Ah, the glorious heat that precedes the month of August. If the weather is foretelling of how the rest of the Summer will be, than I must stress the importance of H2O! Water, water, water…people! Please be aware that we are educating the teens about the importance of staying hydrated during warm Summer months and I extend an invitation to continue rehearsing this habit at home as well.
