A Note From Your Publisher: The one about the summer pivot 📝

By Christen Reiner, Macaroni KID Lakewood-Littleton & Macaroni KID Denver Editor and Publisher July 6, 2024

Hey Mac Families,

I usually use "previously released" Note From Your Publisher" during the busy weeks of summer break, but I had to jump on this week with a new one. We are currently experiencing the summer sickness pivot... you know the one, where someone in the fam is sick, and it is creating the need to completely change up your summer plans? Yeah, that.

Those fun traditions that you do every year? Nope.

Hanging out with friends or family? Nope.

Getting out of the house to take advantage of the summer sunshine? Nope again.

The worst part is that we are getting sick one at a time, so we are on week 3 of adjusting our plans. Not gonna lie, it stinks.


It has given me the opportunity, however forced it might be, to hang out with each of my kids by themselves. And, that's pretty fun.

So, we are trying really hard to embrace the pivot. We are trying to see how much fun we can come up with within our limitations. It's not the summer that we envisioned, but we have done some pretty cool stuff together.

So, yay for still managing to have fun... but we'll take any healing vibes you care to throw our way.

Peace ☮️, Love ❤️, & Macaroni 🌼,
