Oh my goodness, it is so nice to have the kids back in school. Say what you want about the carefree days of summer, but I prefer the routines of school and extracurricular classes. Speaking of classes, if you haven't chosen any fall enrichment like music or dance, don't worry—there are still open houses and trial classes happening all this week. (If you haven't chosen your child's school for this year, however, it may be time to panic.)
This week is full of musical and cultural offerings for families, from Movin' and Groovin' with the PJ Library to enjoying traditional music and dance of Hawaii. Get your dot markers ready, too, because International Dot Day is this Thursday! (And yes, that's really a thing.) We're excited because it's all about each child making his or her mark on the world, and the celebration is based on local author and bookseller Peter H. Reynolds' beloved book, The Dot.
Good to know: the Boston Children's Museum is closed for annual maintenance on Monday and Tuesday, but our Event Calendar is full of other ideas if you need to make a quick change of plans. Have a wonderful week!
