Looking back at June 2014

HHFiberFestsmileKIDSIt was a lovely, laid back month of June for my family and hanging out here on the blog. We’ve settled into our Summer rhythm and the warm days are a welcome mix of rest, activity, and fun.

Just the way I like my Summers to be.

So, what did the month of June look like here on the Simple Kids blog?

Well, to recap the month, we ….

… shared a quick sneak peek at our Love Book exchange package that we sent. I’ll share what we received in a few days.

… got ready for a Summer of fun with Kiwi Crate and our annual Backyard Summer Nature Camp.


explored bubbles in our new Did You Know? series. You can check out the other posts in the series so far on our Pinterest board. There’s not a lot there just yet but we’ve got more fun topics coming up, so stay tuned!

… invited you to Come Follow, Follow Us to the farmers market and a fiber festival.


… shared 5 Ideas for Unplugged Summer Play for you and your kids.

… and don’t forget we are hosting a giveaway through July 5 for the Teaching From Rest bundle.

June was also a big month for our family as we celebrated my son Max’s 8th birthday and we wrapped up our 2013-2014 homeschool year.

I can’t wait to see what happens in July!
