    I found your website and really liked your Easter crafts, which I’m hoping to do with my son this Easter. Thank you for the suggestions…they’re great! I also wanted to tell you about a website that’s great for information about dinosaurs, from a creationist point-of-view. It’s called, “Answers in Genesis.” I highly recommend going to their website to find out the truth about dinosaurs. It’s been a blessing to our family, and we even visited the Creation Museum in Kentucky 2 years ago. It’s a great place for all ages. Our son really loved it. He was 4 years old, at the time. I just felt that I should tell you about this website.

    Thanks, again.

    In Christ’s love,
    Lori Stevens

      Thanks, Lori! I’ve heard that is a great museum. We haven’t yet been that way, but hopefully when the girls are a little older, we’ll make a road trip!

      Thanks so much for stopping by! :)
