When I was a kid, we took our family vacations to Cape Cod every August. I remember patiently waiting to go away and how July just dragged on. Then we’d go on vacation and when we got home, it was immediately time to go back to school shopping, cram in the summer reading assignments, and spend as much time as we could swimming and boating and beaching before having to head back to the routines September brought. I can’t believe how quickly this summer has been flying past. Luckily, there are still plenty of summer related fun activities scheduled over the next few weeks.
I spent the morning hanging out with a bunch of awesome kids and parents at the creative playground behind John Pettibone School in New Milford. Every Thursday this month at 10am, aKindergarten Kids playdate takes place with fun events, activities, crafts and a story for kids. I had a blast making homemade bird feeders and coloring pictures of birds and trees with my little 5-year-old friends. If you have a child starting Kindergarten in the fall, come on down and meet some other children and parents in the same boat. It’s all about easing the transition to a full academic day by seeing more and more familiar faces.
