Have your kids gone back to school yet? Kal starts college today, and the younger kids have one more week. We have a few more things we need to cram in before summer is over. (We made a list of things we wanted to do this summer and they’re all FREE!) I want to get the kids over to Lake Michigan once more (only about 45 minutes from us!), and I still owe them a nature walk in our woods. I’ve been putting that off because I’m not real excited to romp around with the snakes out back.
- This dietician recommends eating fast food! “On The Today Show, Matt Lauer hosted dietitian Elizabeth Ward to discuss how to make “healthy” food choices on a road trip.

See if you can make it through and then let us know your thoughts.

Have a great day!
