Keep exploring this fall
Publisher's note by Amy Irwin
Yet another amazing Grey/Bruce summer has come and gone. It seemed to be the perfect mix of just hot enough, with all the sunny days explorers and beachgoers needed to be happy, and just the right amount of rain at just the right time to keep the farmers happy too.
Our family had a fantastic summer, spending time camping, at the beach, and many evenings and weekends at local ball diamonds, as both kids played this year. Our girls also took in a couple of day camps, our oldest started babysitting a day a week (where did that time go?), and they experienced their first non-family wedding, where they danced the night away.
The experts are saying it’s supposed to be a beautiful fall, weather-wise, perfect for continuing to embrace all Grey/Bruce has to offer. This issue has my family’s story about how exploring and travelling doesn’t have to end as soon as summer does, and as life seems to get so much busier in October, we think it’s important to embrace travel in the September shoulder season. Our family is travelling in the fall again this year, heading to the Greek Islands when most kids are back in school.
In this issue, we also profiled the new Children’s Safety Village, just outside of Hanover. This is going to be a fantastic resource for local schools and community groups, to help teach children safety in all aspects of their life, in a fun and interactive environment.
We also have an educational article about your children’s teeth and what to look for as they age, an article with tips for inclusive play, and a piece about easy meal planning now that lunchboxes need to be filled again.
As always, our gratitude goes to our contributors, advertisers, distributors and you, our reader! Thank you for continuing to help make Grey-Bruce Kids magazine the go-to source of local information for local parents.
I hope the first weeks of back to school/work/daycare go smoothly for your family this fall!
