Those first few weeks when the kids head back to school can be among the most hectic for families. The lazy days of summer quickly give way to crazy schedules, homework and after-school activities. And don’t forget somehow managing to slip dinner into the middle of all that.
As our children prepare for back to school, routines are going to change and new schedules are going to form. The demands of homework, extracurricular activities, and sports often cause children and teens to go off their daily routines. Meal times, sleeping schedules, and regular hygiene habits alter, of which, all three factors are extremely important for proper health and mental development.
After living in Arizona my entire life and having been around and working with Arizona sheriffs like Cochise County sheriffs Jimmy Willson and Larry Dever, Coconino County Sheriff Joe Richards and Maricopa County Sheriff Jerry Hill, and even Joe Arpaio on one of his good days, it’s hard to imagine the new face of Arizona sheriffs is Pinal County “Sheriff Underpants” Paul Babeu.
I nearly fell out of my chair laughing the other morning when I read the headlines that Pulte was offering a $1 million incentive for the other golf course fix-up. Pulte doesn‘t have a clue.

There’s no denying it, summer time is here. For the next several months, we’ll hop from one air-conditioned spot to another, in the never-ending quest to escape the scorching heat. However, living in the Valley of the Sun does have its rewards. Aside from stellar sunsets, we are fortunate to have myriad staycation opportunities right in our own backyard.
