Warmer temperatures are popping up in Champaign-Urbana this week and with the last day of school approaching, we’re thinking about all the ways to beat the heat this summer
Are you ready to think all things pools, camps, creeks and more? We sure hope so, because summer is right around the corner
As we’ve crept closer and closer to the end of the school year, it hasn’t really felt like summer yet (hello, freeze warnings). But, BUT, that changes this weekend as summer temps are finally in the forecast and we can’t wait to start enjoying the first of these full, sunny weekends with our families. This will be a great week to go creek stomping because of all the rain. It is also a “last call” for sitting down to plan for summer camps you may be signing your child(ren) up for. Don’t miss noshing on some ice cream if you’d like to cool off, too!
chambanamoms.com thanks Champaign County CASA for presenting this weekend’s planner
Champaign County CASA is honoring May’s National Foster Care Awareness month by looking for individuals like YOU to become an Advocate for a local child. As an Advocate, you speak up for a child who has recently been placed in the foster system and ensure they find a safe, healthy, and permanent home. Apply now at casa4kids.org and follow CASA on Facebook and Instagram.
