September–We are Brave Month

September is a month of transition and change for many people. It can be EXCITING for some and MISERABLE for others. Another emotion that is felt this time of year is FEAR. Almost all of our children are facing something new right now. That could be a new school, new activity or just a new teacher. These transitions can be difficult for some and that is why we focus on BRAVERY and COURAGE this month. 

September also celebrates International Peace Day and we have a great post about that celebration and a book list that will help to inspire peace and unity. We also have some service projects that would be great to work on this month and some fun days to celebrate with your kids. Talk Like a Pirate day is September 19th, ARGH!
