The upcoming year, 2016, is a special one for They're Our Kids -- it's our 10th anniversary!
We began as the 2006 Leadership Hendricks County group project for Jan Currier, myself (Eric Ivie), Gus Pearcy and Richard Sutton, and the first, very rudimentary, version of TOK went online in November of that year.
TOK has been revised, updated, and expanded countless times since Version 1.0 hit the Internet in 2006, and as we close the door on 2015, we celebrate 137,987 page views and 38,654 unique visitors to the website over the past year! Woo hoo!
This blog, The Village, is the primary source of those page views and unique visitors, and in an effort to determine what information Villagers are most interested in, I investigated which blog posts in 2015 drew the most interest.

New Year's Eve is traditionally celebrated by adults, but parents who want to celebrate the arrival of 2016 with their kids can find some activities right here in Hendricks County.
As I learn about more family-friendly New Year's Eve activities around Hendricks County, I'll be sure to update this blog post. And feel free to fill up the comment section at the end of this post with any activities you think would be a great addition to this list!
The Grinch stole Christmas from students in Plainfield and Danville schools on Dec. 17 when threats of violence were made toward both communities' high schools, resulting in both school corporations closing all of their schools on what would have been the final day of class before Christmas break.
You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch.
However, just like the Who's down in Whoville in Dr. Seuss' Christmas classic, we will prevail. Why? Because a situation like this one makes for an excellent teaching moment with OUR KIDS.
I am a stay-at-home dad, and I’m not ashamed of it. The stigma of being male and staying home with my kids doesn’t bother me, and I firmly believe in the value of active parenting.
There is a growing number of dads staying home with the kids these days, which is great. Being a stay-at-home dad, however, brings with it some unique challenges that aren’t experienced by women who stay at home with their children.
