Summer Countdown

At this time next week, I’ll be walking my daughters to school. The big one is starting grade 2, the little one will be going into senior kindergarten, and I’ll be starting my final semester of my college diploma. It seems impossible that our summer is almost over already!

Life Lesson: Test Your Waterproof Camera Before You Lose It!

A few years ago, I bought a waterproof, shockproof camera to keep in my purse for when I was out and about with my daughters. At the time, I didn’t have a cell phone that took very good pictures and I didn’t want to haul my DSL to the park with me.
