November is Native American Heritage Month!

This website is a great tool to look at all the different Native Tribes that originally inhabited the world. You can even zoom in to specific areas of Portland and Gresham.

Gratitude Practice

Going into the fall/winter months I find that gratitude is so important. Especially now that we are still stuck inside during COVID in these dark and rainy months. Studies show that having a gratitude practice can help with mood and emotion regulation. This is a great activity to do with kids too!
