With the whole having kids classes or tracks, you really need to make the class super engaging and exciting and try to have the kids interact through things like discussion models and moving around.

Thanks for being you, Elyse.  I re-read on your blog  about not only a Great Grand parent [4x removed] but a SEX discrepancy!  -  WE called him AVA for years, but wondered if it was a typo.  WE finally found HIS grave marker for ARA CUMMINGS DOWNER, and completed my personal search.   DRD

Don't ever apologize for the way your husband spoils you - you both love each other and it is your prerogative to enjoy the treats from your husband.

I had to make my planner 8.5 x 11 and I love it.  It fits everything I need in it - including my lesson plans and so far, it is perfect.  I bought my planner pages from Etsy, bought lesson plan pages from Etsy too, and so far, it's all working out.  It gives me all the space I want to write to my heart's content.

One of my dreams is to one day run a Kids Camp at a genealogy conference and have it be more than just a Boys Scout or Girls Scout badge and more for getting kids involved in history and genealogy and family history.

+Elyse Doerflinger I'm with you there.  There is a huge benefit in knowing where you come from.  

An understanding of what the generations before you have achieved is proof that you can do it also. 

It also has the capacity to brings generations closer.  That can only be a good thing!

In the 1900 Census, I found my Family.  I 'borrowed' the Microfiche, and now I can find it online with an archived version where I can turn the pages by clicking my mouse.  When I hit the wall, Elyse helped me stumble on, until I found my 'lost' Gr-Grandfather.
The Downers of America, from the 1600 Puritans, and about 14 generations.  Thanks, E.

I loved your story about the Container Store - while I love that place, I don't buy stuff there unless it is something I can't find elsewhere.  So true about the $ guilt for spending that kind of cash on bins - that you can get at the Dollar Store or Target or a bazillion cheaper places.

Elyse, is there anyway to NOW correct or verify a name spelling?  [or sex]  form the Census of long ago?  [I still have Harriet Thatcher from Canada] as the wife of Zaccheus II.]
Julia Ann Downer and Ara [not Asa or Ava] are Sister and BROTHER.]  He later married Amelia Peters, then Emma Thompson.  -  Harry Augustus and Hattie were born to Amelia.  [page 94] in The Downers of America.

The votes are in and it is time to announce a winner.  It was a close race, but the winner is... Watching the Bison!  I just love this picture with the old car, the bison in the background, and the fact that he is sitting on top of the car to watch them.  Read all the photo details here: http://www.wikitree.com/photo/jpg/Suter-100

Introduction
My name is Elyse Doerflinger.  I am a 23 year old college student at California State University Dominguez Hills and I am studying to become an elementary school teacher.

Aside from my passion of education, I also love genealogy and family history.  I have been researching my family tree for about 8 years now.  I enjoy sharing my knowledge about genealogy on my blog, through speaking at genealogy events, and writing for genealogy publications.  I have written two e-books and created a video recording of one of my lectures.
