June 5 - World Environment Day
Our first holiday encourages awareness and action to protect our environment all around the world. We can celebrate it by picking up trash near our homes or in our lakes and parks, planting trees, flowers, and produce, and by respecting the plants and animals in our area. A fun aspect of this holiday is the theme! Last year's theme for World Environment Day was Air Pollution, while this year it's Biodiversity. Let's get planting!
June 8 - Best Friends Day
We love this day! Take this time to thank your best friend for being there for you, spend the day together, and maybe even buy them a little gift to show your appreciation. This holiday is especially fun for the little ones. Making friendship bracelets, having sleepovers, and playing games are all fun celebration activities for the kidlets on June 8!
June 20 - First Day of Summer
Finally, summer is HERE! As we pull the swimsuits and sunscreen out of their hiding spots, we imagine all the fun we'll have this summer roasting s'mores, boating, hiking, and the like. This day can be celebrated by going for a swim (backyard or at a friend's pool) or a day trip, turning on the sprinklers , or even coloring with chalk on the sidewalk! Sometimes we just gotta put on some sunblock and get messy....who wants a slice of watermelon? :)
June 21 - Father's Day
And, of course, we wouldn't forget the most important June holiday, Father's Day. We take this day to specifically remind ourselves that we wouldn't be here to day without our fathers & father figures, and we remind them how much we love them. Think about all the wonderful memories you have with your dad this June 21st! We celebrate by going hiking, fishing, and making a good, hearty meal for the end of the day.
We can't wait for all the fun holidays!! How about you? Tag @tcmobilemommy while creating your home garden, hanging out with your best friend, boating, and spending the day with Dad. By taking every opportunity to celebrate these holidays, you can make this June one to remember!
We all know what’s coming! It has already started to creep up on us...the colder temperatures, shorter days & soon enough the snow that gives us the name “Minnesnowta.”
We have had a wonderful Fall with the beautiful foliage, apple orchard outings, and now pretty soon we can cozy in as the holidays approach.
If you've been, like us, a little too optimistic for the sunny 60 degree day made one more appearance, you might have been holding out on putting away your patio set. Sadly, at this point it doesn't look too likely, so we might as well try to avoid any rusty furniture and Summer gear & plan to store the remaining equipment and toys while we can still see the grass.
