I know with the cold weather in many places, most people aren’t thinking about swimsuits yet. However, the summer season will soon be upon us, and suits are on the racks of many retail stores already.

The Godly Truth About Bikinis – FINALLY Someone Gets It!
The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts.
Growing up in Michigan, I don’t remember hearing the term “Mardi Gras” much. The parades, King Cakes, and purple beads weren’t at all familiar to me.
No, in MI Fat Tuesday is lovingly referred to as “Paczki Day”, thanks to the large Polish population found in and around Hamtramck. Pronounced “poonch-key”, these rich little jelly or custard filled doughnut-like pastries are definitely worthy of their own holiday.
Unfortunately, for all the years I spent in Kentucky, I never saw a single Paczki. I guess we were close enough to Louisiana that only Mardi Gras was recognized. BUT, here in Colorado, they apparently know a sweet opportunity when they see one. I saw these tasty treats advertised, and immediately set out pick some up.
If you’re committed to introducing new foods the way we are, this is a good chance for your kids to be exposed to something new. If you’re a homechooler, you can totally use this chance to ignore the ### calories, and call it an educational experience.
You can find out more about Paczkis at this about.com page where they even have a video on how to make them. Enjoy!
