Have you heard of ISR?

My kids doing the ISR float, last summer.
Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) is NOT your average swim lesson, this is survival swimming.

Something that speaks volumes is when your child can accomplish a goal at such a young age and you no longer have to worry.  You know that they will be safe.  If you live around water(we live on the coast of Florida) you know there are pool, beaches, rivers, streams, creeks and all sorts of water.  It is a necessity to learn how to swim…..but not just swim, how to survive if you fall in.  How does a child learn how to survive with no life-jacket if they fall in?  They float and call for help, that's how.  Traditional swim lessons (that we did) don’t teach how to float, they just teach how to swim.   Well swimming gets tiring and they need to rest, enter the ISR float.

Podcast with Farmer Roger

Supporting local is a huge part of what I do, and why I teach.  Helping to support local farmers and business keeps my money local.

In our latest podcast, Melanie and I interviewed Farmer Roger from Green Cedars Farm.  If you have not been to his farm, it is a MUST.  The whole family will enjoy it! 

Roger offers many wonderful pastured animals and eggs.  I have tried everything he has offered from eggs, pork, chicken, turkey, lamb and even rabbit, and I am ALWAYS pleased with the high quality!  He is a staple at our local farmers market.   Go say hi and learn a little about REAL FOOD farming!
