How to Make Healthy and Delicious Yogurt Popsicles


We have a tradition of making popsicles every Summer and I usually try and keep them "healthy-ish."  When the girls received flamingo popsicles molds we knew it was the perfect time to keep our tradition alive.  They were so excited to make them and it was a fun and easy project to do together.  This recipe couldn't be easier and it's quite healthy compared to any store bought popsicles.

Ingredients:
Directions:

Chop strawberries very small and place in a mixing bowl.  Add sugar and yogurt and mix.  Pour into molds and freeze overnight.  Run warm water over the molds for about 60 seconds, then carefully pop out the popsicles from the mold.  Store in a ziplock bag in the freezer.




How to Make Back to School Simple but Exciting

My girls are still at the age where back to school is lots of fun.  I dread the day they dread going back to school.  Although my girls are very excited about school I have mixed feelings.  I'm excited to have them out of the house but I'm not looking forward to having to be up and at of the house by 7:45 every morning.  It's not that I ever sleep in but it's just a lot to get four people (self included) all ready by that time.  I also wish I lived in a world where Summer lasted all year round.  I love the warm weather, the play dates, the trips and all that Summer brings (minus the darn mosquito's).

So I have one hand tightly holding onto Summer and the other busily preparing for Back to School.  I saw a meme that other day that said there are 5 seasons in a year: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall and Back to School.  It made me laugh and it's so true.  There is so much hype around back to school and so much to check off the to-do list.  There are subscriptions for just about everything now a days so why can't there be a biannual subscription for school supplies.  Delivery would be in August and January to replenish all that has broken, gotten lost, etc.  I'm going off on a tangent but maybe this is something I need to invent.  Because it's a pain to online shop and run to several stores to get everything you need for your kids to be ready to go.

Until I invent a one stop shop for Back to School shopping you are left with the current situation.  Since that's not the easiest and most convenient I've tried to make it much simpler for you and round up everything I think your children need and what is the best (all while staying affordable because that's my mantra).
