Hi from Jenny

August 27 - September 3rd

By Jenny Sites August 27, 2020


This has been an exciting week at our house with everyone in virtual school and trying to get into a routine that works for all of us.  Virtual Learning is new to us so I put together some Tips & Tricks for Google Meet that you can check out HERE.

Do your kids need a little brain break during the day? Check out "Gimme A Break!" Brain Break Ideas to Get Kids Through The School Day.  You know what else kids love? Surprise Love Notes! You can get some free printables here.

Don't forget that routines take a while and all of this is new to everyone, so try to be patient, schedule a little extra time to get things done and do what you can the night before so you don't have to rush around in the morning. I know, I know, easier said than done!  Hang in there - you've got this!

Give yourself a break on dinner with these quick and easy Sheet Pan Fajitas!

Realize that you need more masks? This GUIDE has a list of local entrepreneurs who are making and selling masks, lanyards, ear savers, carrying essentials and more. They have a variety of options, including contactless pick up and/or shipping, so be sure to check them out!

If you're a parent who found that you're going to need a little more help with virtual school, homeschool, or you are just looking for some enrichment activities for your kids, check out this GUIDE to find some local businesses who can help.

If you're looking to get outside and get some fresh air, you can check out this GUIDE which lists local parks, battlefields and more.

If you have not done so already, please take a minute to answer a couple quick questions on our FEEDBACK SURVEY. Just looking for some quick feedback on what you'd like to see from us!

Wishing you a happy, healthy week full of family fun!
