Fun (& Free) Things To Do

TOMORROW across the nation, Home Depot sponsors FREE kids' project.  It's the highlight of Daddy and son's first Saturday of the month from 9am to noon.  Tip: go earlier, sometimes they've run out of supplies at our store.

Phoenicians, mark your calendar:

The first Friday of every month is free at the Children's Museum of Phoenix, that's TONIGHT from 6-10pm.

Saturday, March 7 from 11am to 2pm is a special day for children under 6 at the McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park.  This is not (yet) on their website, but in my hands I have a flyer that says there will be game booths, petting zoo, moonalks, face painters among other things.

Sunday, March 29 Gracia Burnham will be speaking in Arizona.  I would highly recommend your family trying to hear her story.  She and her husband, Martin, were kidnapped by terrorists in the Philippines and lived a year in captivity.  They faced near starvation and constant exhaustion as hostages.  Gracia suffered gunshot wounds and Martin was killed when the Philippine military attempted to rescue them from their brutal captors.  I met her in 2004 when her book, In the Presence of My Enemies was released.  She also has a website.

In the morning, at 10:30 she'll speak at Desert Hill Evangelical Free Church in Sun City. 

In the evening at 6:00, you can hear her at Trinity Baptist Church in Mesa.

If you're unable to attend one of the above, get your hands on her book (used copies are only $0.30 on Amazon.)

Thanks for the dustpan recommendation. Those activities and that book sound very interesting. Too bad I don't live close enough to attend those events.
