A Poem for Sunday: I Continue to Dream by Langston Hughes

I had another poem scheduled to share with you today but my heart broke last night with the news of the Trayvon verdict and that poem no longer worked for how I was feeling so I thought I would share this Langston Hughes one with you instead.

I Continue to Dream
I take my dreams and make of them a bronze vase
and a round fountain with a beautiful statue in its center. And a song with a broken heart and I ask you: Do you understand my dreams? Sometimes you say you do, And sometimes you say you don’t. Either way it doesn’t matter. I continue to dream.

Easter Crafting Projects for Kids from Better Homes and Garden

image Bottle-Cap Chick Napkin Rings Kids will love helping out with setting the Easter table — if it means they get to make these adorable napkin rings! To make, paint a bottle cap yellow and let dry. Use a black paint marker to add eyes and a small orange triangle of paper for the beak. Add a yellow feather to the back of the bottle cap, and glue the chick to a piece of wide ribbon about 4-1/2 inches long. Glue a second smaller ribbon to back to tie the napkin ring together.
