It is officially summer, Northwest Arkansas! I love many things about the South but the summers have never been something I was fond of. Humidity, scorching heat, legs sticking to the car interior even with the air conditioner on full blast – none of these things look good on me. But as I’ve gotten older I’ve learned to embrace and even love the good and not-so-good things that summer in the South bring, like messy popsicle mouths and watching the little ones chase the fireflies around the backyard.
We have so many amazing resources up in our little corner of the natural state that it would be a shame not to take advantage of them all. Summer camps abound in our community and we decided to highlight some incredible ones for you in our last summer camp issue of the year! So bookmark these pages and let us be your family’s go-to guide for adventurous, educational or just plain fun summer camps!
In addition to June being the kick off of summer, nestled within this month is a very special holiday: Father’s Day. I like to think that my dad and my husband are the best fathers in the world, but I know I’m being a bit biased! I want to take a moment to celebrate all the dads in Northwest Arkansas and let them know they are appreciated. Whether you are a dad by birth, adoption, marriage or surrogate we thank you for all you do to support your family each and every day.
Coming up in July is our normal back-to-school preview but we are also debuting a pet-guide because we can’t forget about the furry members of our families. This guide will include pet services, shops, grooming, boarding and so much more so keep an eye out for it! If you or someone you know has a pet-related business that you would like to see featured in the pet guide let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy your summer adventures everyone and don’t forget the sunscreen!
From my family to yours,
