It may be back-to-school season, but this time of year everyone is itching to get outside to soak up the last days of summer play. Which is great because school time generally means families get less active time together.

After school or on the weekend is the perfect time for an impromptu picnic to encourage adding more exercise to your weekly routines. Use the following ideas to up the fitness factor of your park and picnic play time:

Up To Scratch? Immaculate Gluten Free Double Chocolate Cookie Mix #glutenfree #IBBakesWell #PlatefullCoop
The taste of homemade cookies, still warm and fresh from the oven zapped me right back to my childhood! Whether it was my mother, my grand mother or my next-door neighbor's, I sure had plenty of cookies to enjoy!
I love offering my children that same experience and I know they look forward to each batch, hovering over the oven as they bake and anxiously asking when they'll be done. As I'm gluten-sensitive, though, (due to a medical condition,) I can't always enjoy the cookies or other baked goods with them, especially when I use a box mix. Which can truly be a bummer!

Back-to-school really threw me for a loop this year. The summer flew by and I really wasn't prepared for the school bus to arrive last week to whisk my children off to their classrooms. Truly, I think my head is still somewhere out there coasting the waves and sunning on the beach!
While my brain is still absorbing rays from beach blanket on the sand, I don't quite feel back in the groove or ready to take on Middle School homework sessions either... but alas, they have inevitably already arrived.
My girls have always loved receiving gifts that are personalized; so when I was asked to try the Stylish Scholars Combo set from Mabel’s Labels, I immediately said yes. While I did receive the set free of charge, all thoughts are my own and I only share information I feel will benefit you.
My daughter Melissa, who is 11 and starting her first year of middle school, was really excited to sit down with me and personalize her own Stylish Scholars Combo set. We had lots of fun choosing color combinations and deciding which labels would go where. Personalizing our labels was easy; we had plenty of space with a 20 character limit.
