My memory is a tricky beast.  Perfectly designed for recalling inconsequential trivia, random nonsense, movie quotes, and song lyrics, it does not seem to hold on to some of the more salient details of life, such as former classmates names or exact dates.  

With the trip back to school, comes a special issue for parents to fret about: lunchtime.  It is vitally important for parents to know what their children are eating and drinking throughout the day, as nutrition plays a vital role in how well a student is situated for learning.  Hunger and a lack of energy will set your kids up for failure from the get-go. 

Wow!  It’s almost time to head back to school!  Summer ends way too quickly, it seems, especially for the little ones who now have to trudge back out to school every day (and the littler ones who are attending for the first time).  The schoolyard brings with it a host of health and safety concerns for children.  Here are a few things to be mindful of going through the year:
