The warm weather has arrived and you are finally remembering the reason you choose to live in Michigan. When the shorts and t-shirts are pulled out from their long-term storage, everyone’s mind turns to summer plans and exciting vacations. Unfortunately, our alarm clocks quickly remind us that we still have another month of school to survive before we can fully relax and the fun can begin. So, how do you and your child survive the last month of school, the time when you’d rather be outdoors than at the table doing Math homework? Here are a few pointers to help get you to the end:
Michigan is a great place to live with its changing seasons and fabulous summer activities. As you look forward to enjoying your time away from the routine of school, be sure to finish strong so that everyone heads into summer on a high note. Who knows, it might make going back in the fall that much easier too.

We’re really excited to let you know that we’re a part of the Art Van Charity Challenge, a fundraising campaign launched by Art Van Furniture.
It all starts on May 18th and to give back, they’ll be donating $370,000 to local organizations. The charity that raises the most during the Challenge will get a $75,000 donation to their cause. In addition, the charities that come in 2nd through 10th place will also get donations to their causes ranging from $7500 to $65,000. We’re ready to raise as much money as we can for our cause so we can win the $75,000 grand prize donation. And, we really need your help to make it happen.
