Good morning readers. I hope you're having a great summer so far. We've been taking the kids all over, to family or friends' pools or lakes, and also last week we went to Michigan's Adventure (theme and water park). It's been a blast, and we've got a few more things planned, but after being on the go so much, the idea of settling down this fall to begin our homeschooling adventure and new routine sounds really good right now. We're only at the tail end of July, so I probably shouldn't feel this way yet. Anyone feel the same way? Maybe it's because I know that our summer fun won't really have to end when school begins, we'll still have the freedom to pop over to Lake Michigan on a warm September or October day when we want to!
- In September I'll be flying again (more on that later) and I've been thinking about all of the ways that I'm Not Normal, especially when traveling, and I'm wondering… Have any of you had trouble opting out of the cancer machines when you travel lately? As you'll read in that post (click on I'm Not Normal), it was no big deal for me. But some have had a rough time and I'm curious to know what your experience has been?
- I wanted to tell you about something so cool… My friend, Chris, sent the info last week about their new summer farm camps. That in itself is awesome, but even better is this: they're serving only GAPS friendly meals! If you have a GAPS kid and never thought they could go to summer camp, well now they can!

- Have you checked out my seafood sponsors lately? Their prices are 20-40% less than other online sellers, and their stuff is sustainably caught and delicious! I'm going to write more on this in a post, soon.
- Thank you Kate who sent this article, Should Milk Be Taken Off the School Menu?, with these comments: If you haven’t seen this, you’ll want to. First they ban all but low- and non-fat milk; now they want to remove milk entirely and replace it with SOY and RICE milk. WHAT is wrong with these people…?
- Here's the next book on my pile, in case you were wondering, it's called, “The Diet Cure” by Julie Ross. “For the more than eighty million Americans who diet regularly–and without success–this amazing new program, based on ten years of proven clinical results, offers a revolutionary approach to nutrition that can safely curb your cravings and make you feel better in less than twenty-four hours. The Diet Cure begins with an 8-Step Quick Symptom Questionnaire that helps readers identify their unique underlying biochemical imbalances, such as depleted brain chemistry caused by too much dieting, hormonal irregularities, blood-sugar swings, food allergies, thyroid dysfunction, and a deficiency of “good” fats. Then it provides targeted strategies and nutritional guidelines to correct those imbalances, along with meal plans, tasty recipes, and inspiring case histories. Using amino acids to jump-start the program, readers create a safe, customized, easy-to-follow plan to end their food obsessions and attain their ideal healthy weight for good.“
Have a great week!
