Find Your Family Fun! Don't Worry About School, It Will Be Ok.

By Melissa Shrader Editor Publisher Loveland Macaroni Kid August 3, 2020


Summer isn't over and there is still time to have fun in the sun, learn something and enjoy some great food. That's what this issue is all about. Relaxing, enjoying each other and just soaking up the rest of summer. 

Plus I have a rundown on the School district guidelines and choices for ways to have your child attend school. No matter if you choose to physically send your child to school, have them attend virtually or even homeschool. Just know, it's the right decision. You are the only one who can make that decision for your family, only you know your family and what they need to help them progress grow and flourish. Know that it isn't the end of the world if it doesn't work out. Chances are your child will be just fine no matter what, and if something needs to be changed or adjusted. It's ok. You can do what it takes to adjust. This is new for everyone. We just need to make sure our kids are happy, educated and entertained. That's something I can help with. 

Keep a Watchful Eye! 

The calendar will slowly begin to repopulate with in person events and we will keep virtual events too. Many of the usual events we would normally see during the summer have been canceled and will not resume again till next year. Some have just rescheduled. Keep an eye out I will be verifying events asap and regularly.  We will update you as we get information. Most updates will happen on Facebook and here. 

Online Events and Gatherings that are open to all are welcome on our calendar. Do you have a virtual class, A virtual event, Something fun for everyone?  Post it on our calendar at

Don't forget to checkout Facebook too for other events that have been popping up randomly since the State has changed the Stay at home quarantine to the Safer at home guideline.

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. Now that COVID has come please comply with the COVID guidelines requested by each establishment and organizer. If you have a question with their policies pleases contact them directly.

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. (see the tabs on the right or at the bottom to visit the social site) 

Wishing you Love, Light and fun for the week (and your life) ahead! 

Stay safe, Stay healthy, Love, Live and Be Fierce for what you believe,
