It's Pride Month, which is the perfect opportunity to teach the next generation a lasting lesson about equality, love and tolerance. You can celebrate with a family-friendly parade, check out books at the library, chalk rainbows and messages of love around town, or just talk about how people are not all made the same and that's ok.
This weekend also brings a whole slew of summery fun, and strawberries are ripe for the picking. Have a lovely one, friends!
