 I’m happy; it’s officially fall! Leaves are changing colors, some are even falling off trees, and it’s the season of soups and stews 😊 , baking and pumpkin spice. That chill in the air and the smell of leaves awakens my spirit and soothes my soul. I’m soaking it all in. All these signs hint at October’s arrival, and we’re here to help you prepare for it. With the changing of the seasons, we’re changing the style of delivery for our Idea for Every Day posts.

It appears that as the season comes to an end, the campsites are booked solid. So, we’re not the only crazies going out this late in the season! It truly was a weekend of memory making and I’m so glad we were able to do it before summer’s end! What's coming up this week? Well, I’m glad you asked.

Guess what, leaders? We made it through our first week of online teaching, and, to celebrate, God’s throwing down some snow-fetti! Honestly though, we needed it. The forests are aflame around us and we’re praying the moisture helps put them out. How’s your school year going so far? Have you started? What does it look like for you? We’re in it with you, 110% leaders! We want to support you in ANY way we can. One way we hope to support you is by giving you a reason to celebrate every day. We choose daily holidays and pair them with complementary learning activities for your Preschool to Sixth grade learner. Glance through our post, pick out the ones you like and have fun! Fun: a vital ingredient in learning. High interest topics stick better. Engaging lessons lead to innovative solutions in other places. You’ve seen it; you know it to be true. Let your learner’s interests guide and choose the activities that work for you. And just because we have them organized by date, doesn’t mean
