A Local Macaroni Kid To Be Proud Of
Here at Macaroni Kid, nothing makes us happier than to help build up a child! Some wise person once said, "It Takes A village To Raise A Child" and that is so very true is it not? It also takes a village to celebrate a child, to cheer for a child and to high five a kiddo who is JUST. MAKING. IT. HAPPEN for himself. WE LOVE today's featured Macaroni Kid 11 year old Shane Treloar who continually inspires us not only with his phenom voice but with his ...

See what PA Distance Learning Charter School has to offer for 2012-2013.
It seems like every day in the news, there are mentions of education funding and budget cuts. Programs that many adults adored, and truly thrived on as students, are the first courses on the chopping block to be eliminated from our childrens’ education. Twenty-first century learners need a holistic education that includes electives courses such as art, music, and physical education. Educators need to think about what actually helps to develop a truly well-rounded individual.
Creating More Meaningful Images Of Your Children & Enjoy A Father's Day Offer
Childhood is fleeting, even though the individual days can seem long, the years are going to fly by. While I absolutely believe that you should try to hire a professional Pittsburgh child photographer periodically while your children grow, it’s also extremely important to remember to capture the everyday.
No one wants to forget that little face looking up with those big brown eyes, their first steps in the sand at the beach, or the first time the training wheels come off.
I’ve compiled a list of quick and ...

We all know fathers and father figures deserve recognition, but what you may not know is how the tradition turned into a national day.
It all started in 1909 with a woman named Sonora Smart Dodd of Spokane, Washington. While listening to a Mother’s Day sermon, Sonora came up with the idea for Father’s Day as a way to honor her father, Henry Jackson Dodd. After having been raised by ...
