Though we currently homeschool, we nominated our old school, Robey Elementary. Robey is a fantastic school that nurtures children and offers many opportunities for gifted students.

Even though we were moving from the district, my son was still offered the opportunity to attend the gifted program.

As a preschooler attending their preschool program, they quickly recognized his strengths and often allowed him to work and play at his own pace. In kindergarten, once again his abilities were nurtured. Then, in first and second grade, he was able to study his special interests in more depth. This kept him interested in school, as he was beginning to hate it due to boredom.

"I already know that." And, he did... We're so thankful the school was paying attention.

Chicago Style Hot Dog Bites

I made this as a light dinner one night and we were all pleasantly surprised. My kids, of course, loved it because it was made with hot dogs. My husband and I looked at the recipe and weren't so sure. This would be great as a snack or an appetizer for a kids party or any kids gathering, plus the kids could have fun helping put it all together.

2 pkg (12 oz) flaky buttermilk biscuits (Don't Use Grands style biscuits, they are to doughy. I learned this the hard way)
2 tsp poppy seeds (I just omitted them altogether)
3 hot dogs
2 small whole dill pickles or 1/2 cup coarsely chopped(I used dill relish)
1 small onion
2 plum tomatoes or 1 roma
4 oz sharp cheddar cheese shredded
1/4 Cup yellow mustard

Preheat oven to 400.  Pull apart biscuit layers horizontally in half to form 40 biscuits. Arrange biscuits over Large Round Stone or any round pizza pan or you can also use the large bar pan, overlapping as necessary. Sprinkle with poppy seeds and bake 13-15 min or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, cut hot dogs in half lengthwise then crosswise into 1/4 in thick half moons. Place hot dogs into small micro-cooker or any microwave safe bowl, microwave covered on high for 30-45 seconds or until hot.  Coarsely chop pickles and onions using food chopper.  Blot excess moisture from pickles using paper towels.  Seed and dice tomatoes.  Combine pickles, onions and tomatoes in a bowl; mix well and set aside.  

Removing baking stone from oven to cooling rack, top biscuits with hot dogs and cheese. Bake 3-4 min or until cheese is melted.  Remove from oven; top with vegetable mixture and drizzle with mustard.

Marshmallows make great sensory games for children.

How to play Sensory Marshmallow Game

  • Open up a bag of mini-marshmallows and spread them in the center of a cloth covered table. Give every kid a cup and a straw. (The teenage counselors liked it too.)

  • Start with a stop-watch to increase the excitement. Let the Marshmallow Games begin!  Ready, Set, Go!  It is a race to see who can suck up the most marshmallows and place them in their cup.  No hands allowed. Suck and hold until you drop into the cup.

  • I quickly realized no stop-watch was needed and let them play until all marshmallows were gone. We counted who had the most.  The winner got stickers and candy and everyone else got to eat the marshmallows!

Aren't marshmallows fun?
