0 Adventures of the Yellow School Bus | "Go Make Memories!" | Text and Photos by Candice Granger

We used to camp every year when I was growing up.  Inks Lake, just outside of Marble Falls, is where we would frequent every summer up until I was 13. I learned a lot in one week each year. I learned how to swim in that lake and I gained enough courage to jump off a cliff at that lake. I fished, skied and watched my parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents cook, laugh and tell stories around a fire. I think I might have even tasted my first beer at Inks Lake (now that I am a parent, I think that was a bit young!) But that time spent with my entire family gave me confidence that enabled me to spread my wings and fly into adulthood. They gave me a sense of belonging and made me feel like if I failed at whatever I was pursuing, I would I have a safety net of “the family” to fall back on. Of course, I didn’t know that at the time. I thought everyone had a ginormous family that loved them and got together every Sunday and played Bunco once a month. Now that I am all grown up I realize, geez, how lucky was I?

0 Let's Chat | "Cursive No Longer Taught in Most Schools...What do you think?"

"Dear Friends: With elementary grade age granddaughters, I am disappointed that cursive writing is being removed from core curriculums. Across the nation, cursive writing is being taken out of public education in favor of keyboard/typing skills only. According to USA Today, "At least 41 states do not require public schools to teach cursive reading or writing."

I am worried about the effects of not being able to read historical documents as well as eliminating the benefits it has on fine motor-skill development, hand-eye coordination, etc. I was curious what others thought on the subject. Thanks, P.F."
