March Editor's Letter
It’s March! I look forward to this month’s arrival every year. In my mind, it signals that hope (read that as warmer temps and longer days) is on the horizon. We’ve made it through the depths of winter, and spring is just around the corner! Yes, yes, I do remember that it snowed through April last year, but that just means we’re due for an early spring this year!
With the longer days and warmer temps (I’m thinking positive and crossing my fingers and toes), the time has come to look ahead to summer, which will be here before we know it! Those three glorious months of freedom from school can drag on and be a bit long though. Never fear, summer camp to the rescue! From overnight camp to day camp to specialty camp and everything in between, we’ve got you covered with our extensive Camp Guide in print and online. Grab your calendar, sit down with the kids and use the guide to plan your most awesome summer ever!
At the start of this school year, my older suggested we plan ahead and meal prep lunches for the upcoming week. I thought it was a terrific idea because packing school lunches in the morning is not one of my favorite chores. She scoured Pinterest and found some tasty recipes, and now on Sundays, she and I work to prep lunches for the upcoming week. My younger wanted to be included, so now we often prepare two recipes. Sometimes we prep together and sometimes we tag team, but either way, I LOVE having a week’s worth of lunches ready to go by Sunday evening. Kids enjoy cooking and often can do more than you think in the kitchen. Check out Judy Goppert’s article on getting kids cooking and helping with meal prep.
Happy March! Happy spring break! Happy St. Pat’s!
