Breaking The Barriers

During a summer family picnic in 1974, Robbin observes a little league game being played in a nearby baseball field.  Seeing how much fun the game was, and watching the fans cheer for their teams, Robbin asked her dad to teach her to play baseball. As she practiced, over time, Robbin learned that girls were not allowed to play little league baseball with boys. Refusing to give up her dream, Robbin was excited to learn about a famous court case that ruled that same year, that girls were to be allowed to play little league with boys.  The long-standing barrier was finally lifted, and Robbin signed up to play in 1975. A brave and determined Robbin strutted her stuff and showed her community that she could play ball just as well as the boys, on any baseball diamond. Despite encountering jeers, boos, and name-calling from the stands and from the boys, Robbin exceled on the field and played with her head held high for the love of the game.

The Colonel and the Bee

A peculiar explorer and downtrodden acrobat span the globe on a building-sized hot air balloon, in search of a precious artifact and the murderous treasure hunter who seeks it.
Beatrix, a spirited but abused acrobat in a traveling circus, seeks more than her prison-like employment offers. More than anything, she wants to know her place in the world of the halcyon 19th century, a time when the last dark corners of the map were being sketched out and travel still possessed a kind of magic.
One night in Switzerland, the mysterious Colonel James Bacchus attends Beatrix's show. This larger-than-life English gentleman, reputed to have a voracious appetite for female conquests, is most notable for traveling the world in a four-story hot air balloon called The Ox.
Beatrix flees that night to join the Colonel, and the two of them make a narrow escape--Beatrix from her abusive ringleader, the Colonel from a freshly-made cuckold. Beatrix, feeling the Colonel may have the answers to her problems, pledges to help him catch the criminal he seeks in exchange for passage on his magnificent balloon.
The criminal seeks a precious figurine, The Blue Star Sphinx, but he's not alone. The Sphinx's immense value has also drawn the attention of the world's most deadly treasure hunters. A murder in Antwerp begins a path of mystery that leads all the way to the most isolated island on Earth.
What dangers await the Colonel and the acrobat?

Why Can't I Have a Cell Phone Yet?

Everyone has a phone. 
But my hand is all alone.
Why can’t I have a phone yet?
Why is it something I just can’t get?

Why Can’t I, Have a Cell Phone Yet? Is a social story that portrays a young boy who struggles with  the fact his parents won’t allow him to have a cell phone like all the other kids. The boy meets several animals, including a dragon, a cat and an eagle on his journey. The animals help him realize that “maybe” it’s not the right time.  Join him on his “cell phone” journey.  What will the animals teach him?

Technology is changing the way children socialize with others. The boom of social media has completely changed the way we view others and social interactions. Social skills in children need to develop in person face to face before they can develop in cyberspace. It is not uncommon to find a Facebook profile belonging to a six-year-old. Do six-year-olds really need social media? In my personal opinion, NO!
Move over Dr. Seuss, Mary Lee Kendal is in town. During Mary Lee’s years as a teacher, she found the best way to teach was to be “entertaining without being entertainment.”  She saw how children and teens are extremely creative if you just give them a chance.  Kids learn in many different ways.  Some learn through reading, playing, singing, dancing, rhyming, or even drawing. They learn visually, and by writing poetry. They love to creatively express themselves and her classroom was one place they could do that.
So how did she come up with the quirky Dr. Seuss type rhyming books? As a kid she loved to rhyme.  She was always encouraged to write, read, rhyme, play, act, sing, dance, and be as creative as possible by her parents.  She feels her books bring in many of the favorite ways to learn.   Her social stories are meant to be read together aloud with an adult or older sibling and a child bringing the bond between each other even closer.
All of Mary Lee’s social stories are meant to educate in an entertaining way. "If I can help one child feel a little bit better about whom they are; build self-confidenceincrease self-esteem, help them realizethey are not alone, and deal with peer pressure, then I have done what I have set out to do."
Stay Tough Kids!

Lingerie On Fire

As you create sexual energy it will simultaneously discover things around you to attach itself to. Whether your intimate items – lingerie, underwear, panties – are still on your body or tossed on the floor, your sexual energy will be drawn to them. These intimate items become a home to some of the most powerful energy in the universe. After awhile these items become so filled with sexual energy that they need a way to release it into the world. That is the point of Sexy Challenge - Lingerie on Fire.

How can you help these intimate objects release that energy and prepare other items to absorb new sexual energy as you and your lover create it? The answer lies in this challenge. Once you learn the secrets to this power you’ll improve more than just the collection of your sexual energy. Your entire life will begin to transform for the better. You might see your relationship improve. You’ll become more confident. In fact, there will be a sense of power behind everything you do because your sexual energy is flowing free. 
Releasing and redirecting the flow of sexual energy is a team effort. This challenge will help you and your partner create a steady flow of energy moving out and powerfully back into your life.

Once you get into the flow of your sexual energy by learning how to release and recapture it within your intimate apparel, you will become a magnet for abundance in many forms in your life. The 1960s was a time to burn bras as a sign of peace and freedom. Now is a time to set your lingerie on fire in a way that creates abundance, power, excitement, love and yes…freedom.
