Weekly Publisher Note from June 6 - 12, 2021

June 6, 2021

Welcome Friends,

It is June and what a beatiful time of year. The next 10 days is supposed to be in the high 60's - mid 70's. Perfection! As it starts to get warmer, what summer fun activities does your family enjoy to cool off in the summer? Some of the activities that we have done are: running through the sprinkler, having a bike wash, packing up the kids to head to the beach, having squirt gun fights and water balloon fights, hopping in the pool, planning a day at the park for a picnic in the shade, taking popsicles outside to cool down, playing in the water table, setting up big buckets of water and letting the kids float boats, etc., and so many more fun activities to cool everyone off.
I hope you all have a great start to the summer. This pandemic has been a challenge for all of us. I think this summer we will all have to find ways to celebrate and get outdoors and back to a more normal lifestyle.

“June is the gateway to summer.”

Hi, I'm Erika.  I'm originally from New England and moved to Carlsbad almost 5 years ago.  My family and I are enjoying the weather, laid back beach community and lots of family fun here.  When I am not watching my son's hockey games, or dance routines, you will find me exploring tidepools at the beach with my family.

Hi, I'm Jodi. I am the mom to 3 adults (1 son and 2 daughters), 2 grandsons and 2 dogs (a Labradoodle-Jeter and a Goldendoodle-Diggs). I love spending time with them and you can typically find us together playing Cribbage or Carbles on the weekends. I am a hockey mom through and through. I have been to many states traveling with my family to watch my kids/grandkids play hockey, I love to support my kids and I love all the fun local events. I really enjoy my job with Macaroni Kid.
