PLANT SOME FUN

It's time to get some mud on your knees and some dirt under your nails. Dig into KinderGarden http://aggie-horticulture. tamu.edu/ kindergarden/kinder.htm This site is full of great ideas to get the family out and growing. Plant a garden to attract butterflies and get tips on raising your own caterpillars, too. Or plant a bird garden, or some vegetable soup! And if Mother Nature is keeping you inside with her watering schedule, KinderGarden keeps the good stuff growing indoors: Build a scarecrow, see what's sprouting in the tropical rainforest, or build your own farm. Once you've got the gardening basics, there are lots of ways to spread the seeds. It's a great way to learn about your community. Can you dig it?

POWER AND POLITICS

From Roosevelt to Reagan, and Kennedy to Clinton, the office of the presidency has been full of passion and personality. At Time and the Presidency, you'll meet the modern presidents, and learn more about the traveling photo exhibit dedicated to this fascinating subject. Make your inaugural visit to http://www. pathfinder.com/offers/presidents/ and step into the Oval Office. The virtual tour lets you get up close and personal with history makers like Johnson, Nixon and Eisenhower while getting the insider's scoop on 20th-century politics. Be sure to check the exhibition's schedule if you want to check out the real deal for yourself.
