Power of Moms Retreat Recap

photo edited

Hey friends!  I am so excited to tell you about the POWER OF MOMS  retreat that Brooke and I had the privilege of attending a couple of weeks ago.  If you've never been to the Power of Moms website, YOU MUST.  It's always been one of our favorites here at Crafting Chicks and it's the most amazing parenting site.  Saren and April and their 300 authors are REAL, HONEST, EMPOWERING and so very RESOURCEFUL.  I love it also because they talk so much about "Deliberate" in your parenting.  THIS CONCEPT IS POWERFUL and I love that they remind all of us that we can plan, prepare, and make our families and parenting experiences wonderful and purposeful.

Is my house the only one that it's impossible to keep snacks in during the summer? It seems the kids are bottomless pits, and then there's the trips to the pool, picnics, and friends that all require more snacks. This is a family favorite recipe that you can customize to fit your families taste. It's a simple recipe and chances are you already have everything you need!
