REVIEW: Challenger British Soccer Camp

Posted: 31 Aug 2015 10:33 AM PDT



My daughter Sophia is not our sports enthused and talented child.  She’s always excited about the nature and science themed camps offered by the county every year, but we have to give her a little nudge to make sure she gets as much exercise as we’d like.  We’ve heard a lot of praise for the

Black Beans and Rice Recipe square Joy Makin' Mamas



Even the best of us have had a day that got away from us and realized that everyone is hungry and there's nothing in the fridge but a few paltry leftovers that won't quite make a full dinner for the family and the last of the milk.

One minute she was living her teenage life in suburban Chicago...and the next minute, she was in a strange place and in a brand new school with absolutely no

They are a widely recognized symbol of strength. They are not always pretty. The very things that make them strong scar them. They have bad
