No Old School Monday until Sept!

Hello Moms!

Summer business and travel are upon most of us, so I think we will suspend our official OSM for the rest of the summer. BUT if anyone wants to gather for any other reason, please feel free to suggest something!

AND when we have our first OSM in Sept--on the 27th, by my calendar--we will have a Back to School party, with our "annual" Summer Adventures Show and Tell. So as you have family adventures this summer, keep in the back of your mind how you could get your kids interested in some schoolish way to share it later, like a picture book, a travel journal, a collage, etc. I strongly recommend making writing be a requirement! Each interested family can make a table display. See our last year's write up for ideas.

Have a great summer, everyone!

P.S. I want to talk with all of you more this next fall about making times that are good for everyone. So if you were not able to come with the switch to afternoon, let's talk about that! I care about all of you, and miss those who we have not seen for a while. : )
