June 2021
This time of year is such a busy time for my family.  My youngest daughter, Jordan, graduated from high school over Memorial Day weekend.  David and I celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary on June 6. (And yes, you Math Nerds, those numbers are correct so quit trying to make the math be something it is not. LOL  Yes, we have been married for FORTY years. Yes, we STILL have a teenager. Yes, I am still in my 50’s.  And yes, we were married for several years before we had children.)  Our daughter, Amber, is due to have her first baby on June 7.  And 2 of our daughters have June birthdays as well. It will be a busy and exciting month for my family!
As the weather warms up, I will be using more sunscreen on the children.  Summer also brings a return of those biting insects.  I greatly prefer to treat the yard monthly for mosquitoes rather than use DEET or other products on the children daily to keep them safe from those itchy bites.  I have found the yard treatments to work pretty well so I may only need to use products like Off on a rare day when the bugs are particularly bad.  All of you have filled out a Permission to Administer form when you enrolled your child in daycare.  That form instructs me on what products you want me to use or not use with your children. If you would like to review your form to make any changes, just let me know.   
During June, the children will spend one week learning about bugs, one week learning about the kinds of jobs workers do in our communities, one week learning about the life cycle from caterpillar to butterfly, one week having fun with things we can do outside in the summer, and we finish up the month of June celebrating our great country.
