dealing with the heat

I don't know about other people's children, but mine want to play outside no matter how hot it gets.

I make sure to keep them well hydrated. Lots and lots of water. Potassium if needed, and salty snacks if wanted, too. Lots of bananas and other fresh fruit is helpful. Staying in the shade, taking breaks and resting, wearing hats, playing with the hose, and using suntan lotions always makes it easier to deal with the heat.

My son is saving up for a used car. He's not 16 yet, but he doesn't want to have to wait - the day he gets his license is the day he'll buy his own vehicle.

We found a great place to buy a used car. It's - in case you haven't heard of it. We actually found a lot of great things through that website. Stuff people don't want anymore, leads on jobs for the teens, etc.

I just love that place. Most everything is free to post there, but some job and housing ads cost something, depending on where you live.
