Sunny Days With Swim Ways

Since my son was born, I've been looking forward to his first summer.  I love all of our summer activities; camping at the lake, visiting our island family, and hiking as much as possible.  However, I never stopped to think about the technicalities of all of these activities, swimming in particular.

I get a lot of questions about when makeup and other personal care products expire.  Below is a general guideline for you to follow.  I suggest writing the purchase date on products when you purchase them.

For a while now I've used a medium sized tote to organize my first aid kit.  However, the more time passes, the harder it seemed to get to find what I needed, when I needed it. Since I didn't want to spend a lot of money, I started to look at the containers I had around the house.  I always have plastic shoe boxes.  You can buy these at a local super store or from The Container Store.  I love ...
