Given that we're still happily clinging to summer in our house (task I have not missed the least bit = packing school lunches), it's been amazing to already see friends updating about their kids heading back to school. And whether or not you're off this week with your kids, hopefully you can enjoy some of this week's picks via my FamilyFinds column. Also, below is one bonus event: a practical outing for expecting parents.
Friday, August 12 (11am - 2pm): If you need a little help or reassurance before bringing your bundle home, AAA and Dorel are hosting a free car seat safety event (at the Stop & Shop/ Martha Elliot Heath Center Parking Lot, 301 Center Street, Jamaica Plain), during which certified technicians will help families install car seats and also provide vehicle childproofing tips. There's no event website, but details will be on the Dorel Safety 1st Facebook page this week.
