[meet] Via Christi’s New West Campus

Over the past few years, the west side of Wichita has seen an influx of minor emergency centers and specialty doctors. Take a drive around the west side and you’ll find dentists and orthodontists a-plenty. Now, we have a new hospital: Via Christi Hospital on W. St. Teresa.
Just past the Northwest YMCA, off 21st Street, Via Christi West sits on 120 acres surrounded by open pastures, overlooking the Mohr family barn, listed on the National Register Of Historic Places. The location will appeal to rural patients who don’t want to come to the “big city,” …

[do] Summer Family Fun in Wichita

When the bell rang on the last day of school, my third-grader announced, “Let the 3-month Wii marathon begin!” If he had his way, this is exactly how the summer would be spent: endless hours playing video games in his underwear with short breaks to eat Cheetos and nap between levels. As a parent, I know my job is to break up the monotony of summer, so I’ll give him a few days to hang out in his PJs, but then it’s time to wipe the Cheeto dust …

[shop] Cute Clothes for Kids on the Cheap

Unfortunately, as most parents know, I barely get things off the hanger before my daughter has outgrown them. Thankfully, Wichita has a variety of children’s resale and consignment shops where I can sell and trade these almost-new clothes.
