Summer Soccer Camp in the Valley of the Sun! Love that indoor soccer while the temperatures are in the triple digits are available to us. The Challenger British Soccer Camp was a hit again and Raymond TRULY LOVES soccer now.
Honestly, there is not much worth playing if you don’t LOVE what you’re doing. At four he should LOVE everything he is doing-as really it is all about the fun of the game. Sportsmanship, playing with your team, and learning the basic skills to be successful in the regular season come second to FUN.
The British Soccer Coach, Jon, did a wonderful job wrangling a surly bunch of 4, 5, and 6 year olds. The games were HILARIOUS and I was so proud that Raymond listened to his coach this year and wanted to play in every game with his friends.
You can find more information about the Challenger British Soccer Camps HERE.
Don’t forget to check out my MUST HAVES that you need for soccer camp. I am thankful that sunscreen is not on our list out here in the desert! Indoor for the win!
What were your favorite summer activities to do as a kid?
Would love to hear from you!

Summer is fast approaching friends! Today I am sharing all about my Summer Cravings- Food + Fashion! I am living in my new favorite jeans from Prana and am spicing up snack time with Stonyfield Greek Yogurt. Summer is going to be GOOD.
Plus I am GIVING away a pair of jeans to one of you lucky readers!
Prana Kara Jean (Organic)
The temperatures are staying in the mid 80s here at night and so cooling off is all in the eye’s of the beholder. I maintain that jeans are a year round fashion piece. Prana makes the Kara Jean which feels LIKE BUTTER on. The fabric is incredibly breathable with maintaining a thickness that would allow me to wear it teaching. Definitely a WIN-WIN.
I am craving all things that make me feel like the desert is my own tropical paradise. Painting my toes white feels like I should be taking off for a vacation at the beach. Greek Yogurt with a LARGE handful of blueberries? YUM.
Who says eating healthy needs to be painful? Not I.
Stonyfield Greek Yogurt + Fresh Blueberries
Now you get a chance to win a pair of the jeans I am wearing! There are SO many fun colors and patterns to choose from. Plus the pants are long for this 5’7” frame so they will easily be able to roll down to wear a pair of snappy heals or in boots this next Fall. Fashion Win.

Good, clean oral health care is incredibly important to me! Here I am in my 30s without a cavity-which I completely give credit to my mother as she instilled essential healthy practices at such a young age. Sharing some of our No Cavity Game Plan today and would love for you to share any helpful hints as well!
The force is STRONG with this one.
Although to be fair, as the Dark Side has cookies, he definitely chose wisely with his Firefly Kylo Ren Lightsaber. The lights, sound, and length of time make it easy for my preschooler to work on his brushing skills.
We brush twice a day, every day.
We floss, every day.
No eye rolls.
We just added this awesome rinse at night time. Tastes delicous and both kids love that they can do it ALL BY THEMSELVES. You know the phase we are in… so important for them to be independent.
The Firefly Spider-Man Fun Pump Rinse is sugar-free, alcohol free and boasts an amazing melon flavor that kids will love. LOVE this added step at night. The kids do too.
REACH Advanced Design Toothbrush
The REACH Advanced Design Toothbrush has longer outer bristles and shorter inner bristles to perfectly clean along the gum line and the plaque from every tooth. This toothbrush is available at Walmart and Walgreens in a value pack of two toothbrushes.
Reach Ultra Clean Toothbrush
Good overall health begins with good dental health. Did you know that you need to change your toothbrush every three months? It also needs to be changed every time you get over a cold! Replacing a toothbrush this often means that it’s a good idea to always have an arsenal of extras, just in case. REACH is a trusted brand with a wide variety of products that offer more benefits for a lower price than the competition. The REACH UltraClean toothbrush is available at Walmart and Target and provides a complete clean feeling with floss-like bristles and a tongue cleaner. Available in a single count or a 4-count value pack, this toothbrush is perfect to have handy for guests staying the night or in every bag so you’ll always have a toothbrush on the go.
Reach Ultra Clean Toothbrush
Emma Marie LOVES purple and her heart was set on the Reach Ultra Clean Toothbrush.
Although both kids attempt to brush their teeth every morning and night-I always go through and do a clean sweep to make sure every surface gets scrubbed. Sure, it adds on to the list of things I need to do every day- BUT it is their health. So definitely a no-brainer.
Firefly Kylo Ren Lightsaber
As part of the complete Firefly Star Wars Collection, the Kylo Ren Lightsaber toothbrush lights up for 60 seconds, teaching kids to brush for one full minute on each row of teeth. The toothbrush can be found at Walmart and Walgreens, and it comes equipped with a protective cap to ensure the bristles and the brush head stay clear of any bacteria from the sink or countertop.
Firefly Kylo Ren Lightsaber
The EPIC Lightsaber battles that have commenced are hilariously awesome. I am always a Jedi. I prefer the Lightside of the force….
Firefly has come up with genius ways to make something that is SO IMPORTANT-fun. Bravo Firefly, Bravo! You have made this Mom’s job easier and a lot more thrilling.
