Publisher's Corner: Back to School & Back To Routines.

By Melissa Shrader Editor Publisher Loveland Macaroni Kid January 7, 2019

Welcome To Publishers Corner, 

Back to work - so to speak - without having to keep kids busy with projects, games etc, or dropping them at day camps or at family's house for the day. 

I work at home and it can be a bit rough getting the time to work while kiddo is around. I love her so much, but it does take some creativity to get time to work. Its bitter sweet when I send her back to school. I do love having her around so much that I tend to entertain the idea of Homeschooling. Then I get her back in school and remember how social she is and know that she loves being in school for that element. I know I couldn't supply that much play everyday. 

So, while I'll miss her when she goes back, I'll also breathe a sigh of relief that I can work during daytime hours instead of staying up overnight to work. Those who work with me know that they are getting emails at all hours of the night LOL!  

On that note its back to our regular schedule.  Back to School, Back to music class, back to Girl Scouts and Back to all of our other scheduled events. So Back to the regular schedule for everyone in our house. Back to routine and back to working at school, work and life. 

For me I will now focus on finalizing the Preschool fair, set up a Nutcracker movie screening,  set up a Summer Camp fair and so on. 

The Preschool & Kid's activities fair is shaping up nicely with several preschools, local classes and training, and other resources that help parents make parenting easier.  

Hope to see you there! When you ask? January 26th 10 - 1 at the Lincoln Center. We will have Wishes Come True bring some of their princess friends, Helping Parents Parent will be bringing Jalepenia again, and we will have some simple snacks. We may even have a face painter!  Not to mention the real reason for the fair. The schools and other activities available. See the article to see the list of schools & companies coming.

Don't forget to checkout Facebook too for other events. 

 The Preschool & Kids Activities Fair is coming January 26th. The Summer Camp Fair will be in March. I'm looking at doing a Back To School fair in July too. 

If you have other things you want to see Mac Kid do drop me an email. If you want to partner with Mac Kid I'd love to hear from you.

Remember with any event, If the weather looks questionable - Always check in with the event itself to be sure the event is still on! You can call or text me as well. ESPECIALLY IN SPRING AND FALL.

If you have the newsletter you only have part of the fun! I post on Facebook, twitter, Pinterest, Instagram with holiday and everyday crafts, recipes, special offers, contests, news and new events.

Wishing you Love, Light & fun for the week ahead!

Happy New Year!
