This Week’s Buzz: May 25th – May 31st

Summer is Here 

In case the huge amount of pre-school ending pics on your FB feed didn’t clue you in, summer is here. Load up on your sunscreen, visors, goggles, swim caps, chlorine shampoo, and patience — because as Dr. Amy hinted at last week, summer brings with it lots of opportunities, but not always a lot of routine.We do the crazy combo of babysitter and camp and beach vacation and mommy time in the summer – which means no days looks like the day before or the day after. Our school year rules (no screen on school nights, early-ish bedtime) tend to go right out the open window. It’s even harder to maintain order when the days don’t carry the predictability of the school year. Swim team helps. A camp week here or there makes a difference. We do the summer reading program at the Library (sign up starts June 1!) and that helps too.

What helps the most is what always helps the most…
