  • Tips for Back to School: Fueling the Brain for Learning

    It's the most wonderful time of the year. Have you seen that commercial?  It drives me nuts.  The kids are miserable and the father is skipping down the aisles of a business supply store with a gigantic smile on his face.  Do our kids really feel that terrible about going back to school?  And do we get that excited about the hectic school year?
