Create healthy, easy snacks

One of the things I really look forward to each summer is our grandchildren's vacation away from their parents. They spend this time with their grandparents in Hinesville and seem as equally excited to be here as we are to have them. It's also a wonderful bonding time for "the cousins" - as they call themselves.

For years now, every day, often many times a day, she suddenly will start jogging in a big circle around the family room or anywhere else in the house when the urge strikes. She stops when one of us tells her to stop, but a bit later she's off again. We've sent her outside to run many times, but that doesn't help either. While this may sound like a minor problem, it is so strange and it's most certainly driving us nuts. Help!
