’t Amish, hiding in a bunker or employees of Nickelodeon, our family loves Disney movies. Princesses, beasts, witches, sea-urchins, talking jungle animals – we love them all.  In 1995, Disney blew our minds with Toy Story.

I know I’ve mentioned before that the Things are theatre kids. In fact, I wrote about the ups and downs of auditioning a few months ago when Thing 2 had just auditioned for Annie and for the first time experienced the heartaches of rejection (sort of).
