Keep Hydrated During Summer Break with Pickle Juice

As summer winds down, and we get ready to send our kids back to school in the fall, some of you might be squeezing every last drop out of summer. Maybe you're putting your kid on the back of your bike, or pushing them in a jogging stroller. Or maybe you're like me, and are just as active but it is much hotter now that you have some free time before or after work. Whatever the case, be sure to keep you and your family hydrated! Water is great, we all know this. But let's take a moment to discuss a drink that is somewhat of a well-known secret: pickle juice.

Feeding Your Kid's Curiosity with a Podcast

The WiFi was down in my household yesterday. Once the kids returned from summer care for the day and raided the pantry for a snack, I told them instead of turning on a show I want them to listen to something. I put my phone on the table in the back room and played the latest episode of Wow in the World through Stitcher. I went back to check on them, and saw my daughter drawing and my son sitting on the couch with his bowl of Chex Mix. I asked them, "What do you think of the radio program?" Both were quick to respond. The younger daughter told me, "It's good!" and the older son expressed his surprise about the topic discussed. Wow in the World has since been requested while driving to summer care.
