…ad Calories. I consumed them all in a matter of weeks. Each book provided me with an ah-ha moment. Here are the main philosophies I adopted (over time) and try to adhere to whenever possible: Eat LOTS more vegetables. Reduce carbohydrates, mainly wheat. Reduce processed food. Eat organic.

From Bullies to Besties: Navigating the Social Landscape of School

September 16, 2014

To help make the time go faster, we’ve been busy getting our hands on all things “Frozen.” We streamed the soundtrack via Hoopla, and then put our name on the holds list for the CD. We checked out “Frozen: The Essential Guide”, and since…
