Where did you eat lunch?

I just learned that the Yakima Health District posts their monthly inspection reports on their website. Way to go, Yakima County for using technology. Check out the Restaurant Inspection Scores next time you're thinking of eating out. For homeschooling purposes, all of the food handling guidelines are on their site, and it's a great safety lesson, for health & science.

Incidentally, the Healthy Youth Survey that I mentioned once before also posts their assessment on the same website. The site has since, been remodeled, though, and I don't know if they left their filenames intact. Enjoy.

Red Art Gallery

Well, I have spent more time at Red Art gallery during the past few weeks than ever before. If you haven't participated in any of the art classes there, you're missing out. They offer a homeschool art program, plus after school art classes. The art classes were fun, I have 4 kids participating, ages 5-15 and each of them had a great time. Check out the Red Art Gallery. It's owned by a homeschooling mom named Mindy, a former school teacher and all-around amazing gal. I heard that on Fridays they offer pre-school art playgroup time. All we need now is mom's studio time.
