We All Can Use A Play Date
by Charmaine Hunte
I just love summertime, don’t you? Long bright summer days, warm nights, barbeques, weddings and the summer fashions, I love all of it. In its honour of summer will be the theme of Cacia Chronicles for the month of July. Just as all things come to an end, summer will too so take some time to enjoy it.
For all the moms and dads out there you can appreciate the value of having a play date for your children. Guess what you need a play date as well; a play date is a great way to recharge and energize.
