Summer is HERE! Well, I know it’s been summer for a while in lots of places, but here in Alberta I can finally say it’s REALLY summer!! And while we do not limit our barbecuing to just summer weather (we have been known to grill all or part of our Christmas dinner!), we sure do grill a LOT in the summer. It gets too hot in the house to cook, and there’s nothing like grilled venison steaks eaten out under the shade of our apple trees in the backyard! MMM mmm good! Are you like […]

Tweens with Acne like Clearasil #PerfectaWash

Acne – it was something I hadn’t really thought about bumping into while raising my own kiddos. Of course, both my Sweetie and I have experienced our share of ‘blemishes’ in our lives, and not just during our teen years. I know my Sweetie used a special prescription soap or cream through the end of his high school years, into University and even after we got married. And there are days when I still feel like a pubescent teenager, connecting the newly erupted dots on my face.  But, strangely enough, I’d never thought about having […]

I have 3 active tweens – 1 is a soccer goalie with lots of training going on right now, 1 is just a busy growing boy, and the oldest is a beautiful young lady on the verge of being a teenager. Their bodies are growing fast, and I’m always looking for a good supplemental vitamin that is both beneficial to their bodies and enjoyable for them to take. Enter: IronKids! My kiddos are all getting big enough where they are kind of growing out of liquid and chewable kid’s medicines. But I thought I’d give […]

Having grown up in the Southern United States, I’m well aware of the prejudices that still grip the people in that region even to this day. I was not aware of how recently slavery was still a part of life in the deep south, though. Robert Sadler was a product of the post Emancipation Proclamation era of slavery.
