Believe me, being in Central Texas, you learn to deal with heat and dry weather.  Having as much rain as we’ve had in the past three weeks has been a drastic change.  And, even though the rain has stopped for now, the new challenges we will face are just beginning.


Oh, we have mosquitos.  But, with the rains we’ve had, they will be out in force for a good long while.  So, imagine the mommy-thrill I got when I read this wonderful treatment for mosquito bites on Esther’s blog!

Break out the Crest and put a dab on all those bites.  Apparently the peppermint eliminates the “itch”.  You can even leave it on overnight if you keep them covered.

Thanks, Esther, for the tip!
