Parent Perusals

April 18, 2019

A Note from Kimberly

I enjoy cooking and am a sucker for recipe books and have lots of fun looking at different recipes. When I come across a recipe online that I want to keep, I just take a screen shot of it so as I was looking at my recipes to try to find something new to take to my family Easter gathering, I was reminded that last Easter my girls and I made this cute dessert!

I look forward to this time of the year when the weather warms up and the pace slows down a little because it's the simple things like making Easter dirt cake with my girls that boosts my energy and reminds me how blessed I am.

As you approach this Easter season and weekend, I do hope you find the time to do something simple to boost your energy and help you focus on your blessings.

In this edition of Parent Perusals, I've shared some Easter/Spring family activities that are not only fun, but are also "tricky" ways to keep your kids engaged and learning while having fun!

Don't forget to check out the upcoming parent training offerings here at ESC-20. There are only 7 remaining this school year!
