Next, Nancy Marasco drops by again to let us know about the Space Flight Adventure Camps held at the Virginia Space Flight Academy in Wallops Island.

Are you planning an Easter Egg hunt this weekend? We discuss an Easter egg hunt ruined by competitive parents. Next, does it make sense to "ban" things at school? Finally, we introduce our "Mother of the Month" contest!
