I've been using my husband's weights, well the bar to help me keep off the weight that food likes to place on my body. I also, happen to have weak ankles and wrists, so this added stress on my joints can be painful.

Time for some summer fun! That means getting colorful! We have dress-up days where we dress-up, face paint, and now put some fun colors in our hair! Best part is, it all washes off in the kiddy pool later that day!

My kids are young and I'm hoping to build some memories with them. Moments for them to hold onto, like the extra cuddles they get after I treat their bites with Bug Bite Ointment. We put on the Ointment and then they get wrapped up in their towel or blanket for some cuddles with the summer evening breeze blowing on us, the hummingbirds swooping in for a last meal of the day. The little lazy day summer moments that I hope they remember when they are older!

I think it is important as a parent to show your kids as much as the worlds knowledge as you can. For some of us this will mean doing so with knowledge and books. For others, it may mean trips abroad. Regardless one of the most important parts of learning about the world is knowing that communication is important. At home we can teach our kids about communicating through customs, like foods for specific occasions, maybe a way of setting the table, or decorations for a holiday the other culture you are learning about celebrates. Each communicates different ways of respect, joy, sorry, or a broad array of non-verbal communication skills. For those traveling abroad you may want to look into translations services this way you can make sure that you are full exposing your child to the parts of the world you've taken them too! After all, a child isn't brain is so much for receptive than an adults to language opening up those avenues with exposure to properly spoken language while you do will help in opening those language pathways for use later. Regardless of whether you are capable of going abroad or not, all families have in their power the ability to expose their children to all parts of the world. The more you expose your child to today, the further they can go tomorrow!

Feeling heavy today? Blame the sun, literally! Right now between 11 and 1 pm the earth is at the closest point to the sun! This means that the gravitational pull is the strongest during this time. This affects the laws of gravity. At least that's what legend tells us. Which is why the kids and I were able to do a fun experiment!
