Spring, warm weather, green, growing, flowers, grass, what’s not to love about June! Flag Day and Father’s Day, Shavuot and Ramadan, and the Summer Solstice; more holidays, traditions, and events!
Flag day, often forgotten on June 14th, is another holiday to be celebrated and a chance to join in patriotic merriment, especially since it’s an election year! (State Caucus is June 7th, and the State Primary Election is June 14th) Activity ideas for kids can be found at sites like: http://www.notimeforflashcards.com/2013/06/flag-day-activity-for-kids.html and crafts ideas are available at http://www.childfun.com/holidays/summer/flag-day Fun for all!
Vacation time starts, graduations are wrapping up, and s’mores and fire pit seasons begin! I love the Summer Solstice; it’s both a nice day, and a sad one. That day is the longest day of the year as well as the shortest night. That also means the days start getting shorter again, alas, sad.
We wish everyone a lovely and fun filled June!
