9.      Five minutes of tiding up- Okay. Here us out on this one. Clutter is stressful. Thinking about having to clean the whole house is overwhelming. You know what though?

10.   That thing you’ve always wanted to do… You know what I’m talking about- That little idea you have poking you in the back of your mind. The one that's been pestering you to come to fruition for years. There is no time like the present to start making it a reality. "Never give up on a dream just because if the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway." - Earl Nightingale

Pouches' Community Corner

Pouches Visits the Past


If Pouches' experience at History Camp is any indication, your son or daughter will enjoy joining Washington Heritage Museums and the George Washington Foundation for History Camp in Fredericksburg. The week-long day camp will be held June 25-29, from 9:00 a.m. to noon each day.

Young historians discover American history with hands-on experiences as they walk in the footsteps where the history of Fredericksburg, and a budding America, was created. The camp complements the history taught in classrooms with activities such as soap making, code breaking, colonial crafts, penmanship and much more.
