Summer is here! During this time of year I have romantic notions of sitting on the beach, digging my toes in the sand, reading a book, and watching my kids play peacefully by the water's edge.... but (as I am sure you know) there is a big difference between our ideals and our realities! Beach trips can be tons of fun AND also a ton of work, the weather (as we have already found) isn't always cooperative, and our little ones aren't always the peaceful cherubs we wish them to be.
I hear many anxious conversations around scheduling activities and camps for children, the stress of trying to work and find childcare coverage, as well as the deep desire to return to fond memories of "lazy summer days".
Last month, many of you shared your thoughts and feedback through our online survey - thank you! We've created ways to help provide you and your family with the relief you need and deserve this summer! With more classes for older children (such as our kids yoga class), summer membership sales, nature-based playgroups, outdoor classes, and more, we hope to be a place for your family to slow down, connect with one another, and build your community.
While you are out and about this summer, please know you are always welcome to stop in. Need a clean bathroom? A place to nurse/feed baby? Space from your "bored" kids? Please come into the Center ANYTIME - whether you are scheduled for a class/appointment or not - to enjoy a drink, sit in the air conditioning, and recharge.
Let's make it a great summer together!
